Health and Safety


In the interest of safety and a rapidly changing health environment for all the attendees, volunteers, and artists, Hopscotch Music Festival will have updated Health and Safety for the 2021 festival September 9, 10, and 11 in Raleigh, NC. Our Health and Safety protocols will become more detailed as we approach the festival dates, and are subject to change as federal and local regulations evolve. 

Earlier this year, when we found out that we would be able to produce a festival in 2021, we made the decision to move to a completely outdoor show footprint with a reduced capacity to present the safest festival possible. It is with that same goal in mind that we will continue to monitor safety guidelines moving forward. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding with our ever-evolving event plan for this year’s festival, and we cannot wait to get back to live music with you all. 


With the current rise in COVID-19 and our concern for community wellbeing, full COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results will be required to attend Hopscotch Music Festival. For patrons who are not fully vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 72 hours for each day that you attend the festival.

Attendees must bring a photo ID, and either proof of vaccination or a negative test.

Masks are strongly encouraged, regardless of seating location and vaccination status, and required at any indoor space.


  • A vaccination card.
  • A photocopy of your vaccination card.
  • An electronic picture of your vaccination card on your phone.
