Organizers of the 2021 Furnace Fest have announced that all attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results to gain entry into the event. The festival is currently scheduled to take place at the Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, AL on September 24-26.
The following statement was issued:
“As a result of the increase in Covid-19 cases, we are majorly and proactively stepping up our precautions.
The safety of our fans and team is our top priority.
As such, a negative COVID-19 test or proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required to attend Furnace Fest 2021.
Even though the festival is a 100% outdoor event, we highly encourage all our friends to get fully vaccinated at least two weeks before the fest.
A negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 72 hours (3 days) of first entering Furnace Fest for fans who are not fully vaccinated.
The two-fold aim of these measures is to keep everyone safe and our friends in business.
We have an opportunity to showcase the neighborliness, thoughtfulness, and community for which Birmingham is famous.

Negative Covid-19 tests will be required for all non-vaccinated fans at Furnace Fest and all pre/after parties.
Proof of Covid-19 vaccinations will be required at Furnace Fest events in the form of a vaccination card, a photocopy of your vaccination card, or an electronic picture of your vaccination card on your phone.
All the above will remain the same for indoor pre/after-parties, except we require masks to be worn at all times while inside.
Furnace Fest will have masks on-site but ask you to please also bring your own
Hand sanitizer stations will be positioned throughout the venue grounds.
