MTN Bushfire’s priority is maintaining the health and safety of the festivalgoers, artists, staff, and communities around the festival. To this end, a number of important Covid-19-related health and safety measures have been instituted. Valid proof of full vaccination (a “vaccination certificate”) is required to enter the festival. Please go to the vaccination certificate verification stand prior to getting your wristband.

The fresh air and outdoor nature of MTN Bushfire is a big safety feature in itself! Our Covid Safety planning and protocols have been independently assessed and certified by global health and safety experts from Eyethu Events, based in South Africa, who will be monitoring Covid Safety compliance and coordinating safety measures for us at the festival.
