Hangtown Music Festival

Vaccination required to attend, subject to change

Placerville, Calif.- The iconic Hangtown Music Festival in Placerville, an energized Halloween themed adventure caps off each year’s festival season has recently announced health protocols for this year’s event.

Proof of vaccine will be required for entry to the event at this time. A final decision will be made closer to the event based on community health conditions. The following information has been released.

Due to the current Delta variant surge, the festival has decided (for now) to require proof of vaccination for all staff, patrons, vendors and volunteers who attend Hangtown. It is our hope, based on projections, that the surge will be over by Hangtown, which would allow us to require either vaccination or testing for entry, but that decision can’t be made until we are closer to the event. We will keep you posted as the situation changes. Any refund and/or transfer requests due to the vaccination requirement will be considered after a final decision is made about this policy.

Masking is required in indoor spaces. We encourage you to spread out as much as possible and use your best judgment on masking in outdoor settings. Outdoors and fresh air are safer, but if you can’t distance, please wear your mask.

Hand Sanitation

Hand sanitizers and hand wash stations will be plentiful around the festival site. We encourage frequent hand washing and sanitizing.

Social distancing

We are changing the configuration of the vendors in the back of the meadow to increase access to the hill facing the stage for more viewing opportunities. In the campground, please be respectful of your neighbors and keep each other safe.
