The summer party does not require masks, proof of vaccination or COVID-19 test

Milwaukee’s Summerfest does not plan to require masks, proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results to enter 2022, officials at parent company Milwaukee World Festival Inc. announced. Wednesday.

The country’s largest music festival – canceled for the first time in its 54-year history in 2020 due to the pandemic – provoked mixed reactions to put these demands in place during last year’s September festival.

By doing so last year, Summerfest followed the lead from other festivals, including Lollapalooza in Chicago, which implemented security protocols as cases began to grow again due to the delta variant. Technically, Summerfest officials also demanded that children under the age of 12 wear a mask by 2021, even though this rule was not enforced.

But for this year’s festival – which takes place from 23 to 25 June, 30 June to 2 July and 7 to 9 July – such requirements are not planned.
