COVID-19 Health Policy & Entry Requirements

Dear Imaginers,

We are so excited to finally be getting back together again this September! With less than 30 days to go we want to share some important updates regarding your health and safety and new entry requirements for Imagine Festival.

Imagine is working closely with the City of Chattahoochee Hills, leading public safety experts, and following all recommended CDC and WHO guidelines at the time of the festival. Imagine is dedicated to a safe experience for our fans, artists, and staff. 

As Imagine Festival approaches, we will continue to update patrons with the important information, including any changes to policies and procedures you need to know before entering the festival. Updates will be shared on the festival website, through our social media channels and via our email list.


The safety of our patrons and staff is our number one priority. As such, a negative COVID-19 test result OR a full COVID-19 vaccination will be required to attend Imagine Music Festival 2021. With this in mind, we strongly suggest getting vaccinated before attending Imagine 2021.

There is still time to get vaccinated and be protected before you come to Imagine. The last day to receive the second shot of Moderna or Pfizer, or a single dose of Johnson & Johnson is Friday, September 3rd. If you need help finding a vaccine distributor near you, please visit

For patrons who are not fully vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 72 hours (3 days) of entering Bouckaert Farm. Our team requests that guests follow CDC guidelines for mask wearing.


Imagine 2021 Entry Procedures:

  1. Comply with the Imaginer Health Pledge
  2. Complete the Imagine Health Verification as detailed below and receive a Health Check Wristband
  3. Bring your festival wristband and a mask

Imaginer Health Pledge:

We ask that you not attend if any of the following is true for you or anyone in your party:

  1. Within 14 days before attending the festival you have tested positive, or been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
  2. Within 48 hours prior to attending the festival, you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., a fever of 100.4 or higher, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking muscle pain/achiness, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, nasal congestion, runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, or any other symptoms associated with COVID-19 identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.)
  3. Within 14 days prior to attending the festival you have traveled to any international territory identified by federal or applicable state or local governments as being subject to travel or quarantine advisories due to COVID-19.

Imagine Health Verification:

  • Present a valid ID AND proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test from  72 hours before the start of the festival to any Health Check Tent and receive a Health Check Wristband.  The Health Check Wristband will allow entry into Imagine Festival along with your festival wristband for the duration of the festival.  Both a festival wristband AND Health Check Wristband are required to gain entry into Imagine.

Positive Test Protocol

  • Should someone test positive on site they will be given a second (complimentary) test for confirmation.  Medical staff will notify the individual of their test status, remove their festival wristband, and provide them a pre-printed card with instructions on how to request a refund for their ticket. 
  • Patrons who test positive are not allowed to remain on site and will be asked to collect their belongings and exit the site immediately.

Based on the latest advice from the CDC, Imagine recommends wearing masks in any spaces where you cannot practice social distancing, regardless of vaccination status. In addition, Imagine will have increased hand sanitizer stations on site, and cleaning crews will do frequent cleanings in high touch areas.
