Heading to Texas' capitol city for the 2021 Austin City Limits Music Festival this year? Be prepared - you'll need to show proof that you're vaccinated or a negative COVID-19 test before entering.

The festival organizers announced the new guidelines on Thursday, August 19. At least two of the major concert promotors, Live Nation and AEG Presents, have also announced new policies requiring proof of vaccine.

According to KCEN, those attending the annual ACL Music Festival in Austin will need to show proof of vaccination or a a printed copy of a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of attending the festival.

Information on masking will be available closer to the concert dates. A statement by a city of Austin spokesperson says,

"The City of Austin continues to work with organizers to ensure proper protocols, and measures are being taken to protect individuals attending events from COVID-19. We need people to determine their risk of attending any event or gathering. Under Stage 5, we strongly encourage those who are high-risk or partially/unvaccinated not to attend events as they are most vulnerable. For those who do attend events, being vaccinated and wearing a mask are the best ways to protect you, your family and your community."

As COVID cases sore, Austin is currently in Stage 5 of the area's risk-based COVID-19 guidelines. ACL is in October so just about a month and a half remain till the first weekend of shows start. There is a petition on Change.org called "CANCEL ACL FEST" trying to get Austin to cancel the event again this year.

Tickets sold out in record time this year and as of now the festival is still a go but COVID has a way of changing plans.
