At the Back Road Music Festival our main priority is to provide a safe experience for our entire Back Road family.
We continue to use recommendations from the CDC and health officials to guide our safety measures. This includes expanding the festival footprint to allow for social distancing, placing sanitation stations throughout the grounds as well as increasing food vendors and restrooms.
Based on the latest updates from the CDC, masks should continue to be worn at large outdoor events for individuals who are both vaccinated and unvaccinated while also maintaining 6 feet of social distancing. Thus, we strongly recommend unvaccinated attendees wear a mask at all times. If anyone (vaccinated or unvaccinated) has been experiencing COVID symptoms, we ask that they stay home.
Festival-goers must follow all posted instructions while on site. By attending The Back Road Music Festival, all festival attendees & volunteers voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to Covid-19, as well as other infectious and/or communicable diseases, viruses, bacteria, or illnesses, while also agreeing to all other terms set forth at www.tbrmf.com and posted at all entrances.
