COVID safety information for artists

All artists must show proof of vaccination before performing on stage at the Festival. If you are experiencing any symptoms, please let us know and stay home. In order to reduce the spread of Covid19, we encourage artists to get tested regularly leading up to and during the festival. If you receive a positive test or feel unwell, please do not come to the festival. Washington State Department of Health states anyone who tests positive must self-isolate for at least 5 days. Call the programming hotline as soon as you are able and let us know you will not be able to make your performance due to a positive test result. Northwest Folklife will not penalize bands for last minute cancellations due to positive cases or exposure, and it will not impact your ability to perform at future events with Northwest Folklife.
