New Rules Required For Attending Sea Hear Now Music Festival In Asbury Park, New Jersey
We've seen this with other shows before this one but the official ruling on Sea.Hear.Now Festival in Asbury Park is now requiring that all attendees either show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken 3 days before attending the festival. So in other words, you better plan if you have not vaxed.
This is a BIG event. It draws over 50K people and with that kind of traffic there is a greater responsibility there. The headliners? Pearl Jam, The Smashing Pumpkins and Billy Idol were recently announced. Not too shabby.
The people organizing such a large event don't want to be responsible to creating an unsafe environment so they are confident in their decision. If you are anti-vax then at least you have an option for showing a negative COVID which is way more flexible than I thought they would be. So if you are going, you have to prepare for this in advance and get your timing right...if you are not fully vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result must be in hand within 72 hours (3 days) of first day attending Sea.Hear.Now.
The concert is sold out so that means there will be A LOT of people on the Asbury Park Beachfront on Sept. 18 and 19. There will also be a surf contest and live performances from Patti Smith, The Avett Brothers, and Patti Scialfa. Vax up or test up your choice but make sure you have a plan in place so you don't miss this stellar show!
