FAQ ENTRANCE PROTOCOL – CORONACHECK (Situation may change, date 01-07-21)
Do I need to get tested to get access to the festival?Yes, it’s obligated by the Dutch government that you get tested at a Testing for Entry test location before visiting a festival. Only a negative test result, official proof of recovery or vaccination passport will give you access to the festival.
How does testing for access work?
We ask all our visitors to take a test at a maximum of 24 hours in advance to show you don’t have COVID-19. You can make an appointment yourself via Testing for Entry at www.testenvoortoegang.nl. When you receive your result, you can create a QR-code within the Corona Check app which will be scanned at the entrance of the festival.
How long in advance do I need to get tested?
Your test result is valid for a maximum of 24 hours from the moment you get tested. Please keep this in mind for the time you expect to arrive at the festival. Below you can find a time schedule that shows you until what time you can enter the festival based on the day and time you were tested.
What if I arrive too late and the 24-hour time span has passed which makes my test result invalid?
When you arrive past the 24-hour result limit, your test result will be invalid and access to the festival will be denied. You’re responsible yourself to come on time before the time limit of your test result ends. So plan your time of testing and arrival at the festival carefully. Please keep in mind that it can be busy at the entrance during peak hours.
When will I receive the result of my test?
At Testing for Entry via www.testenvoortoegang.nl you can schedule your testing appointment. At this point, they say you will receive your result after one hour. Please note: this can change, depending on how busy it is, so please keep an eye on the website if this changes. Also please be aware this is an external organization, and we are not responsible for the test results. If you don’t receive your result or have any other problems, please contact their customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org or via 088-7770809 (Monday till Sunday 08:00 – 20:00).
What can I expect at the entrance of the festival?
Upon entering the festival site, your test result will be scanned via the QR-code in the Corona Check app. If you don’t have a smartphone, make sure your QR-code is printed out. At the same time we will do an ID check so make sure you have a valid ID with you. Until this time, we’ll also ask you to wear a face mask. Once you’ve showed your negative test result, you can take the face mask off and continue to ticket scan and visitation. From that moment on, there will be no additional COVID measurements.
