Secret Stages is working very hard to make sure our tenth annual event is a safe one. Regulations and recommendations with regard to Covid-19 safety protocol are being updated regularly. Secret Stages is monitoring the advice coming from the CDC, The State of Alabama, Jefferson County, and The City of Birmingham. Secret Stages will comply with any and all mandates ordered by any government entity. Below are details on what to expect when attending Secret Stages 2021.
Masks — Fully vaccinated people will not be required to wear a mask at any area within the Secret Stages footprint. Unvaccinated people will need to wear masks. Secret Stages will have masks available on site. Attendees will be on the honor system when it comes to mask wearing. Secret Stages staff will wear masks unless they have proof of vaccination.
Social Distancing — Secret Stages will not be using the “pod” format that many events have utilized recently. We ask our attendees to respect each other and whenever possible maintain a safe distance from others who are not members of your household. Please be mindful of situations like drink lines, food lines, bathroom lines, and crowding near stages.
Sanitation — Secret Stages will have hand sanitizer available throughout the festival footprint. We will have staff regularly wiping down surfaces with appropriate sanitizing agents.
Secret Stages understands there are many opinions among the public as to what Covid-19 safety guidelines are reasonable. Our aim is to protect our patrons and staff and to put on an event where everyone involved feels safe. As more information emerges the above guidelines may change. We ask that everyone attending Secret Stages come to the event with the intention of following our requests and respecting the safety of those around you.
