INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19 MEASURES RELATED TO THE MEAKUSMA WEEKEND 2021

 
The following intends to clarify the regulations and measures currently put into place by the Belgian government in relation to the Meakusma Weekend 2021. It is Meakusma’s aim to maximise safety for the attending audience and all performers alike in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. This requires a joint effort by all people attending the weekend be it audience, performers or organisers.
 
Meakusma respects all measures, obligations, guidelines and recommendations installed by local authorities in Eupen and the Belgian government. All of these can change at any time in the run-up to or during the Meakusma Weekend. Such changes and the possible consequences of changed measures, obligations, guidelines and recommendations of the authorities over which we have no control, do not entitle the ticket holder to cancellation, compensation or reimbursement. Only in case of cancellation of the Meakusma Weekend will ticket holders be reimbursed.
 
Obligations, guidelines and recommendations of the authorities as they are in place right now, Monday June 28th 2021.
 
The below list is informative, not exhaustive and based on the information available to Meakusma on June 28th 2021. The authorities will determine the exact and/or additional provisions over the course of the following weeks and months.

 

  • People who have been fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to entry to the festival and who can prove this by means of an officially recognised (digital) certificate issued by a competent authority within the European Union, will be granted access provided they are in possession of a valid entry ticket.

 

  • People who have been partially vaccinated and have passed a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours prior to entry to the festival and who can prove this by means of an officially recognised (digital) certificate issued by a competent authority within the European Union, will be granted access provided they are in possession of a valid entry ticket. The right of entry is valid for 1, 2, 3 or 4 days, depending on the decisions of the authorities and the ticket conditions. An intermediate antigen test may be required.

 

  • People who have passed a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours before the start of their entry to the festival and who can prove this by means of an officially recognised (digital) certificate issued by a competent authority within the European Union, will be granted entry provided they are in possession of a valid entry ticket. The right of entry is valid for 1, 2, 3 or 4 days, depending on the decisions of the authorities and the ticket conditions. An intermediate antigen test may be required.

 

  • People who, on the basis of a recent earlier infection with COVID-19, can present an officially recognised (digital) certificate issued by a competent authority within the European Union, are granted entry provided they are in possession of a valid entry ticket.

 
The costs of obtaining certificates and/or tests are entirely for the weekend attendee and can never be recovered in part or in full from Meakusma.
 
Inability or unwillingness to present a valid, officially recognised (digital) certificate, as specified above, does not entitle the holder to cancellation, compensation or reimbursement, regardless of whether they are in possession of a valid entry ticket. Meakusma reserves itself the right to refuse entry to those who cannot present the above-mentioned documents as is required by the Belgian government.
 
Refusal of an intermediate antigen test does not give the right to cancellation, compensation or reimbursement, regardless of whether they are in possession of a valid entry ticket. It is each attendee’s exclusive responsibility and liability to ensure that they have the required documents and certificates with them at all times and can show them to Meakusma, and that they are aware of, and comply with, the rules in force at the weekend and campsites.
 
It is each individual visitor’s responsibility to know and comply with the most recent and applicable rules, regulations and guidelines concerning the festival and campsites at all times, as well as to check them on the Meakusma Weekend official website before each entry to the weekend: www.meakusma-festival.be.
 
Meakusma puts its trust in its audience to comply to the obligations, guidelines and recommendations indicated above. It is only when complying to all of the above that the Meakusma Weekend can take place in a safe way.
 
In the case of cancellation of the event, the ticket price, excluding service and administration fees, will be refunded to the person or company that issued the order.
