Burning Flipside 2023 COVID-19 Policy

The policy has changed since 2022, please read the entire policy.

COVID-19 continues to plague the nation and our local communities. As of the writing of this policy there are still thousands of deaths per week from this disease. So, while it is less deadly than it was a year ago, it is still a serious concern and we feel we must take action for the protection of the Burning Flipside community and, in particular, the volunteers that make Burning Flipside go. There will be two options for entry to Burning Flipside this year.

Option 1 – Proof of Vaccination

You can present proof of vaccination at gate. This proof must show that you are fully vaccinated as defined by the CDC. As of the writing of this policy that requires a full course of the original vaccination plus the Bivalent booster. For most people this will be 3 shots, but may be more depending on what regimen you have followed and your age. Types of proof of vaccination that will be accepted:

  • A CDC Vaccine card. You must present your physical vaccine card at gate. Photocopies or pictures are not accepted.
  • Two VaxYes verification cards. There will be one card for your original vaccination and a new one for your booster.
  • Other government-issued immunization records.

Option 2 – PCR Test Negative Result

You can present a negative result from a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test that was performed at most 72 hours before your arrival at Burning Flipside. AT-HOME TESTS ARE NOT SUFFICIENT! The name on the test must match the ID presented at gate. A mismatch in these two names will result in you not being admitted. We will publish any resources offering free or cheap PCR tests in the Austin area closer to the event.
