When Lollapalooza India kicks off in Mumbai next year, proof of vaccination will be required.
Vaccination estimates put India at around 62.5% as of August 2022. The venue for the Mumbai concert hasn’t been announced yet, but there are guidelines in place for the Maharasthra region in India – where the city of Mumbai is located. Lollapalooza India will only be open and accessible for people who are double vaccinated against COVID-19.
“You may be asked to show the documentary proof/certificate of your COVID-19 double vaccination at the venue,” the Lolla India website guidelines read. “You agree to assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness, or a bacteria, virus, or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness.”
Anyone who isn’t prepared to show their COVID-19 vaccination proof may not be allowed into the Lollapalooza India venue. “The venue provider and governing authorities reserve the right to exclude any user from the venue if there are sufficient grounds to believe so for failure to abide by protocols. You agree to exit without protest or refund.”
Masks will also be mandatory while attending the festival, with social distancing norms in place. Lollapalooza India is produced by Perry Farrell, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, C3 Presents, and BookMyShow. It’s the eighth country to host the festival, with other Lollapalooza iterations in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Germany, France, and Sweden.
Meanwhile, C3 Presents just struck a deal with the city of Chicago to keep Lollapalooza in the city for ten more years. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced the news on the final day of Lollapalooza 2023 following an eventful show. Lightfoot called festival organizers C3 Presents “phenomenal partners” and pointed out their work funding arts programming in Chicago Public Schools and their collaboration with the local non-profit, After School Matters.
