Festival attendees will be notified immediately via email of any change to the below policies.

We’re so excited to gather in-person this year with our incredible On Air Fest community of storytellers, listeners, and audio enthusiasts. It’s important to us that we are able to convene as safely as possible, keeping the health of our festival attendees, talent, and staff in mind.

Therefore, On Air Fest 2022 will require that all attendees be vaccinated against COVID-19.

All vaccinations must be completed by 2/10/22—at least two weeks before the festival. For vaccinations that require two rounds (i.e. Moderna, Pfizer), you must have completed both rounds of the vaccine.

Ahead of the festival, all attendees will be required to have their vaccination status verified via CrowdPass. The app will send you a screening form. After you complete the form, the app will generate a unique QR code that festival staff will scan when you enter the event. After vaccination status has been verified, attendees will be given wristbands which will allow them to come and go freely throughout the day’s programming. If you do not complete the Crowd Pass application, you will not be allowed to enter the festival.

In addition, all attendees will need to carry Photo ID and an additional proof of vaccination in case of any issues, which can be verified by on-site workers and medical professionals. You are welcome to carry a hard copy (CDC card) or a digital copy (i.e. Excelsior pass).

All festival attendees are also strongly encouraged to complete their booster vaccination, provided they are eligible to do so. This event will be run in accordance with CDC and NYS guidelines—at this time, booster vaccinations will not be required, however, this is subject to change based on city and state guidelines at the time of the event.

Masking &

Masks will be recommended in public spaces at the Wythe Hotel, such as the lobby and the elevators, but masking is not required for this event. For those who choose to mask, festival staff will have masks and gloves available on site for attendees at the Check-In area.

The event will have sanitizer available throughout event spaces and each event venue will have easy access to sinks and soap for handwashing.

In addition to providing PPE and sanitizing access for attendees and vendors, the event will have a dedicated cleaning team circulating throughout the event. Spaces and furniture such as tables and chairs will be frequently cleaned during breaks in programming. Should there be any health issues on site, we will have a qualified medical professional on hand to assist, rapid test, and support.

Event &

If we are unable to hold the event Feb 24-26, all ticket purchases will be refunded to the original method of payment.
