Following the lead of both Live Nation and AEG, organizers of next month's Furnace Fest have announced that all attendees must either show proof of a Covid-19 vaccination or negative test. A statement festival can be read below.

Furnace Fest is scheduled to take place September 24-26 at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, AL.

Covid-19 update: As a result of the increase in Covid-19 cases, we are majorly and proactively stepping up our precautions.

The safety of our fans and team is our top priority. As such, a negative COVID-19 test or proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required to attend Furnace Fest 2021. Even though the festival is a 100% outdoor event, we highly encourage all our friends to get fully vaccinated at least two weeks before the fest.

A negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 72 hours (3 days) of first entering Furnace Fest for fans who are not fully vaccinated. The two-fold aim of these measures is to keep everyone safe and our friends in business. We have an opportunity to showcase the neighborliness, thoughtfulness, and community for which Birmingham is famous.

Read on for additional notes: Negative Covid-19 tests will be required for all non-vaccinated fans at Furnace Fest and all pre/after parties. Proof of Covid-19 vaccinations will be required at Furnace Fest events in the form of a vaccination card, a photocopy of your vaccination card, or an electronic picture of your vaccination card on your phone. All the above will remain the same for indoor pre/after-parties, except we require masks to be worn at all times while inside. Furnace Fest will have masks on-site but ask you to please also bring your own. Hand sanitizer stations will be positioned throughout the venue grounds. Furnace Fest volunteers and staff will be equipped with appropriate sanitizer to wipe down often touched surfaces.

See you in 39 days!

Racist policy. People of color are more likely to be unvaccinated, this excludes them from attending, you nazi's might as well just say Furnace Fest is WHITES ONLY!!!


anonymous 107 days ago

^^^ This Fest is in Alabama. Racism in inherently implied.


anonymous 107 days ago

^^^ sounds pretty racist of you to say that


anonymous 107 days ago

^^^^^ Alabamans aren't a race


anonymous 107 days ago

anonymous 107 days ago

The Taliban is stoked.


anonymous 107 days ago

Turns out hardcore kids are liberal pussies no matter where they live. it's a f*cking shame though because they were raised better. One more reason for their parents and communities to be ashamed and embarrassed.

Jim Crowe 2.0. Punk rock means freedom.


anonymous 107 days ago

requiring everyone to be vaccinated AND wear a mask will never ever make sense.


anonymous 107 days ago

Loving the Covid News!💯 🔥 🔥 💯


anonymous 107 days ago

What a shit show


anonymous 107 days ago

Lol @ bigots trying to appropriate Jim crow. Same type of garbage from the "ALL LIVES MATTER" or "say Ashley babits name" crowd. You all can eat shit and die


anonymous 107 days ago

^i agree with everything this person said. Rednecks can die painfully.


anonymous 107 days ago

My fat wife had Covid and survived. Believe all women!

Dudes that punch drywall and got fired from their jobs for flippant use of racial slurs are reading this article and are punching more drywall and blasting N's till they're hoarse


anonymous 107 days ago

Yo. Straight up. I love jokes. I'm a huge piece of shit myself. But what a time to be alive gahhhhhdamn


anonymous 107 days ago

No ones going


anonymous 107 days ago

Wives who know how to use a hammer and nails because they have to keep fixing the bedroom door frames are not stoked


anonymous 107 days ago

Considering the entire state is virtually unvaccinated everyone they come into contact with outside of the venue during those 3 days would be potential to either get it or give it. The negative test becomes useless at that point if you catch it the after night 1 then hit rests, hotels, gas stations, stores, etc then they attend for 2 more days. Even worse is a shit load of people coming from all over brings a massive wave to the unvaccinated city. I'm just scratching my head because this attempt to avert legal liability is useless lol.


anonymous 107 days ago

Rick ta life says. Stop Sadball from spreading the Covid reality


anonymous 107 days ago

Will Nyhc king rtl. Bring his horse ?


anonymous 107 days ago

Todd Jones here. Maybe they could do a vaccine pit and an anti-vaccine pit with a plexiglass partition. Just tossing out ideas. Before I go, I need to stress that nobody in either pit will be one of us.

This person gets it.

Hi I'm Todd Jones. I once showed up to a venue which had hardcore shows & refused to play it because the soundsystem wasn't up to par with my standards. I also came back to play some songs on the new Terror LP because no one wants to do a band with me & I'm not back in Terror so the appearance is happy medium. Besides that the more I do with them the more I'll quit on them so they don't fire me like last time.


easyhateoven 107 days ago

gotta make sure those rednecks in alabama are safe


anonymous 107 days ago

^ Try vice versa as those rednecks are the danger. You do realize that whoever attends this fest will be negative for covid or fully vaxed if they wanna get in right? I think fully vaxed should test negative too as there is a slight chance you can be fully vaxed & still get covid.

"commies." - someone that hasn't read a scrap of Marxist theory


anonymous 107 days ago

requiring everyone to be vaccinated AND wear a mask will never ever make sense. ^ It does to women and self loathing beta males. Remember, they believe that you can have a cock AND be a genuine female. Back in the day we'd just drown these people or lock them away, and society was far better off for it.


anonymous 107 days ago

Yeah and back in the day people got gassed by nazis, you should leave that toxic, war mongering, tap out t shirt wearing, Kyle dry wall punching ass attitude back in the past where it belongs you f*cking scumbag.


anonymous 107 days ago

Buncha flyover state Subway employees weighing in on their Facebook fed concepts of science. Start breathing through a straw now so you can get a head start on those ventilator vibes, you knuckledraggers.


anonymous 106 days ago

but my whitesss i mean rightttsss. god all of you would have never made it pre 1960 you crybabies. 100% this


anonymous 106 days ago

"Believe or not you f*cking pizza bagel loving Turnstile listening edge Lords your rights are all you have in this life. Now go listen to Citizen and que the irony about crybabies and your rights" I'm not even sure who you're supposed to be insulting here. Like, pizza bagels.... is that a shot at hipsters or something? Because pizza bagels.... not what you're looking for


anonymous 106 days ago

the masks should be going into the furnaces at furnace fest, am I right??? just assuming there are furnaces


anonymous 106 days ago

LOL what a time to be alive. pansies. the lot of ya


anonymous 106 days ago

The Taliban's political agenda: "Abortion is banned, Gay marriage outlawed, Rejection of science, No vaccines, No separation of church and state, Religion taught in schools" And all the liberal gays here moaning about how "right wing and intolerant" the U.S is. Little pussies. We wish America was even 1/1000th right wing, but instead it's flaming liberal with masked up beta males with Grover arms demanding daddy government pump them full of fluid.


anonymous 106 days ago

The description you described of the taliban literally sounds like a GOP wet dream. I can picture Josh Hawley and all those cucks salivating at that wish list


anonymous 106 days ago

"We wish America was even 1/1000th right wing" You seem genuinely unhappy. That entire comment couldn't possibly come from someone who is pleasant to be around. Move to a country that fits the bill, if you're so displeased with this place. Poland, Turkey, Brazil, Hungary. Go ahead and try Afghanistan. Or log off and go for a walk.

Poland, Turkey, Brazil, Hungary. Go ahead and try Afghanistan. Or log off and go for a walk. ^ I think this guy is trying to tell you that every day liberals moan about how "un-liberal" America is, when in fact it's so liberal that you're bending over and demanding government tyranny. I mean, where else in the world can women cover themselves in period blood and run about the streets celebrating abortion?


anonymous 106 days ago

You suck and are part of the problem^


anonymous 106 days ago

Left or right. Doesn't matter. If you support big government you're a piece of shit.


anonymous 105 days ago

Aint no one from Alabama going anyhow


anonymous 102 days ago

Yeah. Because you totally can't have covid with the vaccine right? f*cking autistic soy boys
