“Fans want to experience music again,” festival founder Jim Ethridge said in a news release. “To see the bands they love with friends in a safe, open air environment. Lost Art Music Festival provides that. We’re fans, too, and can’t wait to soak in the Georgia sunshine with an adult beverage and our favorite bands.”

Though the festival will be held outside, all COVID-19 pandemic-related health and safety measures will be followed. However, no vaccine or negative COVID test is required for entry. Also, attendees will be asked to take a brief health questionnaire prior to entry.

Good morning! Please note some Covid protocols named were updated after the latest CDC recommendations for outdoors. 

There is no vaccine verification or negative test requirement. When Lost Art Music Festival was announced in March with our initial protocols, the world looked different.

Now, sports, concerts, and other metro Atlanta events have been safely held indoors, with more than 10 times the expected 2000 attendees for our outdoor festival. 

As with our businesses, we update as new information comes to light. Our current safety efforts can be found at www.lostartmusicfest.com/safety
