Attending an Event Safely
When attending events please abide by the following as required by Government mandates.
We’d also like to remind people to keep your distance from other patrons not in your party.
Staying COVID-safe is a shared responsibility and the most important thing is that everyone stays safe and healthy.
- Register attendance
We are implementing WA Government's SafeWA and ServiceWA contact tracing system. It's a condition of entry to register your attendance at our venues. To make it easier, download the SafeWA app or Service WA app now via the WA Government website.
Alternatively you can ask a staff member and write your name down on our contact registry.
- Show proof of double vaccination
It is a condition of entry at all Perth Festival 2022 events and venues that patrons 16 years and over must demonstrate proof of a double dose COVID-19 vaccination or a medical exemption sufficient to meet WA State Government requirements. To help our staff assist your entry, please allow extra time by arriving early and bring your proof of vaccination and a valid ID or a valid medical exemption.
We appreciate your patience and understanding and thank you in advance for your respect to our hardworking staff.
Acceptable forms of vaccination proof are:
– A COVID-19 digital certificate;
– A printed copy of the certificate;
– An immunisation history statement; or
– A medical exemption
See the WA Government’s Proof of COVID-19 vaccinations page for more information.
You can download the Service WA app to easily have all your documentation on hand.
We encourage people to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Discretionary exchanges or refunds may be considered if you have been in direct contact with someone with suspected COVID-19. Please read our Terms & Conditions carefully before purchasing a ticket.
- Wear a mask
Masks are required at all public indoor settings. From Thu 31 Mar 12.01am, in line with the State Government's move to Level 1 restrictions, masks will no longer be required at outdoor venues, however, they are recommended in crowded spaces.
- Stay Home if you’re unwell
Stay home if you are unwell or have a cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath.
If you become unwell during an event, find event staff or first aid. In venues, approach a venue usher or staff member. In public spaces, locate a Perth Festival staff member who will be wearing a Perth Festival t-shirt. Click here for more info.
- Right to Refuse
Businesses have the right to refuse service and must insist that anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms leaves the venue. This applies to events held in and around performing arts venues, as well as in public event spaces managed by Perth Festival.
