INFORMATION on our Covid-safety policy at FIRE IS GOLD

FIRE IS GOLD 2021 will be a place for dancing, kissing & hugging. No masks and no social distancing!

However, we want to ensure your safety at all times. Therefore, these rules need to be followed before entering the festival site:

WILL FIRE IS GOLD DEFINITELY PROCEED THIS YEAR?

YES! We've got the green light from federal and local Belgian authorities to make it happen. September 4 in your calendar!

REALLY?

YES!

I BOUGHT A TICKET IN 2020, BUT IT GOT CANCELED. CAN I STILL USE MY TICKET FOR THIS YEAR

YES! It will automatically be transferred to the 2021 edition.

DO I NEED A COVID CERTIFICATE TO ENTER THE FESTIVAL?

YES. Belgian citizens need to bring their ID card and install the COVIDSAFE APP on their smartphone to present their valid COVID C.S.T. certificate (Corona Safety Ticket) at the entrance of the festival site. Please do this already home and check your own certificate on the App. A paper certificate is invalid.

WAIT, DO I NEED TO BE VACCINATED TO ATTEND THE EVENT?

Let us say first of all that we as an organization believe that every visitor should have the freedom to decide whether or not to be vaccinated and of course should have had the opportunity to do so. However, there is one important condition, namely that all visitors (as well as staff members and artists) can have a valid Covid Safe Ticket scanned before entering the festival grounds. We will work with the COVIDSAFE APP or CORONA CHECK APP for those coming from the Netherlands.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

These rules need to be followed before entering the festival site:

  1. All visitors must install the COVIDSAFE APP on their mobile phone (scroll further if you are not from BE)(https://covidsafe.be/) - available for iOS (12.5) & Android (5)
  2. Login with your e-health account or it’s me app* (scroll further if you are under 18)
  3. Your proof of vaccination will automatically be available in your account
  4. Show the COVIDSAFE APP at the entrance together with your ID Please wear a mouth mask & keep your 1,5m distance during check-inPlease wear a mouth mask & keep your distance during check-in
  5. When your scan is green you can enter the festival. The take off your mask & dance the night away

You can enter the festival zone with a green scan. This green scan is obtained when you have been fully vaccinated for at least 2 weeks.

If you have troubles with Itsme or the COVIDSAFE APP, please refer to their websites. They provide multiple solutions to help you with your registration. Unfortunately, we cannot help you with that.

I LIVE IN THE NETHERLANDS; CAN I USE THE COVID SAFE APP?

You can download the CORONA CHECK APP which is the Dutch equivalent of the COVID SAFE APP https://coronacheck.nl/nl/ (note: adjust to international)

WHAT ABOUT FRANCE?

You can download the TOUSANTICOVID APP which is the French equivalent of the COVID SAFE APP https://www.gouvernement.fr/info-coronavirus/tousanticovid (note: adjust to international)

I AM NOT FULLY VACCINATED, CAN I STILL COME TO FIRE IS GOLD?

If you are not fully vaccinated, you can obtain a green scan in the COVIDSAFE APP if:

  1. You take a PCR test that must be taken within 48H.
  2. You take an Antigen test that must be taken by a pharmacy. It must be taken within 24H.
  3. Your recovery certificate (-6months).

You can find more info about the COVID Safe Ticket and app at www.covidsafe.be

You have to present the certificates on the COVIDSAFE APP or the Corona Check app. We do not accept paper versions, PDF’s or e-mails of your certificate.

HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE IF I TAKE A TEST?

The counting time starts at test day + 24H for Antigentest or testday + 48h for PCR. All overdue tests provide a red scan and will not get access to the festival. Plan your tests on time!

BUT WAIT! I AM UNDER 18?! I DON’T HAVE ITSME?

hen follow these 5 steps (minimum age of itsme app users is 18 years).

  1. download the CovidSafe app. (www.covidsafe.be)
  2. Select 'sign up with eHealth'.
  3. Now choose 'sign up via itsme'.
  4. in the next screen of itsme enter the phone number of one of your parents - your father or mother then confirms this via his or her own itsme app on his or her own phone
  5. check your own smartphone - an option to select your own name now appears.
  6. time to explore the Fire is Gold

CAN I TEST ON SITE?

No, all tests should be taken at official testing facilities, doctor, or pharmacy. you should be able to see the result through the COVIDSAFE APP or app at country of origin (set it to international)

IS THERE SOME OTHER PLACE WE CAN GET OURSELVES TESTED?

It is recommended that testing for entry is decentralized as much as possible. Where visitors can get tested can be found on the following website: https://www.mijngezondheid.belgie.be/#/ Rapid antigen tests can also be administered in more than a 1000 pharmacies. This is a serious advice to avoid that the visitors get infected during transportation to Fire is Gold.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY COVID CERTIFICATE IS VALID?

When your COVID certificate gets scanned at the entrance, it will turn red or green.
GREEN = YOU CAN ENTER TE FESTIVAL SITE
RED = YOU CAN NOT ENTER because you do not meet the applied COVID-safety rules.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO ENTER THER FESTIVAL IF I’M NOT A BELGIAN CITIZEN?

You will need to bring your ID card (or international passport) and a European Digital COVID Certificate alongside your personalized ticket to enter the festival. Info on how to get a European Digital COVID Certificate visit this website and click on the interactive map to find out how to get your hands on your European Digital COVID Certificate in your country.
We continue to recommend the COVID SAFE APP for a faster and easy access to the site.

WHAT ABOUT MY PRIVACY?

When your COVID certificate gets scanned at an event no health data is shared with the organization nor the security firm. They only get to see your full name, the validity period of your certificate and whether it meets the requirements to access the event.

WILL I HAVE TO WEAR A MASK?

You don’t have to wear the mask anymore, once you are in the festival area. However it is still mandatory to wear a mask if you are standing in line outside the festival

I BOUGHT MY TICKET FROM LAST YEAR ON TICKETSWAP?

2020 Tickets purchased on Ticketswap also remain valid for This year.
