RiSE Mojave 2021 Covid-19 Policies

In an effort to ensure a safe and enjoyable event, and following all CDC and Nevada state guidelines, the following policies will help ensure your safety while at RiSE. Please take a moment to review our new Covid Safety Policies below:

Proof of vaccination or negative covid test

This year we will be requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken up to 72 hours prior to entry.

We require that your PCR or Antigen test is taken no earlier than Wednesday if you’re attending on Friday and Thursday if you’re attending Saturday. At-home testing and antibody tests will not be approved.

All those 4 and older, who have not been vaccinated, will require a negative test in order to attend the festival. For more information on where to find free testing please click the link here.

We encourage you to get tested prior to arrival. If that is not an option, on-site rapid testing will be available at the price of $59. Testing will be available from 1PM to 6PM each day and test results will be available within 15-20 minutes.

Once a negative test has been determined you will receive a wristband that states your negative status. In the event that your test comes back positive we will roll your tickets over to the 2022 event.

We will accept a physical copy or photo of your covid test or vaccination card along with matching ID (kids are not required to show ID).

Please remember that data service is unreliable on site so digital proof needs to be stored to your phone’s physical hard drive. In order to be considered “fully vaccinated” you must receive your final vaccine dose 14 days prior to the event.


Masks must be worn at the ticket gates, in lines, and while making purchases. They are not required at any other time.

Torch spacing

We’re fortunate to have an expansive venue that allows us ample room to safely experience RiSE. This year we will be adding more torches and spacing them 11 feet apart to ensure your group can gather around your own torch at a safe distance from others. We ask that you identify and claim a torch for your group by simply sliding the handle of one of your ground mats over your torch and linking the rest of your mats together using the velcro tabs on the mat.

Expanded dining areas

We are expanding the dining areas this year and adding a half dozen large shade tents to create significantly more shaded areas and dining venues. Tables will be spaced apart and arranged to safely accommodate your group at your own table, safely distanced from others.
