On July 1, the Czech government updated the rules for organizing and visiting cultural events in the Czech Republic. From the published document, we select the most important parts concerning the visitors of the LVMF 2021 concerts. We assume that the same or very similar regime will apply from 2 to 16 October 2021, thus for the duration of the LVMF.
Entry rules to cultural events for visitors (as of 1 July 2021)
Negative test entry
To enter a cultural event, it is necessary that the visitor shows a negative POC antigen test not older than 72 hours or a negative PCR test not older than 7 days. Testing is not required for children under 6 years of age. In case the testing has been performed by the employer, the visitor shows the negative test by a written statement of the employer. In case the testing has been performed in a school facility, the visitor shows the negative test by a written statement of the school facility (for children under 18 years of age, a written statement of a legal representative).
When it is not necessary to be tested
Information on the certificates types required for a smooth entry to the cultural events and free movement within the EU can be found here.
These entry rules also apply on the LVMF 2021 Prologue in Vienna, 23 September 2021.

Dear festival fans,
despite our firm belief that the Lednice-Valtice Music Festival 2021 will take place in the standard (normal) mode, we have set up this site, which will keep you informed about the state of the epidemiological situation in connection with the Covid-19 and about the Government regulations towards the cultural events organization. Thank you in advance for paying attention to this information.
On 15 March, the sale of tickets for the capacity of the venues is launched, which will enable the festival to maintain sufficient spacing between the individual seats if necessary. Additional tickets will be released for sale according to the course of the epidemiological situation. If one of the concerts is currently sold out, thank you for returning to our website regularly in the upcoming months, as it is very likely that it will be possible to increase the capacity of the venues.
The festival will require a negative antigen / PCR test or a vaccination against Covid-19 certificate for the attendants only in the case of the Government regulations currently valid at the time of the festival.
If the Government of the Czech Republic makes the entry to cultural events conditional only with a valid vaccination or negative antigen / PCR test, it will be possible to return the purchased tickets by 31 August 2021. We believe that the regulations will be clearly set by this deadline. It will not be possible to return the tickets after this date. The festival will search for the ways to arrange the antigen testing before the concerts.
In case of the concerts cancellation due to the epidemiological situation, the entrance fee will be fully refunded. In case of the concerts rescheduling, your tickets will remain valid. If you will not be able to attend the rescheduled date, it will be possible to return the tickets. It is necessary to request a fee refund in writing at email@example.com or return the ticket in person at the place where it was purchased (it is necessary to present the original ticket) by the date specified by the festival.
Thank you for the tickets purchasing and we believe that we will manage this situation together.
