The conditions are identical to the current regulations in the Czech Republic except:
1) A negative PCR test not older than 72 hours;
2) A negative POC antigen test not older than 24 hours.
Free entrance without the need to prove oneself with a negative test applies to the vaccinated visitors (14 days after the second dose – verification needed) or who have suffered from covid-19 (180 days of immunity – verification needed), see Entry rules to cultural events for visitors.
The following regulations do not apply to people who have at least 14 days after full vaccination (14 days after the second dose in the case of a two-dose schedule, 14 days after vaccination in the case of a single-dose vaccine) or who have had covid-19 in the last 180 days. They only must fill the public health passenger form. Vaccination of third-country citizens who have completed vaccination in a non-EU country with a substance approved by the European Medicines Agency or an equivalent vaccine approved by the World Health Organization for emergency use is recognized as well. Also, these people must have issued a verifiable certificate, which is published in the list of certificates available on the web of Ministry of Health. Furthermore, it can be a vaccination from countries for which an implementing act has been concluded and they issue a certificate corresponding with the EU covid regulations. The complete conditions for the return to the Czech Republic during the covid-19 pandemic are available here.
People returning to the Czech Republic from Austria must fill the public health passenger form and also be tested with a POC antigen or PCR test if they use public transport – both in advance. After the return to the Czech Republic, these people are also obliged to be tested with a PCR test no earlier than the 5th day and no later than the 14th day after entering the territory of the Czech Republic. Until then, it is necessary to remain in self-isolation. In the case an individual transport, it is not necessary to be tested before the travelling, but it is obligatory to be tested with a PCR test no earlier than day 5 and no later than day 14 after entering the territory of the Czech Republic. Until the results are available, it is necessary to remain in self-isolation.
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).

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.
