They are experiencing symptoms common to Covid19 (high temperature, continuous cough, loss of taste or smell) 

They or anyone in their family has had symptoms in the last 14 days 

They have been contacted by the official Test Trace Isolate Service 

In all the above cases, people should isolate as necessary. 

How can you guarantee I won’t catch COVID-19 at Imp On The Green? 

We have taken all of the appropriate measures to help keep you safe and minimise the risk of infection of COVID-19. These include social distancing measures from the second you enter the festival site. We have an enhanced cleaning team employed (CLEAN SWEEP) who will continually be refreshing all toilets and fogging each building at the end of every day.  

However,  it is imperative that you follow all of the guidelines and notices that will be displayed all around the festival site to support all measures that have been put in place.  

If you require an absolute guarantee based on medical advice, please Do Not Attend. 

I don’t think I can enjoy the festival if I have to wear a mask. Can I get a refund on this basis?  

We think you will quickly forget you’re wearing a mask and still have the best time out this year. 

However, we will honour all refund requests.  Please be advised that the current time frame to receive a refund in your account is 12 weeks from request date. 

I’m coming with friends who are already in my social bubble. Can I sit with them in the arena? 

We advise that you follow the same guidelines outlined by the government regarding social bubbles.  

You say the event has social distancing guidelines in place and that you’ve taken great care to meet COVID-19 risk assessments.  How can you prove that? 

The event has been held to task by the Safety Advisory Group for the region and they have worked closely with us through the planning and implementation of the government’s safety measures. 

This is an incredibly thorough process and every detail is questioned and answered within all of our Event Management Plans, Risk Assessments,  Health & Safety and Fire Safety.  

What happens to my ticket if an area in which I live comes under local lockdown just before the festival? 

We will update this section closer to the 2022 event.  

What will happen if Lincolnshire is put into local lockdown over the weekend of the festival? 

We will seek immediate advice on all measures we are required to take if such a thing was to happen. However,  regardless of how it may seem on TV or via media platforms, such a  decision would be brought to our attention via the Safety Advisory Group long before the start of the festival.  

If I feel like I may have Covid 19 symptoms can I still turn up to be checked by your medical team?  

No. If you feel that you may have symptoms please do not travel. Stay at home & Stay safe. And keep others safe. You won’t lose your money as we will automatically replace your ticket for the next year.  

I don’t want to wear a mask if I’m standing in front of the stage. How will you enforce this rule?  

First of all, and most important of all, we take everyone’s health & safety extremely seriously. Our measures are in place to protect not only you but everyone else near you, which includes; band members, crew, security, stewards, press & photographers.  

Anyone that does not adhere to this simple but important request will be removed from the front of stage area.    

Keeping you safe at Imp On The Green

Imp On The Green is pleased to announce our Health and Safety measures and layout changes to ensure IOTG 2021 is not just an incredible day, but one that is as safe as we can make it for our audience.    

We are creating a fully outdoor, managed environment so that you can enjoy a festival in the way you love, whilst we do all we can to help keep you safe. Being a managed and monitored site doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy day to the fullest extent.  

We need to work as a team, this includes you to work alongside us while on site, and follow all guidance as you would in current everyday life. There is a level of public responsibility to remain socially distanced so that we can keep help keep everyone safe.

FIRST THINGS 1st; Nobody should attend the event if:   

They are experiencing symptoms common to Covid19 (high temperature, continuous cough, loss of taste or smell)   
They or anyone in their family has had symptoms in the last 14 days   
They have been contacted by the official Test, Trace, Isolate Service   
In all the above cases, people should isolate as necessary.   

To mitigate transmission and impact we expect everyone to remain vigilant and dedicated to the most Covid secure environment possible. Everyone must follow social distancing and hygiene measures in place throughout their stay on site. In areas where you are asked to wear a face mask, it is not a request, it is an instruction. IF you cannot follow that instruction you WILL NOT be allowed access to those areas.  

Although we will provide greatly enhanced washing facilities and hand sanitiser on site, all guests should bring:   

Hand sanitiser and cleaning materials for their camping arrangements   
Face coverings. You are required to wear these upon arrival until you are camped up, and when you use the bars, visit traders or are in the 1st few rows in front of the stages.  

At Imp On The Green you must cohere with social distancing measures and always maintain social distancing of 2m with people you do not live with.   

To avoid risks of transmission and stay as safe as possible, you should:   

Only socialise outdoors in a group of up to six people from different households, or in larger groups if everyone is exclusively from one or two households   
Limit your interaction with anyone outside the group you are attending with, even if you see other people you know.   
Wear a face covering if you cannot achieve 2m from anyone outside your group    

In any busy areas such as entrances to the arena and in the toilet blocks there will be one way systems in place in order to keep you socially distanced. We ask that you take your time, queue responsibly and give your fellow music lovers the space they need.  

Bars, Food and Retail Traders will have lines and hand sanitiser readily available, just like the supermarkets and shops so that you keep socially distanced and the same as we’ve all been used to since March. You should wear face coverings when queuing for drinks or food to keep those around you safe.  

When you arrive, you will be directed to the car park. Once out of your car, and queuing for the box office/ticket checks, we shall ask you to carry out a temperature check. If you are over 38deg we will ask you to step aside and take a drink of water and relax for 10 minutes before undertaking the check again. Once clear of the temperature check, you will then get to the box office tent, your tickets will be checked, wristbands handed to you (not put on by us as we usually do, but we will ask you to put them on in front of us)

Portaloos will be used at IOTG , additional full cleaning services will be ongoing throughout the day of individual Portaloos, toilet/shower blocks, press areas and the Festival control area. ALL these areas will also be treated with anti-viral ULV fogging (as used by the NHS) at the end of each day, each unit WILL be closed to the public for 30 mins whilst this happens.  https://vimeo.com/416865108 

You should sanitise your hands before using toilets and wash them after leaving. We recommend washing hands frequently throughout the day with soap and water as well as keeping your hands sanitised as much as possible, especially before eating. Good hand hygiene is of course key to preventing transmission of all sorts of diseases.  

Be conscious of all common ‘touch points’ such as contactless card readers, work surfaces etc. Keep personal equipment such as phones, camping equipment for your sole use. Do not share equipment outside your household group. Traders will wipe all surfaces you may need to touch.  

We ask that you PUT YOUR RUBBISH in the bins provided, DO NOT leave it for someone else to clear. Cleaning staff throughout the site shall regularly wipe down tables and picnic benches, as well as other common touch points as far as we can identify. The virus tends to deactivate quickly on porous surfaces such as paper, card and wood. Bins will be emptied as frequently as necessary and touch points wiped.
