Our COVID-19 policy

A (post-)pandemic world requires a lot of adaptations on hygienic measures, official rules and our own ethics to go by. We’re happy to be able to organize IRL-events again, but these will require non-stop adaptations of the festival set-up, and compliance by our visitors, professional crew and team. Please read this information carefully, so you know how we will organize and what you’ll have to agree on in order to participate in the GHX Nights.
Obviously the goal of setting the boundaries and conditions for the festival will create opportunities, freedom and a system to not only protect yourself, but also others in society.

GHX Nights follow the government COVID rules

The conditions to attend the event will depend on the COVID regulations that the Belgian government dictates at the date of the event. We will inform all the participants as soon as possible of any change in the regulations.

From March 7th, Belgium switches to code yellow. This means that a Covid Safe Ticket (CST) will no longer be required to enter the event.

But please be aware that these requirements may change if the government measures become more strict during the next few weeks. We will confirm prior to the event what the measures in Belgium are.

In case that at the date of the event a CST is necessary, participants will need to present one to enter the event. Participants will take responsibility for their ability to present a valid COVID certificate. We will not provide refunds for people not being able to present a valid COVID certificate at the date of the event. In case that a CST is needed to access the event, a verification of the name on the certificate with an ID check may be organized at the entrance.

Dancing

For now, (as of 1st of March), social dancing at evening parties will be possible without any restrictions and face masks will not be necessary. But please keep in mind that if the health measures change we might need to update the conditions.

COVID general rules

We request that you follow the general hygiene measures:

  • Wash or sanitize your hands regularly.
  • Cough or sneeze into the inside of your elbow or into a paper towel. Dispose of the papers immediately in a trash can.
  • Always follow the instructions of the organization.

The situation is in constant evolution, so be aware of the following:

  • In case of a significant rise of numbers, or more restrictions from the government, we will adjust our policy accordingly. This might include extra testing on site for all participants and crew, which might come with an extra cost. Or it could include a partial cancellation of tickets to respect maximum numbers at the event. We will reduce participants in opposite chronological order.
  • Participants from abroad can find useful information about travel possibilities and restrictions here.
  • Participants are comprehensive of changes due to Force Majeure or constant changing regulations of the Belgian National and Flemish Government. We will always follow the most recent measures, which may affect safety requirements of the event.
  • We’ll do our best to provide as much safety and peace of mind to everyone involved. Last but not least, we’ll make sure that you will be reminded of the spontaneous thrill and joy of dancing to live music.

This policy is based on the policy from The BRUX and Upside Down. Kudos to them!
