Alive 2021 COVID-19 Updates & Improvements

Alive Music Festival 2021 is happening this summer!

Alive will take place July 15-18, 2021 at Atwood Lake Park in Mineral City, OH.

Here are our current updates and upgrades we have made to make the Alive Music Festival better and safer than ever this summer. We will continue to update various items throughout the next few months, so please check our website regularly.


Main Stage Amphitheater

We are adding larger LED Walls and doubling the size of the Front of Stage area to allow for more separation between attendees. We ask parties to remain 6-feet apart from other parties while in the Amphitheater and at the festival.

NEW Woods Stage

The NEW and improved Woods Stage is now outdoors and located in a beautiful shaded and wooded area. You can bring your own lawn chairs and blankets, and enjoy all of the music and speakers from 9 am to 4 pm. We are combining the Woods Stage & Beach Stage artists to both play at this new, larger outdoor stage. Note: Chairs will not be provided, so please bring your own lawn chairs.

Better sanitation

We have added more restrooms and showers, doubled the amount of hand wash stations and hand sanitizers, and will be cleaning the restrooms and showers three times a day to keep our facilities as clean as possible.

New Marketplace Village & larger Food Court

The Marketplace in the Amphitheater will now be a multi-tent village with separate tents for the Alive Store, and all other vendors along the top of the hill. This will allow attendees to remain socially distanced.

Camping & RV sites

For those camping onsite, all of our camping and RV Site areas already provide adequate spacing between campsites.

New Ticket Buying Policy

We are requesting all attendees to purchase all tickets online prior to entering the festival. We will not be selling any tickets onsite this year.

As usual, all wristbands will be distributed as you arrive by scanning a printed ticket, or from your phone. Most Marketplace and Food Court vendors will be using card processing to reduce the amount of cash being handled at the festival.

Indoor Facilities

When entering any enclosed buildings at Atwood, we ask that you wear a mask or take one of our complimentary masks to wear when entering any enclosed buildings (i.e. Welcome Center, restrooms, showers, and the Atwood Store). This may change as we get closer to July, but we need to keep everyone safe, as well as all of the park employees, staff, and rangers. Stay tuned for updates.

Masks & Social Distancing:

As an outdoor festival at such a large park, we will not be enforcing a mask policy when outside at the festival. If you feel more comfortable, please wear a mask. We do ask parties to remain 6-feet apart from other parties while at the festival.
