You can come to the festival if you have a Covid Test Certificate taken on the same day as your visit, or if you have a vaccination certificate/pass. You can get a free "Schnelltest" (Covid quick test) directly at the festival site but allow time for this. Arrive early so as to make the best use of your time at the festival.

If you already have the full two vaccinations - or the Johnson & Johnson vaccination, then bring your Vaccination pass with you. Analogue or digital passes are accepted.



Symptoms and Quarantine


If you are experiencing any symptoms such as : fever, coughing, loss of taste or smell - then for the safety of other visitors please stay at home. You are not allowed to attend the festival if you are under isolation or quarantine.



Contact tracing

When you have entered the festival site you can check in with the Luca-App. Alternatively, we can take down your details on paper.

The Luca app is available in AppStore or Playstation.


General behaviour at Main Matsuri

Everyone must follow the German AHA rules at the festival. They will be posted up for all to see at the festival site.




Talking amongst yourselves, with the guests and the exhibitors is of course an integral part of the festival. This should be possible this year. But please keep 1.5 metres apart.



Hygiene advice

To keep the Main Matsuri safe for everybody, the festival site will be regularly disinfected. You can do your bit to prevent any virus spread: Wash or disinfect your hands regularly, especially when you have handled anything.



Masks are compulsory


It is compulsory to wear a FFP2 at the festival. Medical masks are also acceptable.


Eating and drinking


Japanese food and drinks are of course an important part of Main Matsuri. And this year will be no exception. But please take note: You can only eat and drink in the specially reserved areas. Once you have finished, put on your mask again.
