Colorado Prairie Music Festival Will Require Attendees To Sign Coronavirus Waiver

HUGO, Colo. (CBS4) -- The Colorado Prairie Music Festival will go ahead on Aug. 8 at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds in Hugo -- but people who attend will have to sign a coronavirus waiver.

"By attending the event you absolve the Colorado Prairie Music Arts and Music Council, its board, volunteers and staff of any liability should you contract COVID-19," the website states.

Organizers say all attendees are encouraged to wear a mask, practice "proper hand hygiene," and practice social distancing. The website says Lincoln County has had just four confirmed cases of coronavirus.

Singer/songwriter Aaron Watson is headlining the festival.
