SoundWaves'21 is presented in partnership with local Music Generation areas in conjunction with local venues. Each venue has specific COVID policies and guidelines in place which will be followed by the Atlantic Arc Masterclass & Concert Programme for each edition.

The venues are committed to promoting a healthy environment, and in doing so, they also rely on you to keep recommended self-care in mind for your safety and the safety of others. Throughout your experience, please be mindful of current Government and HSE guidelines as well as public health recommendations []:

  • If you or a member of your party has a temperature or is feeling unwell, please visit us another time. 

  • Wash your hands often, using soap and water, for a minimum of 20 seconds.

  • Help us promote social distancing by remaining at least two metres away from others who are not part of your party and do not shake hands or hug.

  • Please keep your party together to help maintain social distancing with other audience members.

  • If you must cough or sneeze, please do so into your elbow, not into your hand or into the air.

  • The wearing of face coverings is mandatory while in an enclosed space as per the Government guidelines.
