MusicFest 2020 Postponed

Posted on

To our MusicFest Family

There is no easy way to say this – so here goes – it is with deep regret we must postpone MusicFest 2020 due to the global pandemic. We are heartbroken.

We cannot risk being an event where Covid-19 has an opportunity to spread within our community as we are sure, you would all agree. The travel and human exchange involved in putting on a Festival the size and scope of MusicFest make it impossible for us to carry on for the time being. It’s simply too risky for all of us.

This is a temporary measure. We are hopeful that by this time next year we will all be able to say its game on for MusicFest and everything else and with some luck, many of the same artists will be available as well. Hopefully, you will remain as excited and supportive as we are about the next version of Vancouver Island MusicFest.

An email will go out soon to everyone who has purchased tickets and camping for this year in regards to how we will be handling that. Please wait for this communication before contacting us regarding donations and refunds. It will come in the next few days.

Meanwhile, to our 1300 Volunteers, our sponsors, our performers, our community and our ticket buyers, we want to thank you so much for your continued support of MusicFest.

On a personal note to our volunteers and sponsors, we will miss the setup days in particular and our opening day as we get to watch you all pull onto the site and become what we all know as Vancouver Island MusicFest.

To quote a famous actor, “We’ll be back!”

Love to you and your families from all of us. Stay safe and smart – we will get through this together and are so grateful for each and everyone of you.

With more communications to come from us, a very heartfelt thank you from your MusicFest Production team,

Doug, Marcy, Cresslynn, Susan and Deb
