Dear BluesFest Fans,
There are so many reasons to celebrate BluesFest 2020, including 20 years of great music and your unparalleled support over the years!
However, there is one big reason to postpone our 20th anniversary celebration — your safety.
Of course we’ve been monitoring the coronavirus situation since it all started, paying close attention to how the world is handling music festivals. Given the fact that social distancing will most likely still be in place, it makes the most sense to us to hold off on this year’s festival.
The guidelines for outdoor festivals at this point are very stringent and could infringe upon your ability to really enjoy yourselves and for us to provide a completely safe environment for all concerned — attendees and volunteers.
The plan is to keep the 2020 lineup for the dates in 2021, which will be Aug. 13-15, 2021.
All 2020 tickets will be honored for the 2021 festival.
We hope you will join us when we kick out the jams for our 20th annual Heritage Music BluesFest! We absolutely can’t wait to celebrate with you —our dedicated fans who have become like family. See you in 2021!
Bruce Wheeler & family
