Great South Bay Music Festival Postponed

Article Contributed by Great South Ba… | Published on Wednesday, April 7, 2021

The Great South Bay Music Festival, Long Islands largest, and longest running four-day music & arts festival, is being postponed to July of 2022.

The new dates are July 7 through 10, 2022 and will set up at its original home at Shorefront Park in Patchogue.

The decision was based on the numbing amount of uncertainty related to Covid compliance and safety, cost increases, artist discomfort and the now shortened lead time to successfully and safely produce a festival of this size.

“I find it hard to fathom that I must again announce that The Great South Bay Music Festival has been re-scheduled.  The disappointment that we feel, first losing the 2020 and now the 2021 festival to this pandemic is maddening, but the health and safety of our attendees, artists, fest workers and community is our top priority.  The very last thing we want to do is push forward based on impatience or greed.” say’s festival Producer, Jim Faith.

The Great South Bay Music Festival is pleased to report that Sunday headliners The Tedeschi Trucks Band, Wheels of Soul Tour, after cancelling their own 2021 tour plans, have re-signed on to perform at Great South Bay 2022 on July 10 and have added the legendary Los Lobos to support. Producers are expected to re-confirm most of the 2021 headliners shortly. All 2020 and 2021 tickets will be honored for GSB 2022 and no further action is necessary. Refunds will again be offered with information forthcoming.

From Blue Point Brewing Co.:

Blue Point Brewing Co. is excited to continue our synchronistic sponsorship of the GSB Music Festival in 2022.  We are all disappointed that it needs to be postponed but with the current conditions, it is the prudent move.  At Blue Point we were looking forward to releasing a new brew for the fest. I guess we will have to drink it ourselves. By the time next summer comes around everyone will be more than ready to Rock and Roll at the premier music event on the beautiful Great South Bay. Cheers
