Festivals

After a lot of careful thought, research and discussion, Johnny, William and the Rooster Walk board of directors have made the very difficult decision to postpone RW12 until Memorial Day weekend of next year (May 27-30, 2021). We are heartbroken that we won’t get to see you at Pop’s Farm this spring, but ultimately the health and safety of all involved with the festival is our top priority.

Summer Camp Music Festival has announced the reschedule of the 20th year anniversary to take place August 21-23, 2020 at Three Sisters Park, Chillicothe, IL. 

A Statement from Summer Camp Directors:

“Summer Camp Family,

We hope that you are all staying healthy during this very difficult time.

In lieu of WinterWonderGrass Tahoe—which was set to take place this weekend and has since been postponed to April 2021 with the original lineup in tact—the producers of WinterWonderGrass are excited to announce WWG TV, set to launch this coming Friday, March 27th at 6:00 pm MT (5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm ET). Viewers can tune into the livestream via the festival's official Facebook page.

Festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents has released the following update about their 2020 music festivals:

There are no pre-existing guidelines for what festivals should be doing during this unprecedented time.  Like the rest of the music industry, we continue to assess new information and make the best-educated decisions possible.  We know you have been anxious for updates from us and we are at a point where we can answer many of your questions about how each of our festivals may be affected by COVID-19. 

The California Roots Music & Arts Festival has moved their dates for this year’s event to October 9-11, 2020 at the Monterey County Fair and Event Center. The lineup will remain 99% intact and will feature the biggest names in reggae, hip hop, and roots music.
 

We are incredibly saddened to share that Old Settler's Music Festival will be postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. Caldwell County officials have made the tough but right decision to prohibit public gatherings of over 500 people at this time in order to protect the health of its citizens which means that we must postpone the festival. The well-being of Old Settler’s community of loyal festgoers, musical artists, sponsors, volunteers and vendors is truly our first priority.

Dear Festival Friends,

It is with heavy hearts and deep regret that we sadly announce the cancellation of Suwannee Spring Reunion 2020 which was to be held at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL, March 19-22. Please read the following note from the Festival Director:

Firstly, we want to thank you for your patience. We know how passionate each and every one of you are about the Skull & Roses experience. We are too, and it’s what makes these challenging times that much tougher. Wednesday night, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California public health officials issued an updated policy on gatherings to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19. The state’s public health experts determined that gatherings should be postponed or canceled across the state until at least the end of March. Non-essential gatherings must be limited to no more than 250 people. Even though our event falls just a couple days beyond the end of March, we cannot make the assumption that this mandate will be cleared by then.

With less than two months until the kickoff of the incredible spring festival season from Danny Wimmer Presents, the independent festival producer has announced additional onsite entertainment and unique food offerings for the second year of Epicenter, May 1, 2 and 3 at its new home at Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC.

While thankfulness is inherent to a Deadhead’s makeup, oftentimes, we don’t stop and fully let our gratitude overwhelm us. The Skull & Roses Music Festival in Ventura, California this April 2nd-5th will easily remedy that. Offering a most wonderful setting in a most sacred spot, Skull & Roses provides the perfect opportunity to allow our appreciation to soar. I sense the familiar thrill rise within me as I digest this year's lineup— Billy & the Kids, Oteil & Friends, Jeff Chimenti, Steve Kimock, and George Porter Jr.
