The Tisbury Board of Selectmen has canceled the 2020 Beach Road Weekend Music Festival. Innovation Arts & Entertainment (IAE), The producers of the festival, completely support this decision. The three-day music festival was set to take place Friday, July 24 to Sunday, July 26 at Veterans Memorial Park in Vineyard Haven. Ticket buyers will receive a full refund. IAE plans to bring Beach Road Weekend back to Martha’s Vineyard in 2021 with another talented lineup.

As we fight COVID-19 together, the power of music to bring hope, foster community, and encourage mental health is more resonant than ever. With this in mind, Pickathon is excited to present A Concert A Day starting April 8, an initiative to help musicians and artist communities through the Recording Academy’s MUSICARES® organization. During this time of hardship, with so many artists unable to tour and so many people stuck at home, Pickathon is opening the vaults to premiere one full concert a day for 60 days, streaming for free on Facebook, Amazon Music’s Twitch channel, and on YouTube.

With heavy hearts, the organizers behind Campout For The Cause announce the cancellation of 2020's festival, previously set to take place in Buena Vista, CO over May 29-31.

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).
