Dear Kate Wolf Music Festival Community:
Kate Wolf Music Festival 2020/21 moved to June 23-26, 2022
Due to the current circumstances regarding the pandemic and the information that we are being provided we have reluctantly come to the decision to postpone our planned 25th anniversary festival celebration (yet again) that had been scheduled for this upcoming June 24-27, 2021, to June 23-26, 2022.
At this stage the best the Mendocino County Health Dept. can offer us is a wait and see approach that can take all the way until early to mid June to provide any solid details or specific guidelines that we may need to address. A concern on their part is to see if there will be another spike after the Memorial Day Holiday weekend, as there was last year, which puts us in an untenable situation to try and plan an event that is still faced with unknown parameters and the possibility of having the plug pulled on it just prior to the festival dates.
With all of these uncertainties still swirling around and a clamor already by many other events to look for alternative dates in the limited available Fall window we have decided to postpone our 25th anniversary festival celebration until June 23-26, 2022. Hopefully this will also allow for things to normalize appreciably and provide the type of experience we have all come to love and are sorely missing.
We have also made the decision that the 2022 Kate Wolf Music Festival will be our Farewell. As sad as that sounds to many, including ourselves, those of us that have been putting this together for all these years have come to the realization that we are not getting any younger (big surprise!) and these current events have focused us on wanting to be able to provide a quality ending and closure to this event we all love on terms of our own choosing, as much as possible. We have decided to put our focus into making next year’s event be the celebration we have been waiting to have and a fitting farewell for the festival as a whole.
We fully anticipate that next year’s line-up will be what you have always come to expect at the Kate Wolf Music Festival, and may also include some of those acts that were scheduled for KWMF 2020 and 2021.
Kate Wolf Music Festival Ticket Options
Those of you that have continued to hold your tickets over from last year’s planned event (for which we thank you) and those of you who have recently purchased tickets will have options to consider going forward. We will continue to honor all 2020 and 2021 tickets for 2022. These will be able to be printed out at home, as per usual, and your names and tickets will continue to be stored in the system if you would prefer to pick them up at will call on the festival weekend.
Tickets will continue to be available for purchase at the current 2020 price until March 15, at which point there will be a price increase, followed by an additional price increase in early December during our traditional Holiday pricing period.
REFUNDS: If your preference is to receive a refund, we will continue to provide those upon request until January 1, 2022. Our usual early December announcement will let you know who will be performing at KWMF 2022 so you can make your decision then. Of course, our goal is to bring you the best show we can.
2) To obtain a refund please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, state the name that the tickets were purchased under and the ticket order confirmation number that you received when the order was placed, or a photo copy of the tickets themselves. Please allow for up to a week to have it processed and credited back to the same credit card that you made the purchase with.
If you are able to hold your tickets until next year that will definitely help the festival as a great deal of work and expense has already gone into this year’s event that will not be able to be recouped.
We understand that this situation is difficult and will continue to produce hardship for all, and we are hoping everyone stays safe and healthy and that we can all look forward to seeing each other again at our 25th Annual Festival Celebration - Farewell next year. Thanks for all of your years of support for our festival, community, and the live music experience.
All the best,
Kate Wolf Music Festival
