Dear Kate Wolf Music Festival Community:
Like everyone else we have been following the daily developments and struggling with how to go forward during these stressful times. After serious consideration, much discussion and review, we have come to the following decision:
We will be postponing our 25th annual celebration of the Kate Wolf Music Festival until June 24-27, 2021.
This is not the place that we had planned, or hoped, to arrive at but the circumstances have led us here and it is with great reluctance and sadness that we are making this announcement and informing you of our decision.
It was just recently announced by our Governor, Gavin Newsom, that the 'stay at home' order may in place for up to 12 weeks, coupled with the cancellation of the Summer Olympics in later July and the advice by most all health professionals that the social distancing practice may need to be in place for many months to come has convinced us that it is no longer feasible to continue planning for the festival to take place on our original dates at the end of June, or during this calendar year. So far, we have heard back from a surprising number of acts that are part of this year's line-up that have already requested to be kept on for next year's dates.
If you have already purchased your tickets and are able to hold on to them for next year's festival they will be locked in at this year's prices. This will definitely help the festival cover expenses already outlaid for this year, plus contribute to our ability to continue. Please consider this option, as it will help assure the move to 2021 is a success. Should you choose to keep your tickets for next year you will also be in the system in case they are physically misplaced between now and then.
For those of you who need it, you also have the option to request a full refund at the following link:
We understand that this situation is, and will continue to produce hardship for all, and we are hoping everyone stays safe and healthy and that we can look forward to seeing you all again at our 25th annual festival celebration 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
