2020 Lovegrass Music Festival Postponed
It is with a heavy heart that we make this announcement.
After careful consideration and much deliberation, the conclusions drawn by the Lovegrass Music Festival Association Board of Directors and the Wilson State Park were the same, in that the 2020 Lovegrass Music Festival will be cancelled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This decision was an extremely difficult one. Please understand that it was made with the highest regard to public health and safety as well as the well-being of all the performers who have been booked, our countless donors and sponsors, volunteers, and festivalgoers. Cancelling the event at this time is in the best interest of not only public safety and the safety of all involved with the event, but also for the future of the festival itself.
It is heartbreaking right now to think of a summer without music festivals. However, we are going to get through this. We’ll lean on the music we love to make it through. We ask that you consider all the musicians out there who have had their worlds turned upside down because of this pandemic. Many of them are playing online shows and giving us hope in a time that we all need their work most. We as a board ask that you support them by viewing what they are providing and contributing to them monetarily if you can do so. Music will live on.
Lastly, we want you to know that we are currently working with all the performers that were booked for this year’s festival in hopes that we can move this lineup to the second weekend in August 2021. We’ll keep you informed of the progress.
Stay safe and healthy.
