Default Concerts and Festivals - 2021

thought it would be time to start a thread about any concerts or festivals that are happening this year.
Or not happening as we're not through Covid yet.

Thinking about it as I've been going to the Edmonton Folk Music Festival for over 30 years.
Looks like it's likely not happening this year either. not in the traditional sense.

"The chances of us having a perfectly regular folk fest are slim, says festival director Terry Wickham. To go ahead, “My belief is that a vaccine has to be widely distributed — the numbers have to fall dramatically in order for people to have confidence to gather in large numbers. Vaccination by the 30th of September will likely not fit our timeline — think of the logistical challenges — but I will keep an open mind for now.

“If the festival can’t go ahead, then I hope we can gather in smaller numbers, for example 250 or so, then I would hope we could set up some stages in communities and bring live music to people.”

https://edmontonfolkfest.org/februar...ming-concerts/


While the the festival is usually in August, they'd be working now for the lineup and signing contracts. Likely not work the risk, especially if a) you can't have large gatherings b) people might not be ready for large gatherings.

Even if the majority of adult have been vaccinated, I don't think I'd be in the headspace to hang out on a hill with 12,000 people. also considering at least a third or more under 18 who didn't get vaccinated at all.

Sled Island seems committed to having some kind of festival.

Quote:
As you can imagine, we’re facing another year filled with uncertainty. It’s incredibly hard to predict what restrictions will be in place come June, and it’s already safe to say that the 2021 festival will look a little different than it has in past years.

With that being said, it’s important you know that Sled Island is alive and well! We’re constantly striving to adapt to the ever-changing state of the world, and we’re working away to ensure that the festival returns with safe and spirited programming this summer. In one form or another, we plan to bring incredible music and art to Calgary in 2021!

Keep an eye out for more details over the coming months, and if you bought a pass to the 2020 festival and chose to transfer your purchase to the 2021 festival, you can expect an email from us shortly. Take care of yourself and each other. We hope to see you soon.

I have Jason Isbell tix for July (w/ Lucinda Williams opening), which was originally scheduled for May 2020. Yup, there's no way this show happens. It'll no doubt be pushed back again, probably for Nov/Dec. Hopefully everyone will be vaccinated by then.

Me too. Damn, was really looking forward to it last year... and again this year. Wonder if they delay further or flat out cancel.

I have friends in the States that are going to see them in July. I may just scrap this one all together and join them.

The States have a ton of concerts and festivals all planned. Including the reopening of Vegas.

yeah. if you want to see a concert this year it won't be in Canada.

the US basically decided the pandemic is done.

The Texas Rangers have no attendance restrictions for example, to start the season in MLB

I still can't wrap my head around being somewhere with 40,000 people.

I think everyone i fairly confident that the US is back to normal this summer and Canada maybe a month or two behind. That's a safe booking.
