VMF MOVES JULY 2020 MUSIC FESTIVAL TO 2021
Ventura, Ca., With regret, the Ventura Music Festival announces the postponement of its 26th music festival, set for the last two weekends in July 2020.
“We’re disappointed virus-related conditions necessitated this decision,” said VMF board president Richard Reisman. “We want supporters to know, however, that the 26th festival is deferred, not cancelled. It will take place in July 2021 and we’ll present some exciting offerings between now and then, as guidelines permit.”
“When the only certainty is uncertainty, creativity and innovation come to the fore,” said VMF Executive Director Susan Scott, “at least they have for us. Conditions permitting, we would love to present 3-4 live concerts between Fall 2020 and June 2021, with distanced seating and other preventive measures, as called for. New digital and virtual music offerings are also in the mix; as are events that can be staged outdoors and in homes and smaller venues. Conversations with key supporters will start shortly, with their ongoing input critical to our planning as we move together through the months ahead.”
