In a statement issued today, Bluesfest Windsor, scheduled for two weekends in July has been cancelled in 2020.
The statement reads:
After considerable discussion with our management team and assessing the current and anticipated COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings, today, regrettably, we announce the cancellation of Bluesfest Windsor’s 2020 music festival.
“Our hope was to see a decline in the pandemic to the extent that we could push the concert into Labour Day weekend especially since we have an incredible lineup fully booked and tickets have been purchased,” stated Rob Petroni, Bluesfest Windsor President. “However, we believe it is time to look towards 2021 while we concentrate on staying safe and not put our fellow citizens at risk.”
Ticket holders will receive a full refund through Eventbrite beginning this week. Should a ticket holder experience any unnecessary delays in receiving their refund, they are advised to email firstname.lastname@example.org stating their full name, ticket number and specific issue.
Bluesfest Windsor is extremely grateful for the tremendous support we have received from fans, sponsors, community partners and media during this unprecedented situation. Please continue to follow us on social media and BluesfestWindsor.com for future announcements.
