The 2020 installment of Gainesville, Florida’s The Fest has been postponed due to the ongoing pandemic. The Fest 19 will now take place in late October of 2021.
Organizers have issued the following statement: “Fest 19 is being postponed to October 29, 30, 31, 2021. We know it has been a hard year for everyone so far, and we do not think it’s possible to safely hold a music festival anytime soon. Luckily we’ve confirmed a ton of bands for the new dates, and we got more coming still! If you bought a pass, hotel or merch; please lookout for an e-mail from Sarasvati with instructions on how to roll those over or get a refund. Please continue doing your part to push our leaders to protect people over profits, stand up for positive social change, and wear a mask! Thank you so much for your patience and we hope to see everyone at Fest 19 in 2021!
