Dear Awakened Family,
We write to you with heavy hearts today as we regret to inform you that Awakened Music Festival is officially postponed until 2021.
Our teams have been closely following the day by day updates on the status of the COVID-19 virus and its effect on large gatherings for this summer. We have kept positive with hopes that all would be well for this year's festival season, but this somewhat inevitable announcement is something we’ve been preparing for.
As many of you now know, recommendations provided by Provincial Health Official, Dr. Bonnie Henry, surrounding large event gatherings has made it clear that we cannot move forward with our plans for this summer's event. The health and safety of our staff and attendees always come first and foremost for AMF and we fully respect and support the recommendations that have been made. It breaks our hearts to know that we will not be able to share with you the incredible experiences that our team has been working so hard to create for you behind the scenes, but we know that this is not goodbye; rather it is simply “see you soon”.
Tickets for AMF 2020 will be carried forward and you may fully redeem their value within the next three (3) years. That is to say, you may choose to carry the ticket forward to either 2021, 2022, or 2023. We’re allowing you to choose in which year you would like to redeem your ticket. Redemption details are outlined on the Postponement Form page.
We also understand that everyone is dealing with the financial impacts of this crisis in their own ways and we want to support our Awakened Family in every way that we possibly can, so we are offering the option of full refunds (minus service fees) to all of those in need. We understand that these are unprecedented times for everyone, but with that said, we would like to offer something special for all of those wishing to support us during these tough times, hence we’re allowing ticketholders the opportunity to hold on to their passes for next year's event. Please review the form for further information.
We appreciate your understanding, patience and support during this incredibly tough time. Just know that we are on to something very big and exciting to help us all stay connected over the upcoming months with a fresh and unique program approach to our festival’s live streaming system. So stay tuned as we continue our mission of spreading love and light through the love of art and dance music.
Team AMF. <3
