Boston’s biggest music festival has announced that they have canceled their 2020 Festival due to the coronavirus pandemic that we are facing. The three-day festival was supposed to feature Iconic groups Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the return of Rage Against the Machine after a 10-year hiatus. Read the entire statement below.
“AFTER SEVERAL WEEKS OF CONSULTATION WITH LOCAL AND STATE AUTHORITIES, WE HAVE MADE THE DIFFICULT DECISION TO CANCEL BOSTON CALLING 2020 DUE TO THE ONGOING PANDEMIC.
We are heartbroken; however, the health and safety of our audience, artists, partners, vendors, first responders, and staff are of the utmost importance to us, and we felt that this was the only acceptable way forward.
To our audience, whom we value dearly, we are so sad that we will not be together with you in May. We know information regarding your tickets is extremely important to you. As such, we will be reaching out to all ticket holders in the coming weeks with a detailed outline of options available. This includes obtaining a full refund or rolling tickets to next year’s event – about which we hope to have exciting news to share soon. We thank you for your patience; please stay tuned and we will be in touch with more information in the near future.
To our valued partners, vendors, restaurants, staff and artists, we wish you all the very best during these trying times, and we look forward to collaborating with you all again soon.
Per the announcement, ticket holders will be contacted in the coming weeks about options for refunds or rollover tickets for next year’s festival.
Although the news is breaking our hearts, the number of infected cases keeps rising in the state of Massachusetts so these steps were necessary, in order to keep us all safe from this virus.
We commend the team at Boston Calling for making this hard decision. It looks like they are already planning next year’s event, and they promise to have some good news soon. We are looking forward to hearing more. Stay tuned!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO NEXT YEAR BOSTON CALLING!
