Harvest Music Festival is cancelling Saturday night music programming, based on the current forecast for very high winds and heavy rain, and NB EMO’s advice for New Brunswickers to stay home and out of the storm tomorrow.
We are making this decision with heavy hearts and deep appreciation for our artists, our incredible audiences, loyal volunteers and valued suppliers and sponsors. The safety of our people is our greatest concern. We feel this is the most responsible decision given the information we have today.
We appreciate the support our audiences have shown us in the last few days. We’ve heard from a lot of you online and in person, sharing support and encouragement as we’ve watched the storm forecasts roll in.
All Friday shows will go ahead as planned. Please come out tonight and enjoy the music and see your friends. Make the most of the shows and the street experience – the weather will be fine.
All official Harvest programming on Saturday is cancelled. This means free shows, and ticketed shows in the Blues Tent, Barracks, Mojo Tent, and playhouse will not go ahead. We are working on next steps with respect to your tickets and passes and will have an update on this next week. We appreciate your patience as we sort out these details.
To our ultimate passholders, some of whom have supported Harvest for every one of our last 33 years of festivals. Thank you for your commitment and support over the years. We appreciate you very much. You have helped the festival survive and thrive over many decades and we are counting on this support as we move forward.
Thank you once again to our sponsors, artists, audiences, volunteers and service providers. It’s been an incredible festival so far – have a great time tonight and stay safe tomorrow. We’ll see you tonight AND we’ll see you next September.
