Blissfest Music Organization COVID-19 Update
Like all of you, we have been monitoring the situation. The primary concern of the BMO is the safety and well-being of our members, patrons, artists, neighbors, staff and service providers. In response to the recommendations and mandates from the CDC and other governmental agencies, we are canceling or rescheduling all of our spring events and outreach activities to later in the year. We have also canceled all in-person committee and board meetings and are handling our on-going business via video/teleconferences or with email.
Knowing the future may be fluid we are continuing with our plans for the 40th Blissfest Music Festival. However, we assure you that we are also concurrently developing contingency plans for various scenarios that may exist come festival time, which is currently 4 months away. It is impossible for us to know what the future will bring. If the festival was next month, the actions we would need to take would be crystal clear. However, with 115 days in front of us, our decision today is to go forth and continue to make appropriate adjustments to our plans, policies and operating procedures as the situation evolves.
We want you to know that we care and are staying informed. We want you to take care of yourselves, wash your hands and stay home for the time being. We encourage you to stream, purchase and support our musicians, many of whom have been moving to online performances as their gigs and tours have been interrupted. You will find the current festival information on our website, and we will stay in touch with updates as they arise.
