Bat Fest has been postponed to 2021. Read the full statement from the festival owners below:
Dear Bat Fest Patrons and Roadway Productions fans,
We regret to inform you that Bat Fest 2020 has been cancelled. Given the current factors at play, we didn’t see a path forward to producing the festival you all know and love. Bat Fest 2021 will take place on August 28, 2021.
Beginning July 3rd, all customers who purchased festival tickets through the Bat Fest ticketing page can either transfer their ticket to next year’s festival or request a refund. All Bands have agreed to reschedule to 2021 except for Koe Wetzel who says they are not sure what they will be doing that far out, but it is a possibility. If Koe Wetzel does not agree to perform in 2021, they will be replaced on the lineup.
We are so sorry to bring you this sad news, but we must put the health of our community first and we know you understand. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you in August 2021!
