Great South Bay Music Festival

To our GSB Family:

These past few months have been difficult, life changing, and for some, heartbreaking. Through it all, we have been given time to re-evaluate ourselves, our relationships and our priorities. In doing so, we hope you stand with us when we say that nothing is more important than the health and safety of our fans, artists, staff, vendors, loved ones, and community. During unprecedented times like these, while we extend an amount of gratitude that cannot be put into words to our frontline responders, we feel a responsibility to do our part to keep the people we care about safe.

So, with safety as our guide, The Great South Bay Music Festival will be postponed and moved in its entirety, to July 15-18, 2021, and will include all of 2020’s scheduled headliners.

We did not arrive at this decision easily. In March, we had come to the realization that having our festival on our original July dates would be unsafe, so plans were made to move the fest to September 2020. With summer upon us, and wherever large crowds are gathering, COVID-19 cases are spiking.  Considering the health risks, we now feel it is not prudent to have our fest in the fall, or any date in 2020. Through it all, it was important to us not to cancel the fest, and what we feel is one of our best lineups to date.

We are pleased to report that every one of our main headliners have confirmed that they are coming back for our new dates. The Tedeschi Trucks Band – Wheels of Soul Tour 2021 (with St. Paul & the Broken Bones and Gabe Dixon), as well as Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Rebelution, Third Eye Blind, Jon Bellion, Moe., The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Circa Survive, Cory Wong, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Aqueous, Badfish, The Weight Band, plus some new additions to be announced, as well as a healthy lineup of talented, emerging artists..

We are confident that by moving the fest, to a safer time period, we can deliver the experience that we initially planned, allowing artists and fans alike to be much more at ease hanging with their friends and a few thousand people, on the cool shore of the Great South Bay.

To our GSB fest family, we ask that you support us by holding on to your tickets for the postponed dates. As a smaller, 100% Independent Festival, we do not have the same support that the larger, corporate festivals have, and there will be no pandemic insurance payouts for us. Holding on to your ticket will help us, in no small way, to make it through to the other side.

Know that your loyalty and trust in us does not go unappreciated, so for all who will stand with us, and hold their tickets till 2021, we will add a 20% “over the ticket price” voucher that can be used for food, beverage, merchandise, or another ticket in 2021.

We understand that in these difficult times, many are struggling to get by,
and holding on to your tickets may just not be an option. If that is the case,
please see below:

The request for refunds will be available from Wednesday, June 17, 10:00am and will end at midnight on July 8, and refunds will be processed as soon as possible, following your submission.

**If you change your mind and wish to still attend the festival, log back into your account and hit the now available “cancel request” button. Once the request period closes, you will no longer be able to change the status of your refund request.

NOTE: If you did not purchase your ticket through the official Great South Bay Music Fest website, or a legitimate Front Gate Ticketing location, please note that Great South Bay Music Festival or Front Gate ticketing will not be responsible for the legitimacy of the ticket. Be wary of purchasing tickets from second or third party, or predatory sellers to ensure that your ticket is good

 

To all of our fest family and friends, thank you for being patient and staying supportive as we navigate these new waters. Take care of yourselves, and each other. We will get past this, and Great South Bay and our community will be back stronger than ever.

We love you!
The Great South Bay Music Festival Team,
