The cancelation of a major music festival that every year draws tens of thousands of visitors to the Cavendish area was announced by organizers on April 28.
Ticket buyers will be emailed directly with information to request a refund or transfer their ticket to the 2021 festival. 2020 ticket buyers will be offered $30 in festival beach bucks (tokens) should they choose to transfer their ticket to CBMF 2021. All ticket buyers must respond by May 25 or their ticket will be automatically transferred to CBMF 2021. The purchaser of the ticket must submit for the transfer or refund, not the current ticket holder.
Those that purchased a shuttle pass from The Coach Atlantic Group will be contacted directly by Coach Atlantic Group staff to process their refund. Everyone who is booked at the Route 6 Ranch, official campground of the Cavendish Beach Music Festival, will be contacted to receive a refund or a campsite transfer offer.
The cancellation was announced after weeks of COVID-19 monitoring and consultation with officials from the provincial government and the Resort Municipality of Cavendish. The safety of the community was a primary consideration.
“We want to thank you for your patience, your optimism and the opportunities you have provided us to help bring 11 years of this amazing festival to Cavendish Beach. We are saddened by this outcome, but we know it is the right decision,” said Jeff Squires, President of Whitecap Entertainment.
“Trust that the 2021 Cavendish Beach Music Festival presented by Bell will be one of the best ones yet and we are working to bring you some of the hottest names in country music. Before you know it, we’ll be announcing the 2021 lineup,” said Squires.
