BAF / TCIFs – Update and correction

Hey all – I know many of you have been waiting patiently for more information as the previous post about the combined festivals promised a much smaller-than-usual submission process.
Some updates on that front :

After our initial announcement, we began the process by reaching out to all groups that were invited to perform in the canceled festival in 2020.

Sadly, as things developed with the Bakken, the time we have for performances each day and number of days we have for performances was even smaller than anticipated and – in the end – we ended up needing to make cuts even from the list of groups that we had contacted to check interest and availability from 2020

Leaving no space for a submission process.
I’m sorry to bring the bad news for groups that were waiting to submit and I apologize for the premature announcement during a developing plan for this year

Work continues as we firm up both the final arrangements with the venue and a final version of the lineup that represents both festivals – we hope to send emails to groups very soon and post the lineup publicly very soon after that.

Stay tuned for more details and information as we prepare for our return to live, in-person shows this summer
Thank you, as always, for your understanding and support
