Summerset Benefit Concert June 2020 Announcement

The team at Summerset and Red Door Events has worked tirelessly to bring Summerset Music & Arts Festival to our community this summer. Unfortunately, like other major festivals, Summerset 2020 was interrupted due to COVID-19 and the resulting pandemic. Our team has worked hard to solve problems and discover creative solutions, and we pivoted to proudly present the Summerset Benefit Concert – Canada’s first Drive-In music festival in support of BC musicians. 
Due to new restrictions introduced in May 2020 on gatherings of events with more than 50 vehicles, and recent statements from the Provincial Health Office expressing the extension of these restrictions for the ‘coming months,’ we are left without options. Therefore, we sadly must announce the cancellation of the Summerset Benefit Concert, and the postponement of Summerset Music & Arts Festival to August 27 – 29, 2021. We tried to make this work however, health, safety and regulatory compliance is and must remain our top priority. 
 
The entire team at Summerset and Red Door Events would like to thank you for your support and encouragement during this time. We would also like to thank the many sponsors, suppliers, contractors, agents and artists who expressed immediate, strong support and commitment to this unique opportunity. 
 
The Red Door Events team is exploring ways to operate a concert series in a safe way to keep live music alive in BC this year. We look forward to celebrating music and community together and invite you to join our mailing list so you can be the first to know of other events we have planned in the near future.
