Dear NMF Family,

It is with great sadness to announce that the 2020 Nelsonville Music Festival is being postponed until 2021.

As most of you know, Ohio, like much of the country, is under a state-mandated moratorium on public gatherings. Please know that much thought and consultation went into this difficult decision, which included exploring the feasibility of postponing until later this year. Because we are a small, independent, non-profit organization, with limited resources, even without an International pandemic, we believe it is in everyone’s best interest to postpone until next year.

It is our greatest hope and belief that we will emerge from this crisis as a more conscious, caring, and connected group of people, ready and excited to continue our celebration of live music, art, community, and life itself.

For everyone who has already purchased tickets to NMF 2020, please look for emails from us, starting next week, with refund options.

Meanwhile, please keep listening to and supporting working artists by buying their records and merch! Please keep Stuart’s Opera House, the sole producer of NMF, in your thoughts as we, like all small businesses, navigate these financially difficult times. You can financially support the Nelsonville Music Festival by making a tax-deductible donation (include link) and by purchasing merchandise from our NMF online store (linked). Ticket holders will also be given the option to donate if you choose.

Thank you to all of our NMF artists, staff, volunteers, crew, vendors, and most of all, thank YOU. We couldn’t do this, we can’t do this, without you.

Please stay well and stay safe.

Tim Peacock
Founder and Executive Director
Nelsonville Music Festival
