Change is in the air folks…
We have enjoyed the last 5 years more than we can tell you, but unfortunately we will be cancelling the 2018 Folk Revival Festival.
In 2017 we saw a lot more competition to our event with multiple new festivals & events popping up the same weekend, and with the recent announcements of major event producers moving into Long Beach to set up operations we decided that there just isn’t room enough for a family-run community event of our size. We saw a significant decrease in attendance in 2017 and while a major backed music festival might be able to handle this temporary lull, our resources are very limited and it affected us greatly.
The support and love we have received from our fans, friends, supporters, & community in this endeavor has been overwhelming and we love you so much for that. We could NEVER have done this festival without our volunteers and amazing staff as well as our Long Beach folk family. We will hold you in our hearts forever!
While this may be the end of the Long Beach Folk Revival Festival, the folk, bluegrass, and roots music scene is still very much alive in Long Beach and we will continue to support our community of musicians however we can including keeping the monthly folk jam going. Thanks again for your continued support & we hope to see y’all sooner than later!
