Although there is nothing more we’d rather do than host you all for the first annual Kaw River Roots Festival this August, alas we’ll have to wait another year.
After careful consideration with local health officials, we will regrettably be postponing the Kaw River Roots Festival until 8/27-8/28 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Everyone remembers their first time. Therefore we’ll wait to ensure that the first Kaw River Roots will be as memorable and pleasurable as possible. Under current circumstances we are just not capable of delivering the type of experience that we have envisioned for this event.
To all of you who purchased tickets already, Thank You. Tickets for 2020 will be honored for the rescheduled dates of 8/27-28 2021. If you are unable to attend the new dates you may request a refund (insert link) in the next 30 days or donate your ticket to the festival.
As of now, the current lineup has not changed. Although the artists are subject to change. That being said, we are anticipating the same lineup (including additions), as well as a few more surprises for you all in 2021. We plan to use this additional time to create a better festival than we could have done this year even without Covid. Stay tuned to festival updates via our email list, website and social media channels.
Finally, we remind all music lovers out there to support independent artists, venues and festivals however you can during these unprecedented times. One of the main motivations for creating this festival has always been to evolve the roots music community in the Midwest to its fullest potential. One thing is clear moving forward, the music community needs all the support it can get right now.
Stay safe, stay positive. We look forward to seeing you in Lawrence next August 2021.
