JACKSONVILLE, Ore. — The 2020 Britt Festival concert season will be wholly postponed until next year, the Britt announced in a statement on Thursday afternoon.

"Like so many performing arts organizations and businesses, Britt is now faced with the challenge of carving our path in an uncertain world," the organization said. 

In a news conference laying out the framework for phase one reopening, Governor Kate Brown said concerts and all large gatherings should be canceled through at least September 2020. Even then, the Governor said she wouldn't be comfortable with large events until there was a vaccine for COVID-19. 

"Due to this mandate, and out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our community, including musicians, fans, partners, and staff, the 2020 Britt Presents Season will be postponed until 2021," the organization said in its announcement. 

Britt Fest said many of the artists in the 2020 lineup have already signed up for next season.

Refunds and credits are available upon request. The Festival is asking people to considering donating their tickets back to Britt. 

"In the midst of this unprecedented financial hardship, we ask for your help to get us through this difficult time. Britt is a non-profit organization," the organization said. "Donating your tickets, taking credits, or holding on to your ticket is an investment in our community."

Refunds and credits will need to be requested before July 1. All ticket purchases for canceled concerts will be credited to ticket-holders' Britt accounts after June 30 if a donation or refund has not been requested. You can reach the Britt box office at boxoffice@brittfest.org or by calling 541-773-6077.

"We extend our sincere wishes to you and yours for safety and good health," the Britt said. "Together, we will overcome this period of time while discovering a new era of creativity, respect, and appreciation for one another. Everyone is going to be ready to celebrate, gather and enjoy music on the hill in 2021. Next year will be a celebration of unity and resilience."

This is a developing story and will be updated with more details as they emerge.
