It is with heavy emotions that we share this news, Melted Music Festival is canceled for this weekend.
Yesterday, March 10, 2020, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine recommended avoiding large gatherings and events amid the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19.
Today, March 11, 2020, Governor DeWine gave a press conference and has confirmed that this recommendation is now going to be mandated by the State of Ohio. We are still waiting for the written mandate to be published, but given the governor’s verbal statement, Melted Music Festival has no choice but to cancel.
Just yesterday, we were still hopeful to host an incredible weekend of music despite the tenuous circumstances. While we fully support the guidance of healthcare professionals and our public officials, please know that canceling this event has been an incredibly difficult choice to make. We recognize that this cancellation impacts the artists, the festival attendees, and our staff and production teams. Given this, we cannot thank you enough for sticking with us, purchasing tickets, and making MELTED a part of your year. It means the world to us to have dedicated fans like you, which is why we tried our best to keep the party going.
We are exploring options for rescheduling, but this may take a few days. We will be making further announcements by Monday, 3/16/20, at the latest. If we can reschedule, we will be honoring your tickets for the new dates. If you are unable to attend the new dates or we are unable to reschedule, we will be offering 100% refunds to all ticket purchasers.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate this increasingly complicated situation – and we wish everyone the very best. Meanwhile, keep washing your hands. Be safe, but not scared.
We trust that things will get better.
