2020 Festival Cancelled

The 7th Annual Island Unplugged Music Festival on Pelee Island that was originally planned for Aug 14 + 15 2020 has been cancelled. Our festival relies heavily on ticket sales, tourism industry partners, local sponsors, as well as provincial and federal funding to come to life every year. In these uncertain times, the board has unanimously agreed that it would be prudent to cancel the 2020 event at this time. We have considered the safety of our artists, vendors, volunteers and festival goers, the best interest of the island and finally the financial health of our organization when coming to this decision. We hope that by making this tough decision now, we will be able to return in 2021.

As COVID-19 continues to have a profound impact on our artists, we humbly ask that you continue to support artists by buying their music. Watch our Facebook page for regular artist links with some of our favourite music to purchase.

We also ask that you support our sponsors where you can. These local businesses have given year over year to support this event. Please do your part to #supportlocal.

Full refunds will be given to those that have already purchased tickets and campsites.

We wish all of you peace and good health. Stay safe, festies.

Love, from the island…

Cathy, Kim & Amanda.
