The Deer Valley Music Festival, which was scheduled to run from July 3 through August 12 in Park City, has been postponed until 2021, the Utah Symphony announced in a press release on Tuesday.
The decision to postpone the festival was made after consulting with Summit County health officials and local community partners, according to the press release.
“We are saddened that it has become necessary to postpone the Deer Valley Music Festival this summer, and we are working hard to reschedule performances into summer 2021. Our first priority is the health and safety of our musicians, staff and the public,” Patricia A. Richards, interim president and CEO of Utah Symphony Utah Opera, said in the release.
“Our decision has been made with careful consideration of state recommendations for reopening large public gatherings and on the advice of county health officials,” Richards continued. “We look forward to presenting a renewed and vibrant outdoor season in summer 2021 when we can once again join together as a community over great live music.”
The lineup for the 2020 festival included concerts from the Utah Symphony as well as performances from The Beach Boys, Kool & The Gang, Ben Folds, and more.
In March, the Utah Symphony canceled the remainder of the performances from its 2019-2020 season in response to the coronavirus pandemic, and no performances are currently scheduled until September. The Symphony is working to reschedule its concert dates from the 2020 season, according to the press release.
Ticket holders for the Deer Valley Music Festival will be issued tickets for new performance dates, and will be contacted by the ticket office when the new dates are announced, according to the release.
