In light of recent news, its true. Our current times have left us uncertain, unknown, and completely in limbo about the future. Our main concern is the safety and health of others, we care about each and every one of you and our community. The logistics of creating a safe festival environment, even in a greatly reduced capacity, is unrealistic as many of our key service providers are incapable of providing these services. Our goal and purpose is to continue to ensure that we will be able to provide "Summer's End - The Draper Rendezvous” to friends, family, associates, all parties involved and most especially you, the fans for the next many years in the Wood River Valley. With the current state of battling the global pandemic without a vaccine or herd immunity, we cannot see the lift proceeding this summer. DrSwanMusic has a tremendous amount of empathy for our human race and society, and feels we need to be safe and healthy and take the right decisions for our community.
Though the community has heard already, we wanted to officially confirm that Summer's End ~ The Draper Rendezvous 2020 scheduled for the week of August 17 – 23, 2020 will be rescheduled to the 2021 season. DrSwanMusic is beyond heartbroken for cancelling the 2020 season, but it feels the safest and best thing to do for our community. DrSwanMusic has rescheduled and moved all “Road To Summer’s End” events & the main festival “Summer’s End ~ The Draper Rendezvous” to August 23 – August 29, 2021. We’re excited to bring the music to all of you, and that being said, DrSwanMusic will be adding more bands to the overall lineup; joining Thunderpussy, The Mother Hips, Kitchen Dwellers, and 70 other musical acts, creating a bigger, better, and safer Summer’s End. There will be an additional day added to the main festival at Lion’s Park in Hailey, Idaho on August 27 & 28, 2021 bringing over 30 bands in two days and 70 + bands the week of Summer’s End. For the summer of 2020, filling the void for Summer’s End, DrSwanMusic will help produce and help aid artists with virtual livestreams, to help give back to the musicians who need it the most. We will help promote bands, small businesses and every moving part involved to help spread awareness and to aid and a helping lending hand.
The 2nd Annual Summer’s End ~ The Draper Rendezvous’ current ticket holders will be personally contacted, and will be thanked for their early support and given the option for a refund in tickets or given an upgraded 2 day festival pass, a koozie, festival printed poster, VIP access, and a custom water bottle for rolling over & transferring to the 2021 season, in helping ensure the love and music never stops at Summer’s End. Other DrSwanMusic events that were postponed including upcoming scheduled Supersuckers at Sun Valley Brewery 5/30/2020 will be offered the same options.
DrSwanMusic, wants to thank the Wood River Valley and community for each and every effort & love and support to help create the festival. Summer’s End wouldn’t be here without your love and support. Thank you for being a community as one and showing the light through the darkness of the global pandemic we are living. Keep the faith and accept the good and thank you for helping ensure the love and music never stops.
