The Tisbury Board of Selectmen has canceled the 2020 Beach Road Weekend Music Festival.

Innovation Arts & Entertainment, the producer of the festival, supports this decision. The three-day music festival was set to take place Friday, July 24, to Sunday, July 26, at Veterans Memorial Park in Vineyard Haven. Ticket buyers will receive a full refund. Innovation Arts & Entertainment plans to bring Beach Road Weekend back to Martha’s Vineyard in 2021 with another talented lineup.

The board of selectmen made the decision after speaking with local first responders and medical professionals. The music festival was canceled in order to ensure that the police, fire, and EMS workers could focus exclusively on urgent care for citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic.

IAE is establishing a system to offer every travel package purchaser and ticket buyer a full refund. Those refunds will be paid out as soon as possible. In the coming days, ticket buyers will receive an email with details regarding the refund.
