Some things go great with festivals: nature, friends, camping.
Wildfires, not so much.
As a result of the ongoing Soberanes Fire and subsequent campsite and road closures, the popular Woodsist Festival is moving north.
With some now poetic irony, Jeremy Earl told the Weekly adjusting on the fly is a big part of the band's DNA.
Adam Joseph notes as much with his piece, "Woodsist Festival brings another strong lineup to Big Sur, quoting Earl": "Improvising has always been part of our live shows. We stretch out a little bit more."
Here's the word from festival organizers, followed by the new schedule:
Due to the recent wild Soberanes Fire in Big Sur we are moving this year's WOODSIST FEST to Point Reyes, CA.
The State Parks in Big Sur are closing as of today. Sadly, it will simply be unsafe for us to host the fest in Big Sur this year. Much thought went into this decision but ultimately it is the right thing to do as we send our collective prayers to the community of Big Sur at this very difficult time. Over 20 homes and counting have been lost so far...
The new Fest site at Love Field in Point Reyes will be wonderful and ALL attendees are now able to camp on site as part of their ticket purchase. Yes, that is right...on- site camping is now included with your ticket so that option is open to everyone who has a ticket.
We are so excited to save the Fest and present it to you in this new location. It is a very special spot. Our hearts and prayers remain with the community of Big Sur during this very scary time. We are working on setting up a relief fund at the new Point Reyes site for Big Sur donations.
New WOODSIST FEST Site is here:
11191 Sir Francis Drake Blvd
Point Reyes Station CA 94956
