Statement 7/10/2020
New Blues Festival has been working closely with the City of Long Beach over the past months trying to determine what Covid-19 would mean for our event. City staff have been great with help and guidance, but ultimately answer to the state's official directives. These directives have been sporadic due to the changing landscape of Covid-19. 
Because of the second wave there is now little time to organize for 2020 and so the festival must be postponed until August 7th & 8th 2021. 
All artists have been contacted and we will do our best to have the same lineup for 2021, Robert Cray, Harvey Mason & New Blues Revolution are the first to confirm for 2021.
2020 Tickets are good for NBF 2021, with no additional surcharge. NO additional fee will be added to your ticket for 2021!
Refunds are available BUT there is NO TIME LIMIT FOR REFUND REQUESTS! You can wait for 2021's official lineup before deciding and stay locked-in at 2020's price!
Alternatively, If you wish to help local blues artists suffering during Covid-19 due to lack of gigs, you can donate your purchased ticket price to Long Beach Blues Society's 'Give A Gig' fundraiser, we will then donate money, cards and food directly to local artists and their families. See more information below. This is a deductible donation against your tax obligation.

Lastly, thank you all so much for your support and understanding during these unprecedented times; you have been amazing! Please stay safe and well, and you are gonna get a hell of a post lock down event!
