Briggs Farm Blues Festival has been rescheduled to July 8, 9 and 10, 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic. While the 2020 weekend has been wiped out, the team behind the long-running Nescopeck, Pa., gathering is working on some enhancements for the 2021 edition, including the construction of a larger main stage, updated camping areas and a redesigned layout to accommodate more food and arts vendors.
“The Festival intends to host the same nationally and internationally acclaimed lineup scheduled for 2020 including headliners such as Ana Popovic, The Campbell Brothers, Victor Wainwright, and Mac Arnold,” festival organizers said in a press release.
All ticket and campsite purchases will be honored for 2021. Ticket information can be found on the Briggs Farm Blues Festival website at briggsfarm.com.
In noting the difficulty in deciding to postpone, festival founder Richard Briggs said, “People come here year after year… they plan their summers around it.”
The four-day, family-run festival launched in 1998 and is held on the Briggs family’s 250-year-old farm.
