BGS has partnered with the Philadelphia Folksong Society, presenters of the oldest continuously run music festival in North America – the Philadelphia Folk Festival – on a special, winter digital music event, Cabin Fever Fest, to place February 20 & 21, 2021! Pandemic or not, this winter, everyone will have a cozy front row seat as PFS and BGS present this fully digital, interactive musical experience complete with multiple streaming stages and featuring performances by Avi Kaplan, Keb’ Mo’, Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, Valerie June, Larkin Poe, The Secret Sisters, and many more. (See full lineup below.)
Tickets to Cabin Fever Fest are available now, including early bird pricing valid until end of day tomorrow, January 30. Details and tickets are available at folkfest.org. Early Bird weekend passes to Cabin Fever Fest are available for just $35 for PFS Members and $40 for Not-Yet-Members. Your ticket gives you full access to the event from February 20 until February 28, to watch at your leisure and convenience.
Building on what they’ve learned from their virtual festival forays last summer, PFS & BGS will once again bring a vibrant, online music festival experience directly to music enthusiasts’ homes to mark only six months left in the long wait until the 60th Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival in August of this year. Like the festival, Cabin Fever Fest will feature unforgettable original performances from national headliners, international stars, and local talent. Branching out from past Folk Festival programming, Cabin Fever Fest will also feature an emphasis on music workshops and performance that digitally bring us closer together during these difficult winter months of isolation.
Cabin Fever Fest will include performances by: Avi Kaplan, Keb’ Mo’, Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, Valerie June, Larkin Poe, The Secret Sisters, James McMurtry, Jake Shimabukuro, Sierra Hull, Mwenso & the Shakes, Gangstagrass, AJ Lee and Blue Summit, Jontavious Willis, Midnight Skyracer, Bella White, Wesli, OKAN, and more to be announced.
All ticket purchasers will be able to watch Cabin Fever Fest on demand until February 28, 2021. FAQ here.
