Update about BAMS Festival 2021

Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and it's impact on large outdoor events and gatherings, we have decided to postpone our event to June 2022. 

To our community, we thank you for your continued support of our work, our programs and our team. We are planning and pivoting to different ways of being present in your lives - safely, holistically and the right way.

To our artists, we are forever grateful for your ability to be flexible during these difficult times. We are pushing ourselves and imagination on how to best support you (personally and professionally). We appreciate your patience.

To our vendors, it is our sincere hope that you can join us in 2022, where we believe you all can receive the best opportunities to connect with your customers in a fun and supportive environment. 

In lieu of the Festival, we will be presenting AMPLIFY THE SOUL, a summer-long digital music experiential series focused on restoring Black joy, making connections, and building community for music lovers, culture seekers, and everyday people. Programming will begin June 11 via our YouTube Channel.

Thank you for your continued support.

Onward and upward,
BAMS Fest Team
