Dear Shakti Fest Community,
We regret to inform you that Shakti Fest, which was scheduled for May 3-5, 2024, has been cancelled. We understand the disappointment this may cause and want to assure you that this decision was not made lightly.
Bhakti Fest 2023 marked an incredible milestone for us, as we witnessed the revival of our festivals after a challenging period due to the COVID pandemic. The enthusiasm and joy surrounding the return of these events filled us with immense inspiration. However, the landscape of event production has evolved significantly, and the rising costs of goods within the industry have created new challenges for us.
Organizing and delivering these festivals requires an abundance of love, time, and energy from each and every one of you. We value your unwavering commitment and believe in fair compensation for your incredible contributions. Moreover, we are wholeheartedly committed to creating the most exceptional and uplifting experiences for our Shakti/Bhakti Fest community. In order to achieve this, we have made the decision to focus our resources and energy on making Bhakti Fest 2024 the standout celebration of the year, taking place from September 27-29, 2024.
We understand that many of you were looking forward to immersing yourselves in the transformative and uplifting experience that Shakti Fest offers. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience or disruption this cancellation may cause to your plans. All ticket holders, vendors, and presenters have been notified via email. Any questions about this can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember we are a small team, and give us grace in response times through our email. If you do not receive a response within a week, please send us a follow up and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
We thank you for your understanding and ongoing support of Shakti Fest. We remain committed to creating a safe and inspiring environment for our community to gather, connect, and celebrate. We look forward to an incredible gathering of Bhakti Fest. Join us September 27-29 for a magical 13th anniversary festival.
We send our warmest wishes and hope to see you in September!
The Shakti Fest Team
