For the last few months, our team has been closely following the worldwide events surrounding COVID-19.
Beaches Brew is an organization that prides ourselves on providing a positive experience that both visitors and artists look forward to. We value the health and safety of everyone that comes to the festival—including our sound engineers, tech crew, bartenders, wait staff, and kitchen team—and we are taking everyone’s situation into consideration.
Many things are still changing every day, but if we are permitted by the Italian government and health authorities, we hope to host Beaches Brew 2020 as planned. Although some artists will no longer be able to play the festival due to travel restrictions and canceled tour dates, we are happy to host all that are able to make it to Hana-bi—if we are allowed, and if it is possible to move forward responsibly.
We’d like to thank everyone that has championed Beaches Brew in our nine years, and offer our gratitude for your continued support. Please take care of yourselves; it is through you that we are able to continue this special, free festival each year. We look forward to the next time we are all dancing on the beach together.
Sincerely, The Beaches Brew team
