In an email to ticket holders and statement on social media, organizers of the inaugural Crown of Sound officially announced the festival will not take place in 2020.

Organizers are working with artists and city stakeholders to plan for 2021 and are giving ticket holders the option to hold on to their ticket for next year or receive a refund.

Crown of Sound was to be a brand new festival that was scheduled to take place at Langford’s Westhills Stadium on June 13, 2020. The music lineup would have featured Bishop Briggs, Allan Rayman, Jesse Roper and Carmanah with more to be announced had the COVID-19 pandemic not shut the world down days following the festival being made public.
