in case of #covidbeats
JULY 14, 2020 UPDATE:
We know all of you have been MORE THAN READY to unite once again on the dance floor, but unfortunately - as we feared - the state of Florida opened too soon, cases of Coronavirus have now surpassed previous numbers and things are once again shutting down. We are very much still living in a pandemic world. Please know that our guests, staff and artists' health and safety is equally as important to us as our cause.
As things stood on June 1st, we had prepared procedures:
to limit capacity and follow social distancing guidelines throughout the festival grounds (yes, we may decide to cap attendance)
to Increase our cleaning and disinfection procedures, and will be working with our partners to utilize the most earth-friendly products on all high touch surfaces
to implement temperature checks for guests, staff, artists, vendors, volunteers and media (ANYONE working or entering the festival)
to stock both our website store (opening soon) and festival merchandise stands with protective (and very Fantasy) face coverings/masks
to implement 100% cash-free transactions for purchasing food, drinks and merchandise utilizing innovative digital wristbands and/or various smartphone apps such as Google/Apple/Samsung Pay platforms
With regards to allowing Fantasyzers to bring their own reusable bottle/canteen (BYOBottle), we had discussions planned to take place in July with the city and our partners on the best way to move forward, including possibly establishing bottle/canteen sanitizing stations to be placed at festival entrance, all hydration stations and bars throughout Fantasy grounds, among other sanitation precautions.
On July 10th ElektrikEventz co-founders held a formal virtual meeting with our host City officials to discuss the outlook for fall, and it was decided that Elektrik Fantasy IV would be postponed until 2021.
It is with a very heavy heart that we share this news, as we know you have been waiting so long to join us, and we were prepared to be the first music festival to open our gates and welcome everyone since the pandemic struck its first huge blow and obliterated every music gathering large and small across Florida and the Nation. We had such high hopes that everyone - from government and state officials to the public - would take this pandemic seriously, make intelligent decisions based on health and safety instead of money and defiance, and that by fall we could all safely and happily gather once again in the name of Change.... it seems the "old ways" of thinking are putting up quite the fight in the face of their imminent end.
