ACMF believes we need music and cultural experiences now more than ever, which is why it is so important to us to bring live in-person performances to our audience this Summer 2021.
We are closely monitoring Covid-19 safety protocols and guidelines in the area, and have plans in place to make the festival a success! This includes a thorough social-distancing safety protocol, and excitingly, most of our events will be available live-streamed and in digital format via our Facebook page, YouTube and other platforms as well as in-person.
