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.

As of Mar, 2021, 30% capacity for indoor events is allowed in most of our venues. We will be keeping a careful eye on updated guidelines as we move forward to ensure the safety of our audience, artists and volunteers.
