The organizers behind this year’s Skull & Roses music festival in California have announced they will be postponing this year’s event.

Firstly, we want to thank you for your patience. We know how passionate each and every one of you are about the Skull & Roses experience. We are too, and it’s what makes these challenging times that much tougher.

Wednesday night, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California public health officials issued an updated policy on gatherings to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19. The state’s public health experts determined that gatherings should be postponed or canceled across the state until at least the end of March. Non-essential gatherings must be limited to no more than 250 people. Even though our event falls just a couple days beyond the end of March, we cannot make the assumption that this mandate will be cleared by then.

Following these guidelines, it is no longer possible to hold Skull & Roses in early April as originally planned, and as a result we are postponing until a new weekend can be determined.

All original purchases, including hotel and camping stays will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Let us alleviate your concerns: We fully intend to issue refunds for those that are unable to attend. We will notify pass holders by Friday, March 20th on how to obtain refunds. No refunds will be issued before this date.

Good to see that they’ll be able to issue refunds and move it to later in the year. Hopefully the music plays on once the concerns die down.
