The Ness Creek Music Festival has become the first major entertainment event in Saskatchewan to be struck down two years in a row by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Ness Creek Cultural and Recreational Society announced the decision on its Facebook page.

“Due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19, we are sad to announce the 2021 Ness Creek Music Festival is cancelled,” the statement said. “We are cautiously optimistic about being able to provide some form of ‘Ness Magic’ on a much smaller scale, so keep an eye on our social media channels for more information!”

The 2020 festival was also forced to cancel due to the pandemic, one of many Saskatchewan summer events shuttered by COVID-19.

Earlier this month, Ness Creek festival manager Carlie Letts said 2020 revenue for the festival organization was down around 70 per cent from the norm.

“We’re hoping for the best, but assuming the worst,” Letts said about a possible 2021 festival earlier this year.
