Coldsnap set to heat up COVID-19 winter in Prince George

COVID-19 can’t keep a Coldsnap from descending on the city this winter.

Coldsnap 2021 is on. The board and staff of Prince George Folkfest Society have announced that, after months of careful deliberation, consultation and consideration of provincial health orders, they have “formulated an exciting, safe and comfortable live music festival.”

Coldsnap, the Prince George winter music festival will happen between January 29 and February 6 at venues soon to be announced. The lineup of exceptional northern B.C. and visiting performers will also soon be announced.

Organizers can’t release many details right now but say that during the festival week, they will present live music in front of a small but live audience (if permitted), at the usual reasonable ticket price. To maximize the number of folks that can enjoy the music, they will livestream all the shows at no charge, courtesy of funders and sponsors.

They will also have a daytime outreach series during the week, although those will be conducted via the internet.

“The safety of our audience, artists, volunteers and staff is paramount so please know that we need to stay flexible in our presentation and plans,” according to a statement issued by organizers. “But we are very excited and grateful to be planning for Coldsnap 2021 with all the support we have received from our funders, sponsors, members and volunteers.”

Stay tuned to the Coldsnap website (www.coldsnapfestival.com) and its social media channels for details on the artist lineup, schedule, venues, safety protocols and when and how to buy tickets which will be released soon.
