Envision Festival Postponed to 2023
Yes, you read that right: 2023.
The pandemic put a damper on countless music festivals in 2020 and 2021 but as of late, live events have been able to return by implementing enhanced safety measures, such as mandating prospective attendees to provide proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test.
As music festival organizers continue to navigate the complexities of COVID-19 restrictions, some feel it's still too soon to return.
Costa Rica's beloved Envision Festival initially postponed their 2021 edition to February 21-28, 2022, informing all ticket-holders that it will be worth the wait. Unfortunately, Envisionaries will now have to wait an additional 370 days. Over the past several months, the fest's organizers have been in close collaboration with Costa Rican authorities, monitoring and analyzing the impact of COVID-19.
But they ultimately decided to pull the plug on the forthcoming sold-out event. Despite ongoing efforts to make the weeklong jungle experience happen, they have officially announced that there will be no gathering in Uvita, Costa Rica, this year. In an official statement, the Envision team explained that "hosting an international event of this size in February of 2022 cannot be done without significant risk to the wellbeing & experience of our attendees, staff, talent, and especially the local community of Uvita and its health care system."
