Coldsnap 2022 postponed due to COVID-19

After careful consideration, the Prince George Folkfest Society has decided to postpone Coldsnap 2022.

Although health restrictions have not changed capacity limits for in-person events, travel has become a significant cause of spread for the omicron variant which poses a concern to artists and festival-goers.

During Coldsnap 2021, all artists were from BC and drove to Prince George to perform, whereas many of the 40 artists set to take the stage this year are scheduled to fly in.

Festival kickoff would have been on Jan. 28 and brought in bands like Early Spirit, BoomBooms, Murray Porter, Sarah Smith, and The Lost Fingers.

No new dates have been selected as of yet, as organizers are working to contact all artists to potentially keep the lineup as similar as possible.

“To those patrons that have already bought tickets…THANK YOU! Your support fills us with the desire to do everything we can to present these amazing musicians with their awe-inspiring music,” said the release.

“We hope you will keep your tickets to shows that feature the same artists, although the dates will be different – all tickets will be honoured for shows on the new dates. We will also provide a refund to those that request it.”

Until new dates are released, ticket sales have been suspended for the time being.
