Moon Crush, The First Socially-Distanced Music Experience, Next Year In Miramar Beach, FL
I am pleased to announce the first music festival in 2021! Topeka, the company I was just talking about a few days ago, is presenting Moon Crush, the first socially-distanced music experience, the first-in-kind travel, and music experience providing a safe destination to see live music early next year. The five-day event will take place April 26-May 1, 2021 in Miramar Beach, FL, and will see performances by Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, The Revivalists, NEEDTOBREATHE, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Lake Street Dive, Grace Potter, Shovels & Rope, Vintage Trouble, The War and Treaty, Sammy Rae and the Friends and more to be announced.
Set during the Super Pink Moon of 2021, Moon Crush is designed to bring people together safely, offering a solution to the current health crisis. Guests will attend with a trusted group of family and friends (4 to 22) and reserve one of over 300+ beachfront and beachside homes and condos, conveniently located just a short walk or golf cart ride to the musical performances at a beautiful local golf course.
Programming will be limited to only 3 artists per day, during the afternoons and early evenings, to limit the need for attendees to enter and leave multiple times. The festival will offer a single stage of music outdoors in a large open space, where each trusted group of people will enjoy the shows in their own private viewing area that is safely distanced from other guests. There will be also plenty of time to enjoy yoga on the beach or prepare meals with friends between the musical performances.
Moon Crush will provide contactless food and beverage service delivered directly while onsite, in addition to a host of local restaurants offering food delivery and local grocery stores enabling guests to cook in their own homes.
All participants will be required to show proof of a recent negative COVID test before checking-in and will have to wear a mask at all times when not in private, pod-specific viewing areas. You can find all the information, including pricing, here.
Moon Crush has partnered with Andy Levine’s Sixthman, the global leader in music festivals at sea, to support the festival experience through a suite of Event Management Services including reservations, guest services, branding, website design, and on-site logistics. Topeka, Levine’s growing platform that created the first-in-kind virtual ‘Front Row’ concert experience, is at the origin of this new kind of festival, in an attempt to expand the live experience (You can watch an example of Topeka’s Hang Sessions HERE and visit Topeka.live for more information).
This looks good and safe too, as long as people respect the rules and practice social distancing. It’s about time we could announce a live event.
