About our Decision to Host a Hybrid Festival

Recent improvements in COVID19 pandemic conditions and progress in the vaccination efforts are encouraging. We are monitoring pandemic conditions very closely and following all local, state, and CDC guidance for public gatherings. We are committed to fulfilling our mission in a way that prioritizes community health and ensures accessibility. For us, this means piloting a hybrid Spirit & Soul Festival experience that delivers a free virtual concert through many platforms and an in-person watch party for those who are comfortable gathering safely.
