Friday, March 5, 2021 8:35 AM PT / 8,267 views
In late 2019, organizers of Furnace Fest revealed plans to hold the first installment of the festival since 2003 in September 2020. Obviously, the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic scuttled their plans and the event has been rescheduled more than once during the past year. If all goes well, however, the long-awaited return of Furnace Fest will take place on September 24, 25, and 26 at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, AL. Myriad safety precautions will be in place for the event (see below) and there still exists the possibility of postponement if circumstances dictate as much. Caveats aside, Furnace Fest 2021 will feature headliners Underoath, Taking Back Sunday, and Killswitch Engage, with the full-lineup as follows: Friday, September 24 Underoath Astronoid Cave In Converge Defeater Eighteen Visions Emery END ERRA Every Time I Die Few Left Standing From Autumn To Ashes Gideon Glasseater Haste Luxury Mr.ENC Narcissus Open Hand Reclaim The Empyre Rivals SeeYouSpaceCowboy Stavesacre Terminal Thursday Unwed Sailor With Honor Zao Saturday, September 25 Taking Back Sunday All Get Out Anberlin The Appleseed Cast The Beautiful Mistake Beloved Better Off The Bled Bloodjinn Cartel Codeseven The Darling Fire Evergreen Terrace Forever Starts Today Further Seems Forever He Is Legend Hopesfall Life In Your Way Living Sacrifice Mae Mayday Parade Mineral Misery Signals Scary Kids Scaring Kids Shai Hulud Stretch Arm Strong Touche Amore Turnstile Sunday, September 26 Killswitch Engage '68 Andrew W.K.

Full weekend passes, single-day tickets, and VIP upgrades for this one-time resurrection on the haunted grounds of Sloss Furnaces are available now at www.furnacefest.us See you in September! Wait, wait, wait! What about all my questions? Oh, right. You have questions. Fair enough! Q: I already purchased tickets; what do I to ensure access? IF YOU ALREADY PURCHASED passes (3-day, single-day, Beloved bundles), you have two options: 1. Keep your current ticket(s) which will be valid for the new Fall dates. No additional steps are required. 2. For those who cannot make the new dates, we'll open a 30-day refund window (March 6th - April 5th) on tickets purchased before today. You may request a refund by emailing your order number to greenlight@freshtix.com. Even if you've messaged us on social media or emailed us directly, you must email your order # to the freshtix email above. Deadline for refund requests is April 2nd, 2021. Q: If I request a refund but feel I might be able to attend the festival in the end, will I get tickets at the early bird pricing, along with the bundle items that originally came with my ticket order? You are more than welcome to request a refund, even if you are eventually able to repurchase. Unfortunately, early bird pricing and bundle items are limited to tickets already purchased/held and are not transferable to new ticket purchases. Q: I'm still not comfortable with the idea of attending a large gathering. What makes you so confident, and how will you address Covid concerns? We get it! First of all, we'll observe all local & national large gathering guidelines for both the audience and the artists, with safety being 100% the top priority on both sides of the fence. We are more confident than ever that Furnace Fest will happen this September. Covid cases are trending down. We have access to three highly effective vaccines with others in development. Much larger events have either already happened (Super Bowl) or are scheduled for our same timeframe (Riot, Alabama Football, Louder than Life). In a worst-case scenario, we'll be transparent with you about the possibility of any postponement. Ticket purchases will always be transferable, and you may now purchase ticket cancellation protection ($20.11 for 3-day passes) to guarantee your money back. Q: What safety protocols are you putting in place as of now? 1. Furnace Fest is a 100% outdoor event with no gatherings indoors at all. 2. Masks will be required (unless the CDC lifts this pre-FF). 3. Hand sanitizer will be available at the gate and throughout the grounds. 4. An isolation area will be available if anyone needs first aid or doesn't feel well after entering the fest. 5. High-touch surfaces will be routinely cleaned, including handles/toilets/buttons/handrails (again, unless the CDC lifts this). 6. Staff & volunteers will be required to wear face masks and receive temperature scans (anyone above 100.4 will be sent home). Thank you for your continued support! *While we don't anticipate this, the schedule is subject to change. See Less
