Furnace Fest announces final* year in 2024
Furnace Fest 2023 comes to a close tomorrow, Sunday, September 24th. This year's festival is the third year since coming back in 2021 after its start more than 20 years ago. As it turns out, next year's festival, recently announced for October 4-6, could be its last. According to festival organizers, the 2024 festival will mark the "end of an era" capping off an 8 festival run.
Furnace Fest originally started back in 2000 and ran until 2003 before lying dormant for two decades. Covid hampered its comeback in 2020, but in 2021, the festival arrived back on the scene in full force. With tomorrow's festivities wrapping up, fans are encouraged to lock in their tickets for next year's "End of an Era" Furnace Fest here.
Furnace Fest organizers shared on social media:
Furnace Fest Family: the end of an era is upon us.
In 2019, four unlikely friends set out to replicate the original Furnace Fest as a one-time resurrection. After postponing twice, FF2021 drew us together when we needed each other and live music most. From the heights of that glorious weekend, we began dreaming about a full four-year replica of the originals. We can't believe we're saying it, but next year, 2024, is the end of an era - completing our vision for Furnace Fest as we've come to know it.
What does this mean beyond next year? Will the festival end? Morph into something new, something different? These are the questions we are asking ourselves. What do we know? Furnace Fest transcends extended weekends in Alabama because we are a community, friends, and family defined not by differences but by similarities of history and passion.
Regardless of what happens beyond 2024, thank you for journeying with us. You've brought so much brightness into this season, helping us recover from a global pandemic and far more. Apart from your generous commitment to a dream, none of this would have happened. You found a way to make ten minutes last forever.
Here's what is next! Starting now through Sunday, Oct. 1st at 6 PM CST - early bird pre-sales to FF2024: The End of an Era are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets will never be cheaper (guaranteed or your money back).
We love and value you with all the fondness in the world.
See you in 2024 (October 4-6th)!
