It is with a heavy heart that we must share the news that the May 2nd Shabang is postponed. Just last week, we were optimistic that there was a path forward; but with COVID-19 spreading rapidly and with the need for urgent steps to contain it, we have had to make a difficult decision. The health and wellness of our community is our utmost priority and because of that, we cannot ethically move forward with a May 2nd event.
The Shabang Journey started small, but has grown into something beyond our wildest dreams. Shabang comes to life because of you—our fans, our family, our believers. We cannot thank you enough for supporting us on this crazy ride. Although we are unable to unite on May 2nd, this journey has just begun and we will always fight to create the best experience for you.
The next Shabang will be on May 1st, 2022. All current tickets will be honored for our next festival. As an independently run grassroots organization, these unprecedented circumstances have had a significant impact on us financially. As a result, we are only capable of giving partial refunds along with vouchers for the remaining value that can be applied to our next festival. If you believe in us and would like to see the Shabang legacy continue on, we ask that you bypass the partial refund and allow your ticket to fully roll over to the next event. This will allow our organization to stay afloat. Please trust that your investment will pay off as we promise you a future Shabang of a lifetime. Making it through this difficult time together is profoundly important. We will Shabang again as not only a festival, but as a reunited community. Please stay safe, spend quality time at home, and look out for one another.
New information will be released soon and all ticket purchasers will be contacted about next steps. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to listen, learn, and share. We love you and thank you for your grassroots support.
