Yes, you read that right: 2023.
The pandemic has put the brakes on countless music festivals in 2020 and 2021, but in recent times live events have been able to return by implementing enhanced security measures, such as requiring potential attendees to provide proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test.
As music festival organizers continue to navigate the complexities of COVID-19 restrictions, some believe it is still too early to return.
Costa Rica’s beloved Envision Festival initially postponed its 2021 edition until February 21-28, 2022, advising all ticket holders that it will be worth the wait. Unfortunately, the Envisionaries will now have to wait an additional 370 days. In recent months, festival organizers have worked closely with Costa Rican authorities, monitoring and analyzing the impact of COVID-19.
But they finally decided to end the next sold-out event. Despite continued efforts to achieve the weeklong jungle experience, they officially announced that there will be no rally in Uvita, Costa Rica this year. In an official statement, the Envision team explained that “the organization of an international event of this size in February 2022 cannot be done without significant risk to the well-being and the experience of our participants, from our people, our talents and in particular the local community of Uvita and its health care systems. “
