We were counting down the summer days to the inaugural Firewater Festival. A weekend packed with memories... rocking under the crisp October moonlight and camping beneath billions of stars. 


For the last four months, we’ve navigated the rollercoaster of information and emotional ups and downs of this terrible pandemic. Guided by experts in public health and safety, we chose to keep moving forward in hopes the situation would improve. However, as we continue to face uncertainties, we will not take a risk with the safety of the people who matter the most to us; our families and our fans. With broken hearts and sad souls, we must announce Firewater 2020 will be postponed to September 30th – October 2nd, 2021. 


Make no mistake - Whiskey Myers & friends are coming back together for an even better launch of Firewater Music Festival in 2021, be sure to mark your calendars. Our entire team has an extra year to plan an unforgettable experience of music, camping, and outdoor adventures.


All Firewater 2020 tickets will automatically roll-over to #FW2021; you don’t need to do anything.  We understand that some Firewater 2020 ticket holders unfortunately may not be able to make it in 2021. As such, refunds will be made available beginning on August 13, 2020 and will continue through September 13, 2020. We do hope you will stick with us and continue to be part of our Firewater Fam!
