Unsurprisingly, BottleRock Presents has canceled the 2020 iteration of the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival, which was scheduled on two weekends in September. The cancelation came down to the County of Sonoma Permit & Resource Management Department, which suspended the event’s permit. The cancelation came a day after the postponement of the flagship BottleRock festival.

“This is the right decision,” BottleRock Presents Partner Dave Graham said in a news release. “The health and safety of the community is our primary concern.” According to the festival promoter, a 2021 festival and lineup will be announced in the future.

Everyone who bought a ticket to this year’s festival will be refunded in “as little as 30 days.” For more information email

Sonoma Harvest Music Festival, which was to be held for the third year at Glen Ellen’s BR Cohn Winery, was to include Modest Mouse, Empire of The Sun, Dashboard Confessional, X Ambassadors and more. The festival set itself apart by offering many of the same attractions attendees at Napa’s BottleRock but in a more relaxed vineyard setting. Other performers in 2020 would have included Young The Giant, Grouplove, The Struts,  The Naked and Famous, Betty Who, Best Coast, SmallpoolsThe WrecksEdward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Fitz and The Tantrums, Bishop Briggs, Saint Motel, Joywave, Magic Giant, Yoke Lore and Almost Monday.
