IMPORTANT NEWS ITEM FROM MICK STERLING PRESENTS:

Rapidly Changing State Mandates on Covid-19 Drive Changes at Major Music Fest

“THE 2021 RELIEF SESSIONS SUMMER CONCERT SERIES” SWITCHING TO ALL GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS FOR THE BURNSVILLE CIVIC CENTER BEGINNING MAY 28 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 6

The Original Drive-In Concept Is Now A Chair-and-Blanket Family-Friendly Event

WHO

BIG CHANGES are being announced for the 2021 Relief Sessions Summer Concert Series:

Because of the loosening government mandates on Covid-19 safeguards, The Relief Sessions “Drive-In Style” outdoor concert is being dropped for a General Admission concert series setting where you can now bring a chair or blanket to enjoy the shows – without your car!

According to the event’s Artistic Director, Mick Sterling, “We are going to suspend all ticket sales as of Monday, May 10th at Noon for 7 days as we switch to full General Admission tickets for all shows. The Governor’s recent announcement will now allow unlimited capacity for outdoor venues. This welcomed news also will provide the bands greater chances to have a larger audience to see them perform.”

Sterling adds:

• All people who have purchased tickets prior to suspension of sales, will be able to stay for the entire day now – our way of saying thanks to them for purchasing early!

• Early ticket buyers – and all new ticket purchasers — now will not have to have their vehicle next to them anymore. They can of course park their vehicle in the parking lot, but their space does not require a vehicle any longer.

• Tickets for all shows will not be Reserved, but will now be General Admission.

May 14 Update From Mick Sterling Presents:  

Due to the wonderful news of the mask mandate being lifted along with the outdoor gathering limits being lifted, THE RELIEF SESSIONS SUMMER CONCERT series is thrilled to announce over 80% of our concerts will now be reducing their per-show ticket price by $5 – $10 per show! 

We can do this because we now have more capacity for the bands and we want to celebrate along with you!!   We’ll see you at the show!!

An important note from Mick Sterling Presents about compensation of ticket price changes for early ticket buyers:

Thank you so much for your early purchase of tickets. The event has reduced prices for all of the show(s) you purchased tickets to attend. We want to make sure you are compensated for your ticket price you paid.

I will email you personally to provide you with information as to how we will provide you a $5 or $10 voucher at the festival for food and/or drink to compensate you for the initial price you paid for your tickets. Thank you for your patience and again, we are very grateful for your interest and attendance at THE RELIEF SESSIONS SUMMER CONCERT SERIES. – Mick Sterling

Tickets will now go on sale May 14 at 4:00 PM, instead of Noon as previously announced, so that we can offer these new prices to you.
