Hoxeyville Music Festival – August 19 – 21, 2016

HoxeyvilleSet on 100+ acres of pristine farmland and surrounded by natural hardwoods within the Manistee National Forest, Hoxeyville Music Festival is a testament to pure north country peace and celebration.

Hoxeyville boasts two stages featuring national touring artists, as well as the best and brightest Michigan talent. With an intimate capacity of three thousand and an amazing lineup, 2016 is not to be missed!

To our loyal Hoxey Family ~

Hoxeyville is postponed to our traditional weekend in 2021, August 13-15.

We held out hope that within this 60 day window our outlook would be more reassuring—but the inevitable truth is that large scale events and social distancing cannot coexist, and we cannot guarantee the health and safety of our patrons, staff, artists, vendors and volunteers in the face of Covid-19.

All tickets will be honored for 2021. Volunteer shifts remain the same, and all confirmed vending spaces will be held.

Hoxeyville has always been ferociously independent and free from corporate sponsorship. This means most years we break even if we do at all—5-13 truth be told.

You are essential to the livelihood of all musicians and artists you support. YOUR support makes everything possible.

Due to Covid-19, current ticket sales simply do not cover the cost of producing Hoxeyville. We are asking you to hold onto your tickets a little while longer. This offers more time to plan an epic trip to the Northwoods with your family and friends, and grants us more time to learn and implement necessary features to help safeguard the fun—whatever the future brings.

2021 tickets will go on sale this fall. If you cannot attend next year, you are welcome to gift or sell your tickets to family or friends. We encourage you to use our Facebook events page to post tickets available. We will happily transfer orders to the new ticket holders.

If you are interested in donating your tickets to our fund for individuals and families that would truly benefit from a safe and positive weekend musical experience, please contact us. We quietly provide this opportunity to those nominated each year.

We hope you can use this gift of time to make new summer memories with your families—we can’t wait to make more with all of you.

Yours,
Hoxeyville

You have one of the best festivals, and I have no doubt everyone will continue to support you next year and in future years to come! I know I will!! Much love ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🕺

Love you all! I applaud you all for making such a hard decision but the correct decision. It’ll just make next years return that much sweeter! Can’t wait 😊

What a difficult decision, and I know how your hearts are torn. It is the right decision, despite how much we will miss our special time in the forest in August. We love you!

I know this was a difficult decision. Thank you for making the responsible choice for all of our friends and family. I love your guys and Team Hoxey.❤️

I was hoping this would be my first Hoxeyville. The universe blessed me with a weekend on those grounds with some of my best friends last month however so im not completely heartbroken. But still this hurts. And I will see you in 2021 Hoxeyville! 💞

Completely understandable. Thank you for prioritizing the health and safety of your community <3 We will see you next year!

Very tough but good decision..next year will be even “sweeter”....🎶🌀💚

Sad to hear but not surprised. Hopefully things will be better next year👍

Understandable. We wish our Hoxeyville family a healthy and safe 2020, and can't wait to see y'all next year!

It's sad but not surprising. I think you made the best decision for fellow Hoxieville-ers. See you in 2021.

You made the very best choice for all of us. Thank you guys for everything, you know we will be at 2021! Love you!💜🙏🏽💜

Big hugs Hoxeyville family!!!! You will be in my heart until we meet again. Then I hope to hug the heck out of you alll in person. ❤️😊✌️🌈Love The Arch’s

I knew this was coming but DANG! We love our Hoxeyville experience every year.

Very sad but understandable😢.

Feeling sad about this but better to all come back safe next year! Sending Hoxeyville love...❤️❤️❤️

We will miss this weekend of pure joy this year and look forward to next year.

So sad but not surprised. This is my favorite weekend of the year. Will be looking forward to next year

Couldn’t make it this year but now very excited for next year! 💪😎

We love our sweet Hoxey family. ❤️

Oh no I was so hoping you could go for it!! Maybe do an October fest.

I knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make reading this any easier. 😢 See you in 2021! 💗 🎶

Can’t wait to be with you all in 2021! Stay safe and healthy out there💜

Sad but totally understand

Thank you for making the right choice❤️

PU 2020, go the f%$k home!
