Northern Lights Festival Boreal is cancelled for 2020.

Northern Lights Festival Boréal (NLFB) is the signature music & arts festival of Northern Ontario, taking place in Sudbury since 1972.

The organization has made the inevitable decision to cancel its festival scheduled for July 9-12, 2020, due to the COVID-19 crisis, and the evolving health and safety concerns in this unprecedented time. NLFB cares deeply for the health and safety of its diverse and enthusiastic community.

NLFB has been actively monitoring the situation, and seeking expert advice from a variety of sources, including the Public Health Sudbury & Districts, the Canadian Centre for Disease Control, and the Canadian Live Music Association.

NLFB’s top priority is and will remain the health and safety of its participants, stakeholders, volunteers, staff and patrons.

For those who have purchased advance tickets, NLFB is offering three options.

Option #1 is converting the ticket purchase into a charitable donation.

NLFB is a registered charity and will issue a receipt for 100% of the value.

Option #2 is rolling over the ticket to the 2021 edition scheduled for July 8-11. Patrons will simply be given access to this edition instead.

Option #3 is a full refund.
