SO HERE is what this particular festival is doing for their having to cancel this year , and I’ll be honest folks pretty much all of my festivals I keep track of are cancelled or postponed to late 2020. If these festivals do indeed get to commence in late fall, we are going to have an influx of festivals going on at once.
It’s going to be tough for all of the bands to get back to rolling when they do, and it’s going to be difficult for them to get to them all this close in time. Right now, I think the ones that have just rescheduled to next year made the smartest choice time wise.
So in 2021, my friends over at Viva Las Vegas have created VLV 23.1! They have branded VLV 23 as “The One That Didn’t Happen”, but I wanted to take this time out to tell you my dear readers about their products they have to offer on their website. They are offering a terrific line of shirts and hats for VLV 23, and I will be ordering MY OWN shirt here SOON.
As promised, we have made the merch available for THE ONE THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN!
You can get it here:
We would love to see you next year so the easiest option is to just carry over your ticket to 2021. There is no need to do anything, we will issue you a new ticket in a couple of months! Choose this option and you WON’T be affected by the upcoming ticket price increase.
Need a refund? Just send your refund request to firstname.lastname@example.org. But please keep in mind that ticket prices will increase for VLV 23.1. Refund requests due by April 30, 2020.
The tracklist is to the left. Please note that the CD makers made a mistake on the tracklist (not our fault) so we are still sending them out and when we get the correct cases, we will send them out to you. The tracklist shown here is the correct one.

For many years VLV has been one of the biggest festival extravaganzas of the year. This is one of the older and more spacious ones that feature Rockabilly, and it is still on my bucket lost to cover live. Many of these great bands that have played there in the past, and the bands on this year’s bill are heavily featured on my website.
