Furnace Fest 2023 ended over the weekend and organizers are already looking toward 2024. Furnace Fest organizers revealed in a new statement that the 2024 may be the final edition of the festival as we know it, or the final festival overall – they're not sure and nobody's made any decisions yet.
Furnace Fest originally ran between 2000 and 2003, and then again between 2021 and (potentially) 2024. Tickets's for Furnace Fest's self-proclaimed End of an Era festival in 2024 are available here, though no lineup has yet been announced.
"Furnace Fest Family: the end of an era is upon us.
"In 2019, four unlikely friends set out to replicate the original Furnace Fest as a one-time resurrection. After postponing twice, FF2021 drew us together when we needed each other and live music most. From the heights of that glorious weekend, we began dreaming about a full four-year replica of the originals. We can't believe we're saying it, but next year, 2024, is the end of an era – completing our vision for Furnace Fest as we've come to know it.
"What does this mean beyond next year? Will the festival end? Morph into something new, something different? These are the questions we are asking ourselves. What do we know? Furnace Fest transcends extended weekends in Alabama because we are a community, friends, and family defined not by differences but by similarities of history and passion.
"Regardless of what happens beyond 2024, thank you for journeying with us. You've brought so much brightness into this season, helping us recover from a global pandemic and far more. Apart from your generous commitment to a dream, none of this would have happened. You found a way to make ten minutes last forever.
"Here's what is next! Starting now through Sunday, Oct. 1st at 6 PM CST – early bird pre-sales to FF2024: The End of an Era are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets will never be cheaper (guaranteed or your money back).
"We love and value you with all the fondness in the world.
"See you in 2024 (October 4-6th)!
