It is with a heavy heart that we must formally announce that the ChantLanta 2020 Sacred Music Festival is officially cancelled. This has been a very difficult decision process for us, but in light of the evolving public health crisis, and the sentiments of a growing number of people against any large gatherings, it feels to us like this is the responsible thing to do.
However, ChantLanta is not dead! Rather than a big, in-person event, we will be transitioning to an online-only format.
Saturday, March 14th, ChantLanta's Facebook Live!
The Main Stage will be streaming live on ChantLanta’s Facebook page, from noon to midnight on Saturday, March 14th!
This way you will be able to enjoy a lot of the ChantLanta experience from the comfort and safety of your own home. More information about the ChantLanta live stream will be coming out very soon.
Facebook Live Stream Schedule:
12:00-1:00 pm Douglas Johnson Kirtan Experience
1:30-2:30 pm Flavia Krishna & Gershone
3:00-4:00 pm Flying Mystics
4:30-5:30 pm Shonali & the Goddess Choir
6:00-7:00 pm John Stringer & Shift: The Collective
7:30-8:30 pm Ian Boccio & the Spirit Messengers
9:00-10:00 pm Phil McWilliams
10:30-12:00 am Narayani
Unfortunately, this change of format does mean that we have had to close all of the workshops, the vendor market, and the silent auction. There will not be any activities open to the public at the Church at Ponce and Highland this weekend, so please do not go there.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. The pandemic situation has been so chaotic, and just trying to keep up with the best information out there has been one of the greatest challenges we have faced. We are aware that there are lots of loose ends to clean up, and we hope to do that in the coming weeks. For the time being, we want to focus on getting the live stream up and running, and continue our mission of bringing more light and love into the world.
Thank you for reading this, and we hope you will tune in on Saturday and add your beautiful voices to the chorus from wherever you are.
