The Beasts of Burden announced today that the Department of Holidays, Festivals, and Celebrations has approved their application to change the date of their annual music festival, The Beats of Burden.
In a written statement released to all Park media, the Beasts’ lead singer Alfredo Ox said the group made the application in June when they realized that this year’s concert would take place before some of The Park’s residents returned from estivation.
“This has always been an inclusive festival and we were shocked to learn that if we kept the original date, our estivators would not have the chance to attend. We feel very fortunate that there was an opening in The Park’s calendar and we are grateful to the Department of Holidays, Festivals, and Celebrations for honouring our request,” the statement reads in part.
The Beasts of Burden established the festival just two years ago to support The Park’s refugees and the three-day event has become one of our most popular celebrations.
The Beats of Burden Music Festival will take place 18-20 September 2015
