Over the course of the last week, the organizers of iJAM Music Fest have had several meetings regarding iJAM Music Fest and the current state of affairs throughout the country and the world. Four days ago, Governor Ron DeSantis placed the State of Florida on an official Medical State Of Emergency. Furthermore, many large-scale events across the nation are cancelling resulting from the growing concern for their attendees.
Though it is an incredibly tough decision to make, the organizers of iJAM Music Fest have decided it is best to postpone the event, stating, “Based on Governor Ron DeSantis’ decision to place the State of Florida on an Official Medical State of Emergency, we’ve decided to postpone the festival because our patrons, artists and staff are of the highest priority”. As information comes in daily, we recognize the growing concern and more importantly the concerns we all have for our families. We are planning for a future date in cooperation with our amazing partners to have an incredible multicultural music festival for the City of Orlando and visitors coming from around the world to enjoy.
The organizers, GRAMMY winning and globally recognized Morgan Heritage d/b/a Heritage Concerts Inc., have been in constant communication with their corporate partners. They have heard their concerns regarding this issue, as many of them are global brands.
“In consideration of what our sponsors are dealing with across the world, this has only added to our decision to postpone the event. As the organizers, we want to be thoughtful and prudent while being sensitive and responsible towards our attendees, which included international visitors from around the world. We have taken into consideration the international implications, as Orlando is one of the most visited places on earth. More importantly, as residents of Central Florida and parents to a child with major respiratory issues, we as Morgan Heritage could not in good conscience continue to encourage families to travel at this chaotic time”.
