The festival organizers would like to know if there is community support for the second ticketed event, and have created a survey to seek public input. The survey can be found at burlington.ca/somfsurvey.
The short, one-question survey will be open until Dec. 14, 2017.
BackgroundThe festival has had a paid event since 2015 to support free public performances over four days on the Father’s Day weekend, and help ensure a quality festival for years to come.
In 2017, a second event was added to help celebrate Canada 150 which was very well attended.
Dave Miller, executive director of the Sound of Music Festival, explained the request this way:
“With the success of last year’s additional day on Sunday, June 11 in honour of Canada 150 and the growing popularity of the ticketed Kick-off Concert, we’re hoping to have the Kick-off event for Sound of Music Festival 2018 running for two days instead of one, making it a full weekend experience. Proceeds will support overall costs of the event including stages, security and great musical talent.”
