Porcupine Mountains Music Festival Postponed Until 2022

The Porcupine Mountains Music Festival, presented by the Friends of the Porkies will remain on “hiatus” for 2021 due to issues related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. At the present time the State of Michigan outdoor gathering limit remains at 300. “With so many variables in play, planning to proceed this year turned out to be too much of a gamble,” said Cheryl Sundberg, Festival Director. “As much as we wanted to bring the festival back this summer, we still can’t find a realistic path to making that happen.”

Organizers remain hard at work charting the course of the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival, and have immediately set their sights on 2022. The steering committee is taking this opportunity to re-evaluate and re-organize, so the Music Festival can return strong, sound and healthy…to what will surely be a period of high demand for live music events going forward.

Those holding purchased tickets for the postponed 2020 event (that have not been previously refunded or donated) will once again have the option to roll those same tickets to 2022, donate the tickets back to the music festival, or request a refund. The deadline for refund requests is June 30, 2021. If a ticket rollover to 2022 is desired, there is no need to do anything. Replacement tickets will be automatically sent to purchasers at their address of record when the tickets were purchased and the timing of the mailings will be announced on Porcupine Mountains Music Festival Facebook page and its website Please direct any questions or concerns regarding purchased tickets by email to or by calling 231-409-9035.

The 16th Annual Porcupine Mountains Music Festival is scheduled to return August 26-28, 2022.
