  • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 

    Start.ca Rocks the Park has been part of London’s summer celebrations for seventeen years. Our festival is a staple in the London community where we pride ourselves on our social and economic benefits, including raising over $3.5 million for local charities. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponing of our festival until July 14th – 17th, 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last few weeks we have been monitoring the situation closely and have determined that, along with government mandates in Ontario, it is no longer safe to move forward with our festival in July. The well-being of our fans, artists, staff, vendors, partners and the surrounding community is our number one priority. These are without a doubt crazy and unprecedented times but as a city and community, we will all get through this. Our company has been in the entertainment business for over ninety years and we are no stranger to challenges. We will overcome this and grow from it, but now is the time to be safe, smart and look out for one another by protecting everyone else who supports us.

    As organizers, we have taken everything into consideration in order to make out a plan of action going forward. We have worked very closely with our artists and are thrilled to announce only a few changes in our line up for 2021.

    Please read carefully for line up / ticketing related questions per night:

    • CASH purchases made directly at the box office will need to be returned for cash once the box office re-opens (as non-essential businesses open back up, please follow government updates)

    This process takes time and all parties are working incredibly hard to expedite this process to ensure everyone who is entitled to a refund receives one as quickly as possible. Again, we are saddened by this decision, but look forward to seeing everyone July 14th to 17th, 2021 at Start.ca Rocks the Park.
