In addition, Furnace Fest has also released the following statement regarding the future of the festival itself:

Furnace Fest Family: The End of an Era is upon us.

In 2019, folir unlikely friends set out to replicate the original Furnace Fest as a one-time resurrection. After postponing twice, FF2021 drew us together when we needed each other and live music most. From the heights of that glorious weekend, we began dreaming about a full four-year replica of the originals. We can’t believe we’re saying it, but 2024 is the end of an era completing our vision for Furnace Fest as we’ve come to know it.

What does this mean beyond this year? Will the festival end? Morph into something new, something different? These are the questions we are asking ourselves. What do we know? Furnace Fest transcends extended weekends in Alabama because we are a community, friends, and family defined not by differences but by similarities of history and passion.

Regardless of what happens beyond 2024, thank you for journeying with us. You’ve brought so
much brightness into this season, helping us recover from a global pandemic and far more. Apart from your generous commitment to a dream, none of this would have happened. You found a way to make ten minutes last forever.
