Dark Star Jubilee Cancels, But Dark Star Orchestra Is Set for Jubilation

THORNVILLE, Ohio — Nearly a year after the COVID-19 pandemic paused all live music events indefinitely, the music ecosystem continues to retool and reform around the nature of the virus. As the Grateful Dead live music scene has adapted over time, torchbearers of the music — Dark Star Orchestra — carry on with modified plans for their Dark Star Jubilee festival weekend originally planned for May 28-30 at Legend Valley just off of Interstate 70 in Thornville, Ohio.

The multi-night, multi-act Dark Star Jubilee as originally planned with camping, has been canceled, and all ticket holders will be automatically refunded within 7-10 days. Making a shift to provide the fans with something that they can count on in 2021, Legend Valley introduces the Dark Star Jubilation: a weekend of socially distanced concert pod shows at Legend Valley on May 28 and 29, with each show featuring two full-sets of Dark Star Orchestra performances.

Each concert pod has room for two to five patrons. The online ticketing page offers each available pod as a selection on the checkout. During the checkout process, a very limited number of socially-distanced campsites will be available, while supplies last. For fans who choose to add camping to their online ‘pod ticketing’ order, the two-night camping fee is added, with each campsite permitted to host a pod crew of two to five patrons only.

The socially-distanced evenings modify the Jubilee to Jubilation as current times and live events have transformed and reshaped according to public health policies with safety for the fans, artists and staff as the primary focus.

Tickets for the Dark Star Jubilation go on sale at 10 a.m. today, Friday, Feb. 19, at http://tkpro.ticketspice.com/darkstarjubilation.
