For Immediate Release

January 4, 2023



Hot Springs Music Festival Canceled for Summer 2023



The Hot Springs Music Festival Board of Directors have made the difficult decision not to hold a summer festival in 2023. “For the past several months, we have been evaluating different strategic partnerships. Recently, it has become clear that the necessary resources are not in place in time for this summer’s festival,” said David Palmer, Interim Executive Director. The board plans to use the season off to strategically reevaluate festival funding, operations, and programming.  “We will announce future plans as soon as we can responsibly proceed.” Founded in 1996, the Hot Springs Music Festival has mentored thousands of young classical musicians during an annual festival season where they perform side-by-side with professionals in a variety of venues throughout historic Hot Springs.
