2020 Fire In The Mountains Festival Postponed To 2021

This year’s Fire In The Mountains festival in Moran, WY has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event will now take place on July 23-25, 2021.

Organizers commented:

“To the Fire In The Mountains Family –

As the team behind this event, we too have been paying close attention to the ever-evolving presence and impact of COVID-19 in the world at large, and all of the changes and concerns that have come along with it.

As we have monitored all of this, with regular discussion among ourselves, our friends and our artists, it started to become clear over time that postponing the event was the only responsible option. Since that time we have been working diligently to get our ducks in a row on rescheduling.

This event is a passion project of ours, and it revolves around the community it brings. As such, the safety of that community – our attendees, performers, staff and neighbors will always come first. With all of the uncertainty around this very real threat, we would want neither to risk the safety of our people, nor to exclude those who didn’t feel comfortable making the trip out in the current climate.

While postponing the event comes with a heavy heart, as it has been seeing so many other events, artists and businesses that we appreciate being affected, we are very glad to say we are still going to hold this edition of Fire In The Mountains.

Fire In The Mountains will now take place on July 23-25 2021. It will still be held at our beautiful location at Heart Six Ranch, in the Teton Wilderness. Ivar Bjornson has remained on board to Guest Curate the event and present his showcase “On Wings Over Utgard”, and Enslaved is still coming to headline the event.

From what we have seen in our communications thus far it looks like most, if not all, of the original lineup will follow suit as well – as well as all of our esteemed workshop presenters (even a few we hadn’t gotten to announce just yet 😉 ).

All tickets purchased, as well as any add-ons or accommodations booked through us at http://www.fitmfest.com will be fully honored for the rescheduled event, and ticket holders will not need to do anything to retain their tickets.

We appreciate the support of all of our ticketholders now more than ever, as we had already invested heavily into the planned event for this summer when things started to change. Any ticketholders with questions or concerns can certainly reach out to us at info@fitmfest.com .

While we are saddened to see the event postponed, we are so happy to still be bringing this thing to life. We will all be in need of an escape when this is all over, and we now look forward to this more than ever.

Everyone please, stay safe, stay healthy, consider the safety of those around you. We can all work to get past this, and when we do, we will see you in the Mountains.

To 2021!

Sincerely,

Fire In The Mountains Team”

Enslaved To Headline 2020 Fire In The Mountains, Guitarist Ivar Bjornson To Curate The Festival

Enslaved have announced that they will be headlining next year’s Fire In The Mountains festival. Guitarist Ivar Bjornson has also been recruited to serve as a curator at the event, which is set to take place at the Heart Six Ranch in Moran, WY on July 11-12.

Bjornson commented:

“Our Northern hearts rejoice as we are part of this announcement for Fire in the Mountains 2020! To come to these beautiful parts of good ol’ Vinland and headline an outdoor festival is nothing short of a dream come through. We will present a very special show and cannot wait to share this weekend with the other artists, audience and the hard working folks behind the festival! To the mountains!”

“It is a massive honor to be asked to be the first guest curator for the Fire in the Mountain festival. I have decided to name my curator showcase “On Wings Over Utgard”; inspired by the thematic from the coming ENSLAVED album. Modern man is a being that has forgotten how chaos, darkness and decay are as important and beautiful parts of existence as all the bliss, youth and light we over-feed ourselves in the (dis-)Information Age. What better scenic metaphor to realize this part of the overall vision than at Fire in the Mountains; surrounded by wild, chaotic nature. Where life is how it was meant to be; uncontrolled, balanced and unified. I cannot wait to start showing you all the artists I am inviting to sonically and lyrically illustrate all this! Thank you Shane and festival team for giving me this opportunity.”
