WonderBus, an Elevation Festivals production, made a successful maiden voyage in 2019 but was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Elevation president Denny Young spoke about the festival’s 2021 return in a statement. Read his words below:

The inaugural WonderBus, staged in 2019, was a grand slam homerun and it was devastating that we could not run in 2020. We feel confident that by the end of Summer, Ohio will be largely back to normal. The safety of our fans, artists and staff remains our top priority, but with the increased mental health challenges facing each and every one of us during the past year, we believe the time is right to promote live music and the positive impact that this music festival can have on the hearts and minds of everyone in Central Ohio and throughout the midwest.

WonderBus has teamed with the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center’s Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Health to “promote and raise funds for critical mental health initiatives focused on recovery and resilience,” as per a press release. Head here for more info.
