Dear Dead Heads,
Many worlds we’ve come …
We at Deluxe and SKULL & ROSES are sending continual positive vibrations to each and every one of you, your families & friends during this bizarre and unusual time. We hope you are safe and healthy and making your way thru this disaster with as little disruption as possible. We’re all in this together!
Naturally, we are all disappointed not to be together this weekend, but we have several very positive developments that should hopefully brighten your outlook…
SKULL & ROSES IV is OFFICIALLY RESCHEDULED for APRIL 8–11, 2021
Mark your calendars, we’re officially rescheduled to approximately the same time next year. We felt it best to take a full year off to allow the virus to run its course, rather than trying to force an earlier date that may also be negatively affected. ***If you plan to join us, you don’t need to do anything. Your ticket will be honored even if ticket prices increase in the future.***
