PASIC 2020 to Be an Online Event

The Percussive Arts Society (PAS) has confirmed that this fall's PASIC show will be converted to an online event. Of course, this is due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns and restrictions.  

PASIC 2020 was scheduled for Nov. 11th to 14th in Indianapolis, IN. PAS currently plans to bring the event back to Indianapolis in November 2021.

The PAS Board of Directors recently released the following statement:

On behalf of everyone at the Percussive Arts Society, we want to thank you for your ongoing support, and we sincerely hope you and your family, friends, and colleagues are staying safe and healthy throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

After much consideration, the PAS Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to move PASIC 2020 to an online virtual event. Making this decision was not easy, but we believe it is the right decision for the safety of our staff, artists, members, students, volunteers, industry partners, and general attendees.

Every year we eagerly await the middle of November, when we come together and learn from one another, are inspired by one another, see old friends, and make new ones.

Nothing can replace what it’s like to attend PASIC in person. However, we’re excited to reinvent that same unique experience you have come to rely on in a virtual setting. What’s even more exciting is knowing that a virtual PASIC will allow our members around the world, who are normally unable to attend in person, the opportunity to experience the unique gathering and sharing of artistry and innovation we celebrate each year in Indianapolis. We guarantee that the look, feel, and quality you expect out of an in-person PASIC will still be part of your 2020 virtual experience.

PASIC 2020 will be a two-day event held on Friday, November 13 and Saturday, November 14. Registration will open in early September, and Early Bird prices will be $50 for student members, $100 for non-student members, and $175 for non-members. Stay tuned to our social media channels and PASIC.org as we’ll be releasing additional details in the coming weeks.

While no one can predict the future, we remain optimistic that we will all be together in person next year in Indianapolis, November 10-13, 2021, as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Percussive Arts Society.
