WonderStruck Safe Reopening Powered By Germ-X

WonderStruck in Cleveland will follow the recommended health and safety guidelines put forth by state and county authorities. Additionally, the festival has aligned with St. Louis-based Germ-X to create an aggressive and innovative reopening platform based on the basic principles of responsible health and hygiene. A recent NBC News story ranked Germ-X the #1 Hand Sanitizer “meeting CDC guidance, shared by doctors.”

“We wanted the very best partner to power our safe reopening,” stated WonderStruck executive producer Steve Lindecke. “Germ-X is #1. In our opinion, there is no better product and they will have a heavy presence at the festival.”

“On behalf of the entire Germ-X team, I want to communicate to fans that Germ-X is excited to support safe reopening of music festivals across the country,” said Darren Baker, President and Chief Operating Officer at Vi-Jon, LLC, the maker of Germ-X. “We will be providing complimentary samples of Germ-X to festivalgoers at entry points. We will also be providing other Germ-X products as additional support during WonderStruck.” 

WonderStruck is excited to confirm that University Hospitals will continue as the festival’s partner for medical support and emergency medical services.   

If COVID-19 delays the festival, we have held dates in September. If COVID-19 forces a postponement or cancellation of the July festival, ticket refunds will absolutely be an option for each buyer. 

“Until we meet toward the end of July, we need to continue work together and follow CDC and ODH guidelines,” commented Lindecke. “Wear a maskWash your hands and Watch your distance. And when your name is called, please give careful thought to receiving one of the approved vaccines.”

The Venue

Lakeland Community College provides WonderStruck fans the ideal open-air, outdoor andspacious setting for a music festival with 400 acres of picturesque, rolling, wooded countryside located in Remarkable Lake County, Ohio – Remarkable experiences begin here – and is home to the historic Mooreland Mansion.

WonderStruck in Cleveland, a Northeast Ohio music and arts festival, intends to take place this summer July 24-25 at Lakeland Community College, located at 7700 Clocktower Drive in Kirtland.

The festival (formerly known as LaureLive) has been rescheduled from its original date several times due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Originally set to take place in June 2020, the fest was later bumped to September 2020, and later moved to 2021 as COVID-19 prevented large gatherings around the world.


CLEVELAND, OH (March 3, 2021) – Elevation Festivals, creators and producers of WonderStruck in Cleveland – Cleveland’s music festival and the WonderBus Music & Arts Festival in Columbus, announced today their intention to run both music festivals this summer.

“The United Kingdom plans to fully reopen Great Britain on June 21. Within 72 hours of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement, mega music festivals in Reading and Leeds sold over 100,000 tickets,” stated Elevation president Denny Young. “On Monday, our neighbors in Indianapolis opened ‘indoor’ music venues to a capacity of 50%. And yesterday, when reporting the 2021 Rock Hall Induction ceremony information, Cleveland.com‘s headline read: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony switches venues, could draw its largest audience ever. Each day, we become more confident and believe that running music festivals this summer is possible. If the positive trends continue, reopening is certain. We plan to be ready to safely present both WonderStruck and WonderBus.

Young continued, “We will communicate with the Ohio Department of Health and the Office of Governor Mike DeWine and will coordinate our plans and actions in compliance with state health mandates and protocol. The safety of our attendees, artists, vendors and staff is our top priority.”

Confirmation of Dates

WonderStruck in Clevelandwill shift dates from early June to Saturday and Sunday, July 24-25, 2021. Based on the current information available, we are confident that we can safely stage WonderStruck in late July and not before. By then, we forecast an additional reduction in restrictions and an increase in permitted capacity that will present a festival experience closer to “normal.” In the event of further issues and potential delays in Ohio, we have held dates in September as a contingency.  

The decision to move the Cleveland dates was based on: 1) the most current information disseminated by the Ohio Governor’s office on February 25, 2) the latest data on vaccines and 3) a reasonable projection of time needed to get back to “normal.” Last week, Governor DeWine approved the staging of festivals (and other events) scheduled for this spring with restrictions. He increased the percentage of capacity for outdoor venues to 30%. Additionally, last night, President Biden stated: “This country will have enough vaccine supply for every adult in America by the end of May.”

The dates for the WonderBus Music & Arts Festival in Columbus are unchanged: August 28-29, 2021

Lineup Reveal + Ticket Availability

A total of 52 artists have been booked for Ohio’s largest contemporary music festivals.

“As long as the trend remains positive and we are closer to a broader re-opening of large, open-air, outdoor music, sports and family entertainment venues, the plan is to announce the full lineups for each event at some point next month (April),” stated Elevation chief operating officer Steve Lindecke.

At the time in which all festival details are announced, tickets will go back on sale. If you are a current ticketholder who elected to rollover your 2020 tickets to 2021 and you have a question, please contact info@elevationgroup.com.

Large Outdoor, Open Air Venues

Lakeland Community College will provide WonderStruck fans the ideal setting for a music festival with 400 acres of picturesque, rolling, wooded countryside conveniently located just east of Cleveland, in Kirtland, Ohio. The Lawn at CAS provides the perfect setting forWonderBus fans – 54 acres of scenic, tree-lined property sitting on the banks of the Olentangy River, at the doorstep of The Ohio State University campus and centrally-located to all of Central Ohio. 

Support Mental Health Initiatives

WonderBus is a proud partner with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in support of their work in mental health and suicide prevention. Now more than ever, we all need to understand and address the mental health and strain put on all of us by the events of the past 12 months.  Please take a moment to learn how you can helphttps://medicine.osu.edu/departments/psychiatry-and-behavioral-health 

Here’s What You Can Do

Finally, until such time that it is deemed safe to gather in large numbers, we encourage everyone to follow CDC and ODH guidelines. Wear a maskWash your hands and Watchyour distance. And when your name is called, please give careful thought to receiving one of the approved vaccines.


Dear WonderFul Family:

Ughhhhhhhhhh!  We feel like we have been punched in the gut. This is the announcement we never wanted to make.

However, due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic and the continuation of Ohio’s ban on mass gathering events, we have simply run out of time. We are devastated to tell each of you that we must move our two Summer 2020 music festivals – WonderStruck in Clevelandand the WonderBus Music & Arts Festival (Columbus) – to 2021.

Ticket holders will be contacted directly via email early next week. There will be several options, including a refund on tickets purchased.

Like you, we are massively disappointed that gathering in celebration of friends and live music cannot take place in the current environment. As we all know, at this moment we are engaged in a greater battle on multiple fronts. We cannot forget, we are all in this together. We need to work closely with one another to help put this awful nightmare behind us. And when that happens, we are going to celebrate with one helluva party in both Cleveland and Columbus.

We promise you that our team will work tirelessly over the next year in an effort to deliver two of the best music festivals the state of Ohio has ever seen. On that note, we would ask that you hold the following dates:

Cleveland:            June 12-13, 2021

Columbus:            August 28-29, 2021

We are holding a second weekend later in the year for WonderStruck in Cleveland. Our intention is to run in June as we always have. In the event that the world is not ready for music festivals until later in the summer, we will be ready.

Our team has been in contact with every artist. They are all deeply disappointed as well. We will endeavor to secure as many of the same artists for 2021 that were scheduled to appear in 2020. The Cleveland lineup was our biggest yet! And while we were never able to announce the Columbus lineup, it was going to be epic.

A big thank you to the great team at Lakeland Community College (Cleveland) and our close friends at CAS (Columbus). We could not possibly have two better venue partners. They have stood by our side through all of the global turmoil and each is as excited for 2021 as you are.

In Columbus, as part of our festival there, we partner with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in support of their work in mental health and suicide prevention.  Now more than ever, we all need to understand and address the mental health and strain put on all of us by the events of 2020.  Please take a moment to learn how you can help https://wexnermedical.osu.edu/mental-behavioral

Finally, we are working on a special virtual event that we hope to present at the end of the summer. Stay tuned and stay well.

Kindest regards,  

The Elevation Festivals Team
