Received the following today on this very raining North California day
"The Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival 2013 was another year of incredible music in beautiful Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico.
After a month (or two) of rest, recuperation and reevaluation, we have now finished our year-end accounting and wrap up statements and have updated our website, www.zihuafest.info.
Where you can read the Final Press Release and an honest appraisal from ZIGF Director, Catherine Krantz, in the 2013 Director’s Wrap up letter. She talks candidly about where we are after 10 years of music festivals on a shoestring and what the future holds (and how much of it, is uncertain).
You can see the 2013 Financial Statements, if you want to know what we earn and what we do with it. (We do a lot with very little, but it´s not sustainable.)
We are asking for your input.
Send us a note, a letter, let us know what the festival means to you and if you think Zihuatanejo can or should keep it going.
Keep checking back with the website over the summer, we will be updating it with some great changes, including adding the complete ten years of artist archives, where you can keep up with all the great musicians you have met at ZIGF over the years.Edited: 6:03 pm, May 27, 2013
