Live Oak Music Festival is reimagining its annual event to be enjoyed at home this year.

KCBX Central Coast Public Radio says they will be going forward with plans to host Live Oak Music Festival “On the Radio” Friday through Sunday.

What would have been the 32nd year for the event was originally scheduled for this weekend at El Chorro Regional Park in San Luis Obispo.

That has now been postponed until 2021.

The station plans on having live and local performances as well as more than 30 hours of music recordings from past festivals.

While there is no live audience this year, festival organizers say they're still working to make sure everything is as sanitized as possible for those who are performing and putting together the event.

"We are all masked up except for when we're on stage. Everybody is in different locations so we don't bring in anything. We're sanitizing the stage and bringing groups in and out one at a time so we don't share each others germs," explained
Paul Irving, Owner of Big Big SLO Marketing Services.

Sunday, the Live Oak team will be streaming until midnight.

The streaming fest aims to raise money for KCBX, the local public access radio station.
