Last I heard (about a month ago) the festival is a go.
The IRS has frozen the assets and closed down the Sonny Boy Blues Society 
(promoters of the Arkansas Blues & Heritage Festival).

It might surprise you to know that the Sonny Boy Blues society (Helena, 
Arkansas) is NOT a non-profit.  They are a for-profit business.  And the IRS 
didn't like how they'd been filing their taxes.  So they froze the assets of 
the society. And the society website is now down.

However the IRS is allowing the festival to go on in hopes that it turns a 
profit that the IRS can attach.
