Ahead of its inaugural showing at the Gorge Amphitheater, Beyond Wonderland at the Gorge is officially canceled.
Originally scheduled for June 12th and 13th, this is another on a growing list of canceled or postponed events for summer 2020. Read Insomniac’s full statement below.
Although the flagship Beyond Wonderland typically kicks off festival season in southern California, the short-lived Beyond Wonderland PNW ran back in 2011 at the WaMu theater.
During the same time the Wednesday BW Gorge announcement hit, Insomniac canceled the original SoCal festival as well.
While Insomniac is offering refunds, they’ve also made hanging onto tickets more enticing. All Beyond Wonderland 2020 passes sold will be honored and upgraded at Beyond Wonderland 2021. These upgrades follow: GA upgraded to GA+, GA+ to VIP, and VIP will be offered a complimentary pass. While holding onto tickets for that long isn’t always feasible, the investment could well be worth it.
While this is not the news we’d hoped for, it would not be safe from a public health standpoint to throw this festival. Even as the coronavirus pandemic has left the fate of live music in the air, it’s promising that Insomniac takes the safety and health of their headliners seriously.
Additionally, planning for Beyond Wonderland 2021 leaves us hopeful for a triumphant return to the northwest!
