Northwest music fans were heartbroken last year when Sasquatch was officially canceled. Hope was renewed after a three-day festival — dubbed End of the Rainbow — featuring Bassnectar and run by Live Nation popped up as a spiritual successor. Now, though, it looks like End of the Rainbow is DOA before it even got off the ground.
An email sent out Friday by Ticketmaster announced the cancellation. The official website for End of the Rainbow is currently down, social media accounts have disappeared, and a simple message on the Ticketmaster page reads “Event canceled.”
The statement given from the email sent out to fans Friday afternoon:
“End Of The Rainbow event, planned for Friday, May 24th through Sunday, May 26th at the Gorge Amphitheatre, has been postponed indefinitely with an undetermined date. Your original tickets will not be honored for the new date if rescheduled.
End of the Rainbow was built on a desire to create a special event for all attendees at The Gorge. Due to unforeseen complications and key artist cancellations, we have been forced to reschedule. We will promptly refund all tickets & shuttle accommodations while we work to schedule a new date. We understand how disappointing and inconvenient this is, but this is not the end of End of the Rainbow. Stay tuned”
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and have automatically refunded your order, including fees, (except UPS if applicable), which will appear on your credit card within 7 – 10 business days.”
We’ve reached out to Live Nation for a statement, but have yet to hear back as of publishing.
