Sasquatch! Music Festival’s 2nd weekend has been canceled! Set to make history, Sasquatch! planned two different lineups, over two separate weekends, and now some will be left disappointed. It’s possible the second weekend would’ve survived if they had been two consecutive weekends, given that the second set was scheduled on a major holiday. Either way, ticket sales were low enough for the second weekend where staff had to make a decision. This is the statement they released on their website today:
[quote style=”1″ author=”Sasquatch Staff”]The 2nd weekend of Sasquatch! Music Festival on Fourth of July Weekend has been canceled. The traditional Sasquatch! Music Festival on Memorial Day Weekend will continue as planned. A limited number of Memorial Day Weekend passes are still available for purchase at LiveNation.com.
Ticketmaster will refund the credit cards used to purchase passes for the Fourth of July Weekend. For those who purchased tickets to both weekends, half of the total purchase price (which was applied to the Fourth of July Weekend) will be refunded. The discount on the Memorial Day Weekend purchase will remain in effect. For more information, please call Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000.
“The Sasquatch! community has spoken. They continue to support the traditional Memorial Day Weekend event with great enthusiasm. Unfortunately, the second weekend was not embraced. We felt it was better to cancel the new event now and give everyone time to make alternative plans for the Fourth of July weekend. Going forward, Sasquatch! Music Festival will be at the Gorge Amphitheatre on the weekend the fans want: Memorial Day Weekend only,” said Jeff Trisler, President of Live Nation Seattle.[/quote]
Sad news we know, but don’t wallow too long, the artists booked for the 2nd weekend will be finding other venues asap, so stay tuned for more news on where you can catch them. Moving forward, we can now re-focus on one weekend. Get your tickets while you can, these will not last long at all!
