I apologize for all the bad news today. It turns out that Sasquatch Music Festival has cancelled their second weekend. The festival was supposed to take place from July 4th to July 6th while the first weekend is (still) taking place on May 23rd to May 25th. Apparently there wasn’t enough interest in the second weekend with it happening on July 4th and about a month and a half after the first weekend. It is a shame that this has to happen, but in their eyes, they rather tell you sooner than later. This gives you the option to change your plans. Here is the official announcement:
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.
Some of the acts scheduled to perform on Fourth of July Weekend will be making alternate plans to perform at other venues. Information will be released as available.
