Bonnaroo NE Canceled
The producers of Bonnaroo NE have announced that this year’s event will not take place. The festival was scheduled for August 8 – 10 in Riverhead, NY, the same town that recently denied permits to the Field Day Music Festival. In a statement released today, organizers said:
Planning for an event of such magnitude as Bonnaroo NE requires the
highest level of cooperation and commitment from everyone involved in
order to achieve success. We have investigated and analyzed the
circumstances surrounding the cancellation of Field Day, as well as the
atmosphere which the cancellation has created. After careful
consideration, we are disappointed to announce that it is impossible
for us to proceed and we must cancel Bonnaroo NE. We have determined
that it would be irresponsible to the artists, to the festival goers,
to citizens in the community, and to ourselves to move ahead with our
plans given the circumstances that now exist.
All ticket holders will automatically receive refunds on their credit cards.
