Wow, didn’t expect that one. This year looked like it had amazing potential. Now I’m just curious as to why this beautiful festival got canceled… Hopefully it’s not a question of anyone’s health. ReGen aside, sure would be nice to see Sector 9 at CounterPoint in Atlanta late September!

This is a bummer for you folks out west…...hope this is not due to anyone’s health. Rumors are that ticket sales were not doing too well….....at least we get 2 nights at Electric Forest. See everyone there!

I don’t know if anyone remembers but the years leading up to the 1st Bonnaroo were some of the best for festivals. But once Bonnaroo hit, festivals were no longer a secret. The summer following the inaugural Bonnaroo had a festival every weekend…well a festival was scheduled almost every weekend. But because of this over saturation of festivals many had to cancel because of poor ticket sales —> because of this and other reasons the smaller scale festivals were unable to compete and became a thing of the past. Anyone remember Berkfest? For years the music fans who stayed current got to enjoy these festivals. But then Bonnaroo showed festivals were commercially viable causing them to be part of pop culture. Now people go to these things cuz they think they will be cool —> ala Coachella & Hollywood’s finest. Its a shame another festival with much potential like re:generation had to be cancelled.

While Horning’s is indeed a great venue for shows / festivals, their policy of no re-entry and no single date tickets during the entire event doesn’t work for a lot of people. I know people who stopped going to see SCI there because they couldn’t commit to all three days, or they would have needed to leave during the three day event for a variety of reasons.

To Grey, you are right about Bonnaroo making festivals a pop culture thing, but smaller festivals are cropping up still these days. Check out Rootwire, Werk Out, Come Together (in Ontario) and a bunch of other smaller ones. They’re all awesome!

This is devastating! and by the way Hornings does not have a “No re-entry” policy. You can leave and come back. This is the worst news EVER!
