Sucks. The line-ip looked especially good this year; I was especially looking forward to Johnny Sketch. I hear the old man who owns the place got cold feet suddenly, didn’t feel enough pre-sale tickets had sold. Too bad… I live 20 minutes away and was beginning to enjoy the Mighty High… despite it’s silly name.

We are hoping the Mighty High will be back next year. I was the person instrumental in helping get them to Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center and would love to see them return. In the meantime….....
Tuxedo Ridge is working on a 3 day music and camping festival at Tuxedo Ridge this year for the same dates. TMH is cool with them trying to fill the void.
