Guess it is a day to announce cancellations...
Live Nation has just confirmed the rumors that were circulating on the Coachella message board—the second weekend of the Sasquatch! Music Festival, set to take place July 4-6, has been cancelled due to sluggish ticket sales.
“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.The first weekend of Sasquatch! (May 23-25) will continue as planned.
