End Of The Rainbow: CANCELED

The inaugural Sasquatch replacement festival End Of The Rainbow has been CANCELED by Live Nation due to “unforeseen complications and key artist cancellations”. Live Nation released the following statement:

End of the Rainbow event, planned for Friday, May 24th through Sunday, May 26th at the Gorge Amphitheatre, has been postponed indefinitely with an undetermined date. Your original tickets will not be honored for the new date if rescheduled.

End of the Rainbow was built on a desire to create a special event for all attendees at The Gorge. Due to unforeseen complications and key artist cancellations, we have been forced to reschedule. We will promptly refund all tickets & shuttle accommodations while we work to schedule a new date. We understand how disappointing and inconvenient this is, but this is not the end of End of the Rainbow. Stay tuned.

Refunds will be issued to the original purchaser within 7-10 business days. Note that if you purchased tickets that were transferred to you, the original refund will go to the original purchase. You will have to seek a refund from the person you bought the tickets from. No word yet on whether camping will also be refunded.

All of the social media accounts for the festival have been deleted or suspended, along with the official website. This doesn’t bode well for the future of this event, and if they were truly planning on rescheduling, then why suspend the website and social media channels?

Regarding rescheduling, the Bassnectar team stated:

Rumors are that Lil Uzi’s attempting to get out of his record label contract by skipping concerts and saying that he is “retiring”. However, losing one headliner shouldn’t end an event which was primarily featuring Bassnectar.

Bassnectar does not appear to have issued any public statements regarding the cancellation, but it is important to remember that Live Nation was producing this event. One of the reasons that Sasquatch failed was due to its takeover by Live Nation: after Live Nation took over, the cost of attending Sasquatch almost doubled, while the selection and quality of artists booked deteriorated. This led to decreased attendance which eventually led to its downfall.

Did Live Nation think that they could book a few big name artists to get as much $ out of attendees as possible? Without much official promo, such as professional marketing videos or staff, it’s hard to see otherwise. Either way, this is a disappointing development for the PNW music scene.

Any additional information that comes to light will will be added to this post.
