2nd Weekend of Sasquatch Music Festival Canceled

Posted: Updated:
GEORGE, Wash. - LiveNation announced on Friday that the 2nd weekend of the Sasquatch Music Festival at the Gorge Amphitheater has been canceled. 

The event was scheduled for the Fourth Of July weekend. The usual Memorial Day weekend festival will continue as planned. 

If you purchased tickets to both weekends, half of the total purchase price will be refunded. For more information, call Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000. 

LiveNation said the Sasquatch community supported the Memorial Day Weekend with great enthusiasm, however they said the second Fourth of July event was not well-embraced. 

Jeff Trisler, the President of LiveNation said in a press release on Friday, "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 Amphitheater on the weekend the fans want: Memorial Day Weekend only.”

Trisler said some acts scheduled to perform on the Fourth of July Weekend will be making alternate plans to perform at other venues.
