The latest blunder in the world of EDM didn’t even get a chance to happen during a festival or on stage with a has-been pop star of yesteryear. This time the festival collapsed before it even opened the gates. Under three weeks away from the start of Moonrise Festival, Baltimore, Maryland, executives within the organization have announced the worst. The plane has crashed into the mountain and there will be no Moonrise this year.
From Steez Promo and Moonrise Festival:
“It is with a heavy heart that we regret to announce the cancellation of this year’s Moonrise Festival. Although we have put everything we had into this event trying to make it happen we have hit a roadblock that we just cannot overcome as the final permit needed will not be approved.
We are devastated by what has happened but with just under 3 weeks out from this event we cannot move forward without this final permit. We want to both thank and apologize to the fans, the artists, all members of the media, and everyone else who have supported this event. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We have battled to keep this event alive and we are absolutely crushed by this turn of events.
Refunds can be received from directly from the Ticketfly webpage or through the outlet that you purchased your ticket from.
We are working on some alternative events in the area that will feature artists who were scheduled to perform on the festival. Please stand by for further information on these events as information confirms.”
