Second installment of Sasquatch! Festival, scheduled for the Fourth of July weekend, has been canceled

The second weekend of the Sasquatch! Festival, scheduled for the July Fourth weekend, has been canceled. The festival will keep its traditional Memorial Day weekend plans.

Jeff Trisler, President of Live Nation Seattle, laid out the details in a press release.

“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.

Ticketmaster will refund the credit cards used for fans who purchased tickets to the Fourth of July weekend. Additionally, a limited number of Memorial Day Weekend passes are still available for purchase at LiveNation.com.
