Sasquatch Music Festival cancels Fourth of July event

Memorial Day weekend festival continues as scheduled

Staff reportMarch 21, 2014 

The Sasquatch! Music Festival has cancelled the fledgling Fourth of July Weekend festival announced earlier this year. The traditional Sasquatch! Music Festival on Memorial Day Weekend will continue as planned, and a limited number of Memorial Day Weekend passes are still available for purchase at “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.

Live Nation said some of the acts scheduled to perform on the Fourth of July Weekend will be making alternate plans to perform at other venues. Information will be released as available.

Ticketmaster will refund the credit cards used to purchase passes for the Fourth of July Weekend. For those who purchased tickets to both weekends, half of the total purchase price will be refunded. The discount on the Memorial Day Weekend purchase will remain in effect. For more information, call 800-745-3000.
