KNOXVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A music festival that had been planned for September in Knoxville has been pushed back to September 2012.
Organizers for the Boom in the Park Music Festival told the The Knoxville News Sentinel was put on hold due to a change in promoters and a time crunch in booking talent for the event, which is only 3 months away.
"That is a short time frame to book great talent," Kim Davis, communications manager for the Knoxville Tourism and Sports Corp. told the News Sentinel. "A lot of times, that's done nine to 12 months ahead of time."
Boom in the Park was part of Knoxville's Boomsday festival, an annual labor day fireworks event that regularly attracts more than 350,000 people to Knoxville. Other activities include rib-eating contest, a family fun zone and shopping from a variety of vendors.
