LONG BEACH, CA (CelebrityAccess) — After announcing a major expansion of his curated Sunsoaked Music Festival, DJ and producer Kaskade revealed that the event has been canceled for 2019.
“After two years of an event that was absolutely epic, I wanted to make it bigger and even more expansive. The first two years had areas that needed improving so I brought people in to help me execute those changes,” he said in a post on the festival’s website.
“But at a little less than three weeks out, it’s become obvious to me that we are falling short, and I’ve been left with an impossible choice,” the post continued.
Kaskade went on to thank his fans for their support, writing: “I appreciate your support, I don’t take it for granted. I hope to see you all soon.”
The festival, which was produced in partnership with Live Nation, was to take place on July 13 & 14 with a lineup that included established names in the world of EDM such as Kaskade, Logic, Quinn XCII, Grimes, CID, Brohug, as well as newcomers like Ravell and Wenzday.
The fest, which debuted in 2017 as a one-day event, attracted more than 13,000 fans to Long Beach in its first year, and doubled attendance in 2018, prompting plans to expand the festival for 2019.
Sunsoaked’s expansion, announced earlier this year, including an additional day of music for the main event, as well as a week’s worth of smaller, free, community events in the leadup to the festival.
According to the post, all ticket sales will be fully refunded automatically within 21 days.
