Vineland Music Festival, R.I.P.

Poor Vineland.

Late last year, C3 announced they were going to stage a three-day music festival on a 550-acre farm in Vineland, N.J., on Aug. 8-10. A few months later, the festival was postponed till 2009. Now, C3 co-owner Charlie Jones says, Vineland is “dead.” [Turn It Up]

I don’t feel too confident in next year’s festival scene if we’re already seeing some festivals closing up shop before they even give it a fighting chance.

    I know I have read/written about Vegoose closing this year or not happening rather. This was a huge dissapointment for me as I had plans to be in Vegas for the festival.

    What are other festivals have you seen on the decline?

    Thanks,
    Gary

    Vegoose is the obvious example here but it’s clear that some of the festivals weren’t really selling out (or getting close to it). Lollapalooza seems to be having a successful year, thanks to Radiohead mostly, but yeah Vineland, Vegoose…Virgin? Lots of “v” festies.
