Unfortunate news from the folks over at JamBase. They just posted an update informing fans that their inaugural festival at The Gorge Amphitheater in Washington for July 5-6 has been cancelled. No reason for the cancellation was given but we can only assume that low ticket sales and competition from the High Sierra Music Festival, which has been a west coast tradition for the past twenty-three years may have factored into the decision. Robert Plant, Rodrigo & Gabriela, STS9, Galactic, Railroad Earth and a host of others were scheduled to perform over the two day event. JamBase included a silver lining in their cancellation update with the news that they “are now working with another awesome venue (much closer to Seattle) to host many of the bands originally slated to play at The Gorge Amphitheater July 5-6. While we’re still hammering out the details, keep July 5-6 open on your calendar as we expect to have a new announcement soon. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.” We’ll have more on this story as it develops.
