JamBase Live at The Gorge Has Been Cancelled

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.

  1. it did seem odd to compete with High Sierra on same weekend, but that was probably why they were able to get all these bands on that weekend, routed.. Anyway, more people will probably head to Summer Meltdown Festival now, Aug 8-11 just north of seattle.

  2. […] No major surprise here but still news-worthy in our books: the dates for High Sierra Music Festival 2014 have been announced! Returning once again to Quincy, CA over Fourth of July weekend, 2014, this year they’ll have some talent competition with the Sasquatch! Music Festival already announced as expanded into Fourth of July at the Gorge (taking the place of that ill-fated JamBase Festival last year). […]
