News of yet another festival cancellation has surfaced as Centre Hall, Pennsylvania festival Karoondinha will not take place as planned next month. Yesterday, June 27th, the event’s organizers took its entire social media presence offline, and then issued a statement confirming that the gathering’s debut edition has been canceled.
“We are deeply saddened to announce that Karoondinha Music & Arts Festival will not take place during the scheduled dates of July 20-23, 2017,” the statement begins. “From the beginning, our vision was to create a unique destination experience that brings music fans and artists together for an amazing weekend in a beautiful setting. Our entire team has been working tirelessly to have the event take place as planned, but have found it necessary to reschedule.”
Porter Robinson, ODESZA, John Legend and Chance the Rapper were among the headliners slated to perform at the first-ever Karoondinha. As the festival’s organizers began dumping tickets in frequent flash sales, it is suspected that production costs outweighed sales dramatically enough to prompt the cancellation.
At this time, spokespeople on behalf of Karoondinha have not announced a date range, location or any other information for a makeup event.
