HOLY HELL! An excerpt from bonnaroo.com
'During the past few weeks, we have closely watched the developments
surrounding the organizational and permitting process for another
festival - Field Day - scheduled for the same site on the weekend of
June 7 and 8. This process culminated with the denial of Field Day's
permits and the cancellation of the festival at this site only 2 days
before it was scheduled to open.
Planning for an event of such magnitude as Bonnaroo NE requires the
highest level of cooperation and commitment from everyone involved in
order to achieve success. We have investigated and analyzed the
circumstances surrounding the cancellation of Field Day, as well as the
atmosphere which the cancellation has created. After careful
consideration, we are disappointed to announce that it is impossible
for us to proceed and we must cancel Bonnaroo NE. We have determined
that it would be irresponsible to the artists, to the festival goers,
to citizens in the community, and to ourselves to move ahead with our
plans given the circumstances that now exist.
Because of the extraordinary amount of planning required for a festival
such as Bonnaroo, we cannot re-schedule Bonnaroo NE for another
location this year.
We would like to thank everyone who has worked so hard to try to make
Bonnaroo NE a reality - our incredible staff; the artists, agents, and
managers who had agreed to perform; those on Long Island who shared the
vision; and the many fans who purchased the tickets.
All ticket holders will automatically be issued a full refund. There is
no need to contact us. It may take a few days for your refund to be
fully processed by your credit card company or bank and appear on your
This decision has absolutely no impact on the Bonnaroo Music Festival
2003 in Manchester, TN, which will take place this weekend. Artists
performing include the Dead, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Widespread
Panic, the Allman Brothers Band, James Brown, Emmylou Harris, and many
others. The festival is completely sold out.'
