Live Nation’s End of the Rainbow inaugural festival has been “postponed indefinitely”, though all signs point toward cancellation. The electronic-heavy lineup was announced in February (yes, last month) to go down on May 24th, 25th, and 26th at George, WA’s picturesque Gorge Amphitheatre.
End of the Rainbow, which had enlisted Bassnectar (2 sets), Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, GRiZ, Trippie Redd, Santigold, STS9, and more, was set to replace Sasquatch! Music Festival, which had canceled after 17 years at the iconic Washington venue.
On Friday, the event deleted all social media accounts and sent out an e-mail via Ticketmaster detailing End of the Rainbow’s indefinite postponement (though the Ticketmaster page says “event canceled”). The e-mail explains that due to “unforeseen complications and key artist cancellations”, the event will be moved to an “undetermined date”, however, “original tickets will not be honored for the new date if rescheduled,” eliciting uncertainty.
The event’s official statement reads:
End of the Rainbow was built on a desire to create a special event for all attendees at The Gorge. Due to unforeseen complications and key artist cancellations, we have been forced to reschedule. We will promptly refund all tickets & shuttle accommodations while we work to schedule a new date. We understand how disappointing and inconvenient this is, but this is not the end of End of the Rainbow. Stay tuned.
