In the wake of many eager festival attendees getting denied at the entrance by fire marshals, Ultraworld Productions and Steez Promo have announced that the 2013 edition of Starscape Festival will be moved to a bigger, better venue. The Baltimore based festival, which this year featured headliners like Wolfgang Gartner, Chase and Status, and Flux Pavilion, has simply outgrown Fort Armistead Park, and new venues are being actively pursued. Both production companies claim to be working with Baltimore City Officials to bring smaller events to the beloved Fort Armistead Park, and promise that future venues will be just as praised. Read the full statement, taken from Starscape’s Facebook page, below:

Ultraworld Productions and Steez Promo would like to thank everyone that attended Starscape 2012 and made it an incredible event, as well as the small army of people that worked tirelessly to produce such an incredible experience. After selling out the event for the third year in a row, it has become clear that Starscape has outgrown Fort Armistead Park. While the past fourteen Starscape events have been some of the most beloved events in the history of the EDM scene, the physical layout of the park is not conducive to the current size or future potential of the festival. We have been feeling this for several years, and actively started searching for a new venue for Starscape earlier this year. You can trust that when we settle on a new facility, it will be every bit as great as Fort Armistead.

Given our twenty year history of park events in Baltimore, we are continuing to discuss options with the City to hold smaller events at Fort Armistead or other parks and we are thankful to the City of Baltimore for allowing us to . In the meantime, stay tuned for the big Starscape announcement which should come later this year, and get ready for the next chapter of the Starscape history!
