Music event producer Danny Wimmer Presents have announced that they have been forced to cancel the festivals Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple due to the restrictions over public gatherings in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The company shared the following statement: "There are no pre-existing guidelines for what festivals should be doing during this unprecedented time. Like the rest of the music industry, we continue to assess new information and make the best-educated decisions possible.
We are crushed to say that Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple are being canceled due to the governmental restrictions on mass gatherings. We respect these directives and recognize they are in the best interest of the greater good, as well as the health and safety of our fans, musicians, partners, and staff. Before accepting this fate, we worked really hard to try to reschedule the festivals. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts, venue availabilities and a number of other factors out of our control made postponing impossible. Make no mistake, each of these festivals will return in May 2021 bigger and stronger than ever!"
As of now it appears that the Aftershock, Bourbon & Beyond and Louder Than Life festivals will happen, though.
