Natural Lands Cancels Inaugural Festival

This Labor Day Weekend in Alexander, Arkansas, Natural Lands¬†readied itself to host thousands for its inaugural camping festival.¬†Unfortunately, the festival producers announced today the cancellation of Natural Lands. The event’s official statement failed to mention the specific reason behind the cancellation. However, many are speculating that the festival was relying heavily on festival ticket sales and fell short of their goal.

This announcement comes just four days after the festival pulled six of their headliners. Their website deactivated all the links while only posting the cancellation notice. Taking to Facebook the event planners stated:

“Unfortunately Arius, Break Science, Bro Safari, Downlink, EOTO, Must Die! and NGHTMRE will not be attending this year through no faults of their own.”

In their official statement posted to Natural Land’s Facebook page, the planners stated “There was an honest lack of understanding of what it actually takes to turn a dream this big into reality despite all of the planning and double-checking.”¬†

Natural Lands isn’t the first festival to cancel because of funding or lack of planning. Earlier this year Anjunabeats cancelled their Anjunabeach festival in Mexico due to similar reasons. At least they didn’t let everyone travel far and wide just to be met with disappointment (*cough* Fyre Festival). We hope that Natural Lands can regroup and host a festival next year.
