End of the Rainbow Cancelled

Sasquatch replacement End of the Rainbow has been postponed indefinitely and deleted any trace of its existence from social media.


After an end to Sasquatch Music Festival that saw many saddened by the news, hope was instilled once again when Live Nation announced that a replacement festival for Memorial Day Weekend was in store. Dubbed End of the Rainbow, the lineup featured electronic heavy hitters like Bassnectar, GRiZ, and Flosstradamus while also bringing hip-hop artists like Lil Uzi Vert and Young Thug to the stage.

Sadly, it looks like there won’t be any magic at the End of the Rainbow this year as yesterday, the festival was abruptly canceled. Bucking the trend of recent festival cancelations, there was no statement from End of the Rainbow itself, as all traces of the multi-day event have been removed. Their webpage remains to be down, social media accounts have vanished, and no official statement was made aside from an email sent by Ticketmaster informing those who had purchased tickets.

On Friday afternoon Ticketmaster sent an email to those who purchased tickets stating:

“End Of The Rainbow event, planned for Friday, May 24th through Sunday, May 26th at the Gorge Amphitheatre, has been postponed indefinitely with an undetermined date. Your original tickets will not be honored for the new date if rescheduled.

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.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and have automatically refunded your order, including fees, (except UPS if applicable), which will appear on your credit card within 7 – 10 business days.”
