Seattle’s USC Events took to social media today to officially cancel this year’s edition of their St. Patrick’s Day-themed Lucky Festival.
There’s no doubt that the start of the new decade has been a rough one for Seattle-based USC Events. Last month saw an official complaint filed against them by their former partner, Insomniac Events, over an allegation of a breach of contract and controversy surrounding failed payment for Paradiso Festival. Now, they’ve officially announced that they’re St. Patrick’s Day-themed Lucky Festival has been cancelled.
Taking to social media earlier today, USC Events stated: “Much to our regret, Lucky Festival 2020 has been cancelled. Due to recent events, we are unable to produce the event as scheduled.” The recent events that are mentioned presumably involve the previously mentioned situation that they are involved in surrounding Paradiso.
They go on to offer potential hope for the future of the festival, stating that they “sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are looking forward to the return of Lucky in March of 2021. Our other events will proceed as planned.” The only artists that had been announced previously for the festival that was slated to take place at the Tacoma Dome were NGHTMRE and GRiZ.
Additionally, refunds will be given to all ticket purchasers who planned to attend the event in March. Those who purchased online will be receiving emails about their refunds, while those who bought physical tickets should return to their point-of-purchase to receive their money back except if you purchased at a Silver Platters location. If you purchased at Silver Platters, you need to email email@example.com to coordinate your refund.
