In a statement released this morning, it appears the organizers of the Squamish Valley Music Festival have decided to cancel the event. This was one of the largest music festivals in B.C. with over 120,000 people in attendance last year.
Here’s the official statement:
“We have made the extremely difficult decision to not proceed with the 2016 festival, due to take place in August. This decision was not made lightly and we sincerely apologize to all the people this decision affects: the fans, artists, industry partners, corporate partners, suppliers and all of our supporters within the community of Squamish.”
There hasn’t been an official reason as to why the event has been cancelled. We’ll let you know when we hear more. –Boitano
