Bear Creek Music & Art Festival 2015 Canceled

Long-running and beloved music festival Bear Creek will not take place this year. Organizers have announced the 2015 installment of Bear Creek has been canceled just two months after the initial lineup was revealed.

Here’s the full text of the announcement:

Dear Bear Creek family,

It is with heavy hearts we must announce that Bear Creek Music & Art Festival 2015 has been canceled. Bear Creek was one of the top boutique festivals in the US, and a primary reason it has been so special is because of YOU, our dedicated fans. We spent eight amazing years together filled with beautiful music, dancing, laughter and celebration, and those memories will always live on. In hopes of producing the best possible event for everyone involved, we switched our dates and tried to diversify our lineup to keep things fresh. Unfortunately, things just were not working out in our favor this year and we were not willing to let the show go on unless everything was absolutely perfect. All ticket purchasers will be refunded from point of purchase.

Much love,
The entire Bear Creek staff

Bear Creek usually takes place at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida each November. This year’s festival was moved to early October and was supposed to feature Galactic & Macy Gray, Soulive, Dumpstaphunk and more.

Here’s hoping the festival returns in 2016.
