New York's upcoming BONNAROO NE FESTIVAL has been cancelled after
organisers feared a repeat of the chaos surrounding last weekend's (07JUN03)
Field Day event.
August's (03) Bonnaroo NE event, due to feature Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and
Dave Matthews, was scheduled to take place on the initial site of the Field Day
festival in Suffolk County, Massachusetts, but after organisers of that event
were denied a
permit, promoters have decided not to go through the same hassles.
Field Day organisers were left scrambling to find a new venue at the last
Bonnarroo boss ASHLEY CAPPS says, "We assessed the situation, and based on
what we saw Field Day go through and seeing so much uncertainty in terms of
being able to avoid the same problems, we felt like it was in everybody's best
end it now."
