UpNorth Music Festival is officially cancelled
Long supposed but only now confirmed is UpNorth Music & Arts Festival’s cancellation. The Michigan based festival announced its inability to go on via Facebook, where event organizers published an announcement stating that the owners of the original venue withdrew their permission for the festival to utilize the space.
As the Facebook statement explains, once UpNorth attempted to instead host the event at its secondary property choice, it was unable to “allocate the personnel needed to hold the event,” ie. EMS, and law enforcement officials.
The festival’s full statement appears below, indicating that ticket holders will be given refunds at the point of purchase.
