The Disintegration of Zep Fest
Posted by Ally Schweitzer on May. 16, 2011
Zep Fest, the Led Zeppelin-themed rock fest previously scheduled May 27-29 at National Harbor, has been canceled. We found out this morning. But it seems some of the booked entertainment hasn't been informed yet.
This is just awful! An event such as this one a 3 day Zep Fest that has been promoted for nearly one year on Facebook suddenly canceled in less than two weeks before it hits the stage is outrageous!
Many fans and the bands set aside time, money and put a lot of their soul into going to DC for Memorial Day weekend and partake of this fest to suddenly have their dreams shattered in a heartbeat with NO reasons made public by the promoter as to WHY so suddenly they called it off.
If they knew that ticket sales were poor they should have put an end to this festival a long while ago not wait until two weeks before show time. Some people will never recover from this fiasco & will always have a bitter sweet feeling about the not official start of summer Memorial Day weekend.
Wishing everyone that was going to attend that they get their money refunded & quick.
I think it will be very hard for people to trust another of these so called FESTS that are started on Facebook.
