The music festival The Festival For Humanity was supposed to take place in Vernon, NJ on Memorial Day Weekend. That’s not gonna happen now since funding fell through, or maybe it was lack of interest? Artists like Coolie Ranx, The Misifts, The New Pornographers, Third Eye Blind, Sister Hazel, Cracker, Soul Asylum and other bands were supposed to play. Perhaps there will be another event like this in the future, when there is more funding? Read the statement below:
Those Involved With The Festival For Humanity,
It is with sadness that we inform you that financing for the Festival for Humanity has collapsed and the Memorial Weekend Events have been canceled. The founder of the festival, Anders Thueson has been doing everything in his power to secure financing and as of this late hour, the Festival For Humanity will not take place.
“The concept of Festival for Humanity was a Celebration of Art and Music to Benefit Charities of Suicide Prevention, Health and Nutrition. I strongly believe we will find a way another way to help those in outreach, education, awareness and funding, this I pledge,” says Thueson.
All paid ticket holders will be notified and refunded.
