Unless you’ve leaving under a rock the last 2 weeks you’ve noticed Blue Ridge Rock Festival has been the topic of A LOT of social media posts. Well the powers at be at Blue Ridge have released a statement following the Chaos and rumors that have been circulating social media. The festival took to social media to release the following statement.
“We are continually working around the clock for you. As one of the few true independent entities remaining, and with just one event a year, the process we are currently working through does unfortunately take additional time. Blue Ridge deeply regrets the unexpected turn of events that led to the festival’s cancellation. The decision, although difficult, was taken in collaboration with an emergency management team, comprised of local, county, and state officials, as well as venue representatives. It was a collective choice made in the best interest of everyone’s safety, including attendees, musicians, and campers. Contrary to some claims, the decision was based solely on safety concerns caused by the weather. Due to a combination of internal considerations and external factors, we are unable to offer more details at this time, but we are looking forward to doing so. We appreciate your patience and understanding and will communicate further information as soon as we are able. We do want you to know that we hear you and understand your concerns. We ask for your continued patience.”Blue Ridge Rock Festival Social Media
