Another One: Imagine Music Festival 2021 Has Been Cancelled
At this point in time, music festival cancellations are disappointing, but not surprising. Not too long ago, Buku and Bonnaroo were just two of many of the events that have been canceled in the last few months. Today, Imagine Music Festival has also announced that it will not be taking place due to severe weather. The festival was supposed to be this weekend, September 17-19 in Chattahoochee Hills near Atlanta, Georgia.
The official statement posted on social media reads:
We are devastated to share this news, however mother nature leaves us no other option but to cancel the Imagine Music Festival this weekend… The weather forecast continues to become more ominous with varying percentages of rain, strong wings, the potential for lightning and very severe weather. Our public safety team, nationally acclaimed meteorologists, local authorities, and our team of experienced directors have determined severe weather for Chattahoochee Hills is imminent and will cause extremely hazardous conditions that are unsafe for guests and staff.
This is absolutely devastating for the whole team who has put the event together, as well as attendees who were looking forward to going to Imagine. The crew continues with solutions for ticket-holders to either roll their pass over for 2022, or request a refund.
Imagine ends their statement saying:
All of our resources will now be released and have the potential to help in the rescue and emergency disaster relief efforts in Louisiana and Texas. We hope this will be a benefit from the misfortune of having to cancel. ‘We love you and it shows!’ We will see you in 2022!
Although heartbreaking, we trust in Imagine’s valiant efforts and decision to reschedule the festival for next year. You can read the full statement below.
