Not surprised, sadly, but is ANYONE buying this explanation?

The fact that Panic is at 420 hurts, of course. Even so, it seems that they were willing to let us die on the vine.

Also, If you don't know how to back door this forum, you can't get to it. All of the Website is the same announcement page. Oh well is right. Maybe 2020?

That's the spirit! I just hope they find a reputable promoter. Someone who cares about the festival & the fans.

I'm bummed. I was hoping to round up the Gang of Four and relive the Wanee Experience. I guess I'll have to consider the 420 Festival. Jason Isbell will be there and that's reason enough to consider making the trip to the ATL

Beginning in 2019 Wanee and it looks like Peach--is completely owned by Live Nation according to this article.

Butch Trucks-2016
Butch Trucks, the late drummer with the Allman Brothers, said in 2016 that the band started Wanee and a similar Peach Festival in Pennsylvania. Live Nation, a huge concert promotion company, came aboard at one point and the band and promoter split the profits. It started to go south when the band broke up, Trucks said.
“The deal was that, if the Allman Brothers aren’t headlining, then the Allman Brothers lose 10 percent of its ownership every year until Live Nation owns it," Trucks explained. "We only have this year and next year to get the Allman Brothers back together or Live Nation is going to own both of the festivals that I came up with.”

Man, that’s some big dog at the negotiating table type stuff: Losing your interest 10% a year, for not re-forming a band with a history longer than nearly any other performing group. Though it's hard to deny the solid following of the ABB, and the last few years has shown that nothing has (or could) replace them.

I really think LN has been starving the beast. Considering what they’ve been putting into Peach fest, vs. Wanee...

Anyways. It’s over, and we can take some time to cry in our collective beers... and move onward at some point, hopefully with a renewed sense of purpose, and a desire to maintain the shared community.
:idea:

Oh man , if that’s accurate that explains sooo much. LN was essentially letting the festival die. Probably had no intention of keeping it going, and disbanded oh as soon as it had 100% profit control. Goddamnit. What dbags.

That explains why LN has done essentially nothing to try to make the festival any better over the past half decade. Makes so much sense now.

Anyone have Recs for alternative forums? I’m guessing this forum won’t lastforever, would miss the interaction with you folks, I don’t know what I’d do without maestro’s constant optimism to life me up on a daily basis.

The facebook Wanee Festival Family page and BOS/SOS pages (both private) encompass many of the people here.

Even Rivernole. :)
