Yeah.

I think i remember seeing a statement put out after last years, but i still forgot until I went looking after Rising to see if it was something I could make this year. Guess not.

Not sure what happened, finances dried out I guess. I never made it to a Purple Hatters, considered it a couple times but it never worked out. Heard mostly greatly things, some meh things, but either way sad to see yet another fest go.

Was there official announcement of them Axing it, or are we just going by the fact that it should be on by now? After Rising, I was actually considering it This year. I once needed to store my camper on my way home from NC a couple years ago. We were going to suwanee Clusterpluck, and I was driving south right past the park 3 weeks before cluster, and it was well worth the money to not have to drag it 8+ hours, so we called and they had room, but I didn't realize I was pulling in to store it the saturday of PHB. I only drove in and around the loop, but it seemed like a cool vibe and I have only heard good things.

Since it is always the first weekend in June, at this point I would say it is definitely off. The music hall is booked with acts every weekend in June, & the promoter is the same as Hulaween which would have already sold early bird tickets by this time of year.

I’m fairly certain there was an official announcement.

I don't think there was ever an official announcement. Paul had put so much energy into the whole Hula thing but still pulled off a spectacular Suwannee Rising. He recently posting a picture of himself with Rachel. I think the PHB energy was subsumed into Suwannee Rising. Perhaps Margie Weiss (Rachel's mom) and Paul decided to put it to rest. June is hot, and the rain can be a bitch. When it was early May, it was nice, but now there are other things clogging the calendar.

^^ That all makes a lot of sense.

FWIW... and this is STRICTLY RUMOR... I read on the Facebook yesterday that this year is on hiatus, but that the plan is to resurrect Purple Hatter's Ball in 2020. Yah, this is me saying: people are saying
:? :lol: :roll:

AS I said: this is RUMOR ONLY. Heck, that leaves everyone plenty of time to get ready. :D

IMO, that amounts to a long shot. I cannot count how many festivals that were initially labeled as 'taking a year off', that never returned. All the best to the folks involved, I'm not looking to put the whammy on things down the road. May Rachel's memory and legacy never die... For those fans of Purple Hatters Ball, there is still hope. But apparently no event in 2019.

How dare you, Sir! You can not expect to have a music festival on the same weekend as Easter. The good Christian folks over at live nation knew this. And Being that they are good Christians, i expect a 1 year hiatus can not be a lie. For that would be a sin.

Nay!!! A COMMANDMENT VIOLATION!!!

Maybe Both?

Where's the Reverend??
