“One of the things that is hardest about having a dream, is mustering the courage to go after it and taking the leap," Yonder Field president and general manager Stacie Darr White said in a statement. "And for as much love and momentum that we have for this project, there are always speed bumps along the way."
The organization, which has secured two adjacent performance areas, parking and vendor space on land close to Interstate 26 in Bowman, presented two events so far, one on Aug. 21, the day of the total eclipse, and one on Oct. 13 and 14 featuring handcrafted beer.
"We worked hard to build out two major festivals in October to bring great music and experiences to South Carolina," White said. "Unfortunately, the festival we had last weekend took substantial losses due to low attendance. Because of this, it has impacted our ability to proceed with this weekend’s Agrisonic Festival. We have worked tirelessly the past few days to try to move forward, given our current situation. It is with a very heavy heart that we have to cancel the Agrisonic Festival this weekend."
The bands Dispatch, Dead 27s, The Infamous Stringdusters, Leftover Salmon and The Wood Brothers had been slated to perform.
White said Yonder Field would continue to operate, presenting concerts and festivals in 2018. She thanked bands and fans for their support and apologized for the bumps in the road.
"Please know that we value all of these relationships and our hearts are sincerely broken, too," she said.
