Dazed on the Green Music and Cannabis Festival Canceled Two Days Before Scheduled Event
The show will NOT take place this weekend at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds in Turlock. Just two days before the start of the first-ever music and cannabis festival Dazed on the Green, the Medallion Entertainment Group announced on social media that the festival was cancelled.
“Due to circumstances beyond the control of Medallion Entertainment Group and the artists scheduled for the weekend’s event, we are writing with regret to inform you of the postponement of the Dazed on the Green Music Festival and Cannabis Expo which are due to take place September 17-18 at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds in Turlock,” Medallion Wellness President Michael O’Leary said in a statement.
According to O’Leary, the decision was made due to health and safety concerns.
“Despite substantial efforts to salvage the events scheduled for this weekend, we have come to the conclusion that proceeding under the current and unprecedented circumstances would pose a significant risk to the health and safety of all involved in the events. We cannot, in good conscience, expose anyone to unreasonable risk,” O’Leary said.
Specific details regarding these health and safety issues were not announced in the statement or shared with the Turlock Journal.
Tickets for the event continued to be advertised and sold by the promotion five hours before the cancellation statement was released, some up to 50% off with promo codes. According to O’Leary, the promotion will work to offer refunds to all parties involved.
“Our team will coordinate to offer refunds to all guests who have prepaid their tickets, as well as refund all sponsors, vendors and artists who stood ready and willing to perform this weekend,” he said. he declares.
Some of the names scheduled to perform during the two-day festival included Wiz Khalifa, the Dead Kennedys. E-40, Queensrÿche, Cypress Hill, TSOL and George Lynch. More than 100 cannabis-related vendors were also expected to be present at the fairgrounds throughout the weekend.
This is the second time the Dazed on the Green festival has been postponed. The inaugural event was originally scheduled to take place at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds in May, but was moved to this weekend after conversations with local municipalities and law enforcement. In an interview with event producer and promoter Jason Williamson last month, he explained that the lack of security in and around the fairgrounds was the main reason for the initial postponement.
With the event canceled for the second time, O’Leary still insists he and his team can eventually make Dazed on the Green a reality.
“It is our current hope and intention that we can work with the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds executive team, local authorities, and participating vendors and artists to reschedule the Dazed on the Green Music Festival and Cannabis Expo to a later date, ” he said.
