It is with deep disappointment that we share this year’s highly-anticipated Party in the Pines country music festival has been cancelled with very little explanation why. The following is a statement released by the event’s organizers:
“It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that Party in the Pines Music Festival has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control,” Bienville Entertainment posted Tuesday (10/9) evening. “We are working on a plan to compensate ticket holders and sponsors. Details will be posted to our website and social media pages soon. We realize this impacts people in many different ways. We apologize to our supporters and team members who have worked hard to bring this event to our community.”
Robert Morey, the owner of the Bienville Plantation, spoke to the Lake City Reporter about the situation late Tuesday. “There are a lot of forces in play beyond our control we don’t understand,” Morey said. “It will take a while to sort it out … all our funds are held by the artists’ agency. We beg for understanding … This was an event that was so impactful to the community.”
When asked if the event would possibly occur next year, Robert Morey responded, “I can’t be optimistic right now.”
With performers such as Zac Brown Band, Little Big Town, Luke Combs, and Kip Moore scheduled to perform, this was set to be a major country music event. We will keep fans posted with details regarding refunds and artist rescheduling. For immediate questions, you can reach out to the ticketing agency you originally made your ticket purchase at.
