Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival, the Rock on the Range replacement that was to take place at Mapfre Stadium on May 15-17, has been cancelled.

Festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents made the announcement yesterday. The company is also cancelling two other spring concerts – Epicenter in North Carolina and Welcome to Rockville in Florida, both of which were scheduled for early May – but plans to continue with its fall events.

Full refunds will be available to anyone who purchased tickets, or pass holders can choose to trade their tickets in for a fall festival or for the 2021 Sonic Temple event, which the company says will return.

An email to pass holders with more details on refunds and exchanges will be sent out within the next couple of days. A statement from the company laid out the thinking behind the cancellations:

We are crushed to say that Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple are being canceled due to the governmental restrictions on mass gatherings.  We respect these directives and recognize they are in the best interest of the greater good, as well as the health and safety of our fans, musicians, partners, and staff.  Before accepting this fate, we worked really hard to try to reschedule the festivals.  Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts, venue availabilities and a number of other factors out of our control made postponing impossible.  Make no mistake, each of these festivals will return in May 2021 bigger and stronger than ever!
