If you’re like us, you were already thinking about next year’s WayHome Music & Arts Festival. Did we wonder what was up when a “Save The Date” wasn’t displayed at the end of the festival? We did.
Today we received a press release that read “Republic Live will push pause on the 2018 edition of WayHome Music & Arts – Republic Live, producers of WayHome Music & Arts have announced that the 2018 edition will be put on hold.
The most intriguing thing about the release for us, was the indication of more things to come – “a series of concerts and events throughout the summer of 2018, and [we] will continue to expand on the functionality of the privately owned Burl’s Creek Event Grounds venue.”
Republic Live’s CFO, David Cuddy added “The custom-designed 600+ acre site is beyond comparison to others in this area. We have a huge opportunity to develop music and other events at Burl’s Creek and will focus on these prospects over the next year and into the future.”
While we’re sad that we won’t have a 2018 WayHome Festival, we’re excited to see what fun things Republic Live has in store for us.
The first three years of WayHome included headlining performances by Neil Young and Promise of the Real, Kendrick Lamar and Sam Smith,The Killers, Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Flume, Imagine Dragons and the rare appearance of Frank Ocean. We also saw stand out performances by Arkells, Hozier, Vance Joy, Cage The Elephant, St. Vincent and more.
