For a second time this month, officials from much-maligned Starfest music event in Texas announced that their two-day “pop-up” festival is once again without a venue.
“WE ARE SEEKING A NEW HOME…AGAIN!” the festival’s landing page headline reads.
While we were pleased to announce that Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas would be able to accommodate us for the festival, the management informed us on Monday morning that the facility was previously booked for an outside event on their parking lots that would take up 80% of usable parking for our guests. The team at Lone Star Park has been diligently working with us directly to help facilitate us with other dates in one capacity or another. This unfortunately may cause us to push back our event or move locations. More details to follow, but this Cinderella Story is not over yet! Stay tuned…
Last week organizers claimed to have secured the Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas for their Sept. 8-9 event, but race track officials wouldn’t confirm the event.
The much-maligned two-day “pop-up” festival that boasts Lil Wayne as a headliner first became homeless on Aug. 17 when officials with the city of Plano, Texas announced they were ending the contract between the event’s promoter and a city-owned venue. City of Plano officials notified organizers they would no longer be able to hold their Sept. 8-9 event at the Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve, telling organizers, “We believe the cancellation of this contract is in the best interest of the city and our community.”
