The organizers of Orlando, Florida’s Rebel Rock Fest have had to make the unfortunate decision of canceling this weekend’s festivities, due to damage from bad weather over the past week.
The promoters made this statement:
„We are deeply and utterly devastated to announce the cancellation of this weekend’s Rebel Rock Festival.
„After this week’s severe weather and despite our crew’s effort to improve the ground conditions around the Main Stage over the last three days, our venue partner has deemed the area unfit for artists, crews, vendors, and fans. We were able to get in the Taco Metal Party on Thursday by using the B-Main grounds while continuing to work on the conditions of the Main Stage grounds. The amount of water dropped this week simply proved to be too much to clear to provide you a safe festival environment and experience. We can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is to see two years of work be tackled by mother nature.
„We’ll share more information about refunds as soon as possible.“
The festival was plagued with COVID-related problems in the lead up to the festival. Limp Bizkit dropped off a few weeks ago, after canceling all of their tour dates. Incubus was announced as their replacement, only to themselves cancel earlier this week due to COVID-19 concerns. In recent weeks, Devildriver, Light the Torch and Emmure also canceled. Volbeat had to pull out due to travel issues. The full lineup could be seen in the poster below.
Refund information is not yet available.
