Earlier this week word spread that rural Pennsylvania’s Karoondinha Music & Arts Festival — featuring headliners like Chance The Rapper and John Legend as well as locals PVRIS and Ripe — had been cancelled due to a combination of slow ticket sales and rising costs.
Now, Deep Roots Mountain Revival has decided to honor all Karoondinha tickets at their own festival. Deep Roots is taking place around the same time (July 20 to 22) and located roughly 200 miles southwest on Marvin’s Mountaintop in Masontown, West Virginia.
The three-day fest features a slightly different lineup than Karoondinha, offering up Brandi Carlile, Dr. Dog, Lettuce, JJ Grey & Morfro, Moon Taxi (pictured above), Sam Bush, Yonder Mountain String Band, White Denim, and others.
“Deep Roots Mountain Revival just learned that Karoondinha has canceled their event and we realize that it’s the ticket holders who are the ones that suffer,” says Deep Roots founder Claude Ryan in a statement. “We never want to see another event fail, or watch the fans of the festival scene feel as though they received the short end of the stick. In an effort to shine a positive light back into a scene that is near and dear to our hearts, we will be honoring all Karoondinha weekend and single day passes at this year’s Deep Roots Mountain Revival.”
Here are more details on the exchange from organizers: “Day pass ticket holders may choose to attend either Friday or Saturday… All three-day and four-day Karoondinha ticket holders will be able to exchange their passes for three-day general admission passes at the gate. Single-day pass holders may exchange for any of Deep Roots Mountain Revival’s general admission one-day passes. Karoondinha ticket holders will still be required to purchase parking passes for the event at the gate, or in advance on the Deep Roots Mountain Revival website. The festival is also in the process of creating day of show upgrades for those who wish to join them for a full weekend, or want to enhance their experience with one of the festival’s VIP Packages.”
