’90s Alt-Rock Festival Flannel Nation Cancelled After Everclear, Candlebox, & Filter Drop Out

UPDATE: The festival has now been cancelled:

We regret to announce that due to ongoing problems and logistical setbacks, putting on Flannel Nation as intended has become infeasible, therefore we are forced to make the tough decision to cancel this weekend’s event. Our goal is to retool and reschedule the event and tickets will be honored for the new date when announced.

Everclear, Filter, and Candlebox have dropped out of this weekend’s LA-area ’90s alt-rock festival Flannel Nation. Everclear announced that they were dropping out via Instagram, citing “[in]adequate means to provide the level of experience our fans expect and deserve while attending an Everclear show.”

The band’s full statement is below:

It has been brought to our attention within the past week that the event organizers of Flannel Nation Festival in San Pedro, CA, scheduled for this Saturday, August 13th, do not have the adequate means to provide the level of experience our fans expect and deserve while attending an Everclear show. With this in consideration, we have decided to pull out of the festival. Please stay tuned in the coming weeks as we will be announcing a proper Los Angeles performance where we plan to deliver the type of performance that exceeds our fans’ expectations. Refunds may be requested at the point of purchase.

Filter and Candlebox then announced they were dropping out as well.

On August 5, Flannel Nation announced they were changing venues, though the fest will still be held at the Port Of Los Angeles in San Pedro on August 13. Other listed acts include Candlebox, Soul Asylum, Filter, Cracker, Fastball, Sponge, Star Zero, and X Wire. Sugar Ray were also added as “guest headliner” to the lineup after the initial announcement.
