Flannel undone: ’90s nostalgia festival canceled


The Flannel Nation festival is going back in its drawer.

The ’90s nostalgia concert, which was set to take place this Saturday, August 13, in San Pedro, California, with artists including Everclear, Soul Asylum, Sugar Ray, Candlebox and Filter, has been canceled.

In a statement posted to Facebook Tuesday, Flannel Nation organizers wrote, “We regret to announce that due to ongoing problems and logistical setbacks, putting on Flannel Nation as intended has become infeasible.”

Presumably, those “ongoing problems” and “logistical setbacks” include several bands dropping off the lineup, including Everclear, who wrote in an Instagram post that the Flannel Nation organizers “do not have the adequate means to provide the level of experience our fans expect and deserve while attending an Everclear show.”

Filter and Candelbox also canceled their sets, both citing “unforeseen circumstances.”

Meanwhile, Flannel Nation plans to “retool” and “reschedule” to take place on a new date.
