Earlier today the official ‘So What?! Music Festival’ Facebook released as a statement about the future of the festival, it reads as follows:
“To address the elephant in the room, we wanted to officially announce that we will NOT be having So What?! Music Festival this coming March.
The last 10 years of the festival have been amazing and incredible and even life-changing for our team. We have watched young bands like A Day To Remember, Sleeping With Sirens, Of Mice & Men, Beartooth, and more grow up through the festival and go on to do huge things while also being able to book the bands we grew up on like Taking Back Sunday, The Used, and New Found Glory. We have been able to mix in artists we love that don’t necessarily fit the mold like Riff Raff, G-Eazy, Pouya, Fat Nick, and more.
Our team is spending some time reflecting on the last 10 years and planning the next 10. We are working behind the scenes to bring the next chapter of So What?! Music Festival to life. Stay tuned for announcements.
Until then you can check out Third String Productions(thirdstringproductions.com) for all of our upcoming shows”
Hosted in Dallas, Texas the last 10 years, the festival quickly grew as founder Mike Ziemer and his team worked seamlessly to construct local and international opportunities, making So What?! Music Festival ( formerly South By So What) a desirable venue for musicians and their fans. With a festival having such an impact on the industry, here’s to hoping this hiatus will only be temporary!
