Nateva No More
Promoters have pulled the plug on the four-day Nateva music and camping festival scheduled Aug. 4-7 in western Maine.
“It is with a heavy heart, and a great sadness that we cancel the 2011 Nateva Music & Camping Festival,” said a statement on the fest’s website. “After an epic inaugural year, we have found ourselves struggling at every turn as we have tried to push forward with preparations for this summer.”
The second edition of the festival suffered from booking troubles, slow ticket sales and a lack of some permits. The festival, which took place at Oxford Fairgrounds in Maine, last year featured artists including The Flaming Lips, Furthur, moe., Keller Williams, Umphrey’s McGee, Ghostland Observatory, Jakob Dylan and Drive-By Truckers.
This year’s lineup was to include Gregg Allman Band, Bob Weir, Thievery Corporation and Peter Wolf.
