In a separate message, the festival announced: “We want to thank Carson Creek Ranch for always being our beautiful home – We look forward to returning in the future! We will also miss Gramatik and G Jones, who can no longer join us for Finding Euphoria. We are excited to see the rest of the original lineup and our whole family downtown next weekend.”
The Finding Euphoria festival at Carson Creek Ranch near Austin, Texas, scheduled for May 12 with headliners Gramatik, Hippie Sabotage, and G Jones, lacks a permit from county officials to hold
the event but organizers tell Pollstar they’re confident of resolving the issues.
Festival organizers told Pollstar via email on Wednesday: “The Finding Euphoria team met with county staff today and worked through all open items. We are confident Finding Euphoria will be granted the permit next week.”
The event reportedly wants to have outdoor music through 2 a.m., which has caused complaints from locals in the past.
The event has scaled back and was previously known simply as Euphoria Music Festival. In February organizers announced “a new scaled-back concept for 2018” that would offer “a series of music and community events surrounding a more intimate festival.” While there is only one day of music, there is a second available for camping.
The announcement also says it plans to return as a multi-day camping music festival in 2019.
The local Austin-American Statesman reported Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty taking a “stern tone” with organizers, reportedly saying, “Listen man, there’s a real clear road map as to how to get here on this deal,” Daugherty said. “So if this is your deal, get it done.”
The paper also reported Travis County Fire Marshal Tony Callaway saying, “From what was submitted Thursday and Friday, they’ve definitely shown a good faith effort in starting to put together realistic plans, but there’s many voids in there.”
One booking agent contacted by Pollstar said he was unaware of the festival having any permitting issues.
Last year’s event had four days of music including major artists such as Post Malone, Pretty Lights, Wiz Khalifa, Zeds Dead and many others April 6-9 according to Pollstar’s records.
