No Vineland

(Austin, TX – January 25, 2008) The inaugural Vineland Festival originally scheduled for August 8, 9, and 10 in Vineland, NJ has been moved to early summer 2009. Due to the overall festival traffic in the northeast and big bands touring through this area at the same time, co-producers Festival Republic and C3 Presents have decided to step back and launch Vineland in 2009.

Festival Republic head Melvin Benn and the partners at C3 Presents are spending more time in the city of Vineland, working with the community to address all neighborhood concerns and launch the event in 2009. The co-producers did not want to force music fans to choose between three events on the same weekend. While disappointed with the delay, they believe the overall health of the festival business and the music industry takes precedent over any of their singular objectives.

Both the city of Vineland and the co-producers are committed to working diligently to bring a world class music event to Vineland, one that enhances the community and is a success for years to come.
