This morning, Kaskade announced to social media that he will be canceling his third annual SunSoaked music festival. The shocking news comes 3 weeks before the Southern California event was set to take place.
After two successful years, the producer shared that his team had plans to expand this year's event but their efforts fell short. Controversy around the festival surfaced last week when ticket prices dropped substantially low, infuriating ticket holders that originally bought their tickets for doubled the amount. Due to low ticket sales, Kaskade's team had to resort to cutting costs but unfortunately, that backfired.
His official statement reads:
All ticket holders will be receiving automatic refunds and no action is needed by them. The 2-day festival was set to feature Logic, Quinn XCII, CID, Aokay, Whethan and more.

SunSoaked is cancelled.⠀ ⠀ After two years of an event that was absolutely epic, I wanted to make it bigger and even more expansive. The first two years had places that needed improving so I brought people in to help me execute those changes.⠀ ⠀ But at a little less than three weeks out, it’s become obvious to me that we are falling short, and I’ve been left with an impossible choice. ⠀ ⠀ I appreciate your support, I don’t take it for granted. I hope to see you all soon. 💔⠀ ⠀ All tickets will be fully refunded automatically within 21 days. No action is needed on the customer’s behalf to make this happen.
