There is no easy way to put it - the news out of Walker, Minnesota is not pleasant one bit

We've all enjoyed summer so far - no sizzling temperatures,  concert events scheduled in North Dakota are still on - and music fans are pumped. It is no secret that so many people are extremely passionate about their favorite bands, and make plans to ensure they will be at the show. Today there are tears in the eyes of many regarding Moondance Jam 2024 in Walker, Minnesota.

Moondance Jam Announces Lineup Changes Due to Unforeseen Circumstances

Here is the sad news Moondance Jam posted on their Facebook page yesterday:

"With a heavy heart, we announce that due to unforeseen circumstances based on the present economic climate, Moondance Jam will need to make changes to our lineup as we now will only highlight our Regional acts who always put on a great show for our Jammers, while keeping our dates as scheduled from July 18-20, 2024.

For over 30 years, Moondance Jam has been a beloved tradition in Walker, MN, providing a platform for outstanding music performances in a beautiful setting. However, despite our best efforts, we have not met the necessary financial thresholds to produce a festival with national touring attractions this year. In light of these financial hurdles, we cannot proceed with any national touring lineup.
We understand the disappointment this news may bring to our dedicated supporters, and we share in those sentiments. Our commitment to delivering an exceptional experience remains steadfast, and with this in mind, we are bringing back Camp Moondance happening on the same dates (July 18th-20th in Walker, MN) showcasing regional talent, who embody the spirit and passion of Moondance. Please check our website for updates on the line-up to be announced soon.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. All purchased tickets will be honored, and we hope that you will join us in making the best of this year’s event. We remain committed to preserving the magic of Moondance and look forward to your continued support.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this challenging time. ❤️

Was I being too dramatic by saying there were tears in some people's eyes?
Here is an example of what I wrote above - according to valleynewslive.com "...I’m angry, I’m hurt, I’m depressed. I had tears in my eyes. This is a festival me and my dad go to, who I grew up listening to rock music with, we’ve been going the last 4 years. It’s a tradition,”
Sad news indeed.
