Two years ago, Kaskade came to Southern California and brought us one of the biggest beach parties the coast has ever seen, Sun Soaked. Taking place in Long Beach in July, the festival was Kaskade’s “personal love letter to summer.” The 2019 lineup included Logic, Grimes, Brohug, and of course, Kaskade himself with two sets over the course of two days.
While there seemed to be issues with SunSoaked tickets sales and the price had dramatically dropped – offering 2-day passes for $50 after selling them for $180 – the past few weeks, it still came as a huge surprise when the festival’s cancellation was announced today.
In a letter to the festival-goers and his fans, Kaskade explains that he had wanted to make SunSoaked bigger and better this year, and it seemed like this was unable to happen. As a result of “falling short,” they decided to cancel 2019’s SunSoaked three weeks before the event. Anyone who purchased tickets will get refunded within 21 days, and here is no mention of whether SunSoaked will be coming back in 2020 or anytime after. This is news that definitely puts a damper on July summer plans for all of us. *sigh*
