According to Billboard,Lang needs another $30 million to make the festival happen and that’s in addition to the other $30 mill that Japanese firm Dentsu had already spent on headliners. Dentsu has since withdrawn from the festival, leaving Lang with a few days to scrape up the remaining cash. Live Nation and AEG Worldwide have already passed.
Sturgill Simpson, Margo Price, & Brandi Carlile were all booked to perform, along with Jay-Z, Dead & Co., Black Keys, Chance the Rapper, The Killer and more.
