Rothbury Will Not Take Place in 2010
"Rothbury will not take place this summer, according to The Detroit Free Press. According to the article, “After an initial embrace from residents near the Double JJ, rumblings of discontent began to emerge in recent months. Officials with Grant Township were considering the adoption of ordinances that would have forced a 1 a.m. noise curfew.” The environmentally-friendly festival debuted in 2008 at Rothbury, MI’s Double JJ ranch featuring the likes of Widespread Panic, Dave Matthews Band, Trey Anastasio, Phil Lesh & Friends and Gov’t Mule. The festival faced scares in late 2008 and early 2009 after the Double JJ ranch’s owners went bankrupt, but returned to the site this past summer. Last year’s festival drew even larger crowds with a lineup that featured The Dead, String Cheese Incident, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and the Black Crowes."
There have also been rumblings of a hoax... I'll keep you updated.
