Despite many fans with hopes to the contrary, moe.down will not be revived this year.
When the band announced that there wouldn’t be a moe.down in 2015, the first time in 15 years, fans were devastated. .rons started to have hope for the festival to return in 2016, especially after new owners bought the ski slope in Turin where the festival has been held most of its 15 years and expressed interest in making sure moe.down came back to their venue. But it turns out those hopes were misplaced.
Here’s the full text of the post on the moe.down Facebook page:
We appreciate so many fans reaching out to tell us how much they miss moe.down music festival, and we know there have been many questions on whether or not we have plans to bring it back this year. At present, we do not have any plans for moe.down 2016. The moe.down discussion on bringing it back in the future is very much alive between all those involved. In the meantime, we will be announcing a few other special summer shows in addition to Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre – we hope to see you there!
Here’s hoping that 2017 will see the return of the festival that many moe.rons refer to as, “My home, my heart, my best friend.”
