Various Bands Pull Out Of Kentucky Irate Fest Amid Booking Disputes

Isolator, Artica, Belushi Speed Ball, Wake Up In Tsunami, Sero//Tonin, Guerrilla Warfare, Cohen, and Foxbat have all dropped off the inaugural Kentucky Irate Fest. This news follows some apparent booking disputes.

Guerrilla Warfare commented:

“not performing at Irate fest anymore

After too many goofy, passive aggressive, unprofessional, non transparent and immature communications we no longer wish to be associated w these nerds.

They also tried to make us drop the Alpha Wolf, show we announced after never mentioning a radius clause so come to that instead and support 502 Shows LOL

If you’re stressed enough to kick a local u booked off a lineup because they didn’t sell enough tickets for a national festival-

Keep our “can’t tell ya the headliners yet” guarantee-you may need it”

Wake Up In Tsunami also shared a message that was sent to them by one of the festival’s co-partners:

The festival then responded:

“Just so everyone knows how I got the idea to send the message to the guy in Wake Up Tsunami about Amazon. Tracy wants to take no accountability for his actions, but I am a business owner. This festival is a registered LLC and a business. I’m sorry that I can’t have all the bands coming from all over the country and out of the country for free. These decisions were made solely on making sure it runs as smooth as possibly, including financially. Tracy told me he notified the bands they were required to each sell a combined 400 tickets and actually never did so. I trusted his word that he would be holding the locals accountable to promote the event.”

Sero\\tonin issued a statement as well:

“Sero\\tonin will not be playing Kentucky Irate Fest.

With everything we stand for, we cannot justify playing a show that’s going to benefit someone who tried to use people.

Don’t feed the snakes.
We aren’t.”

The festival also had the following to say about bands pulling out of the event:

“🚨🚨 ANNOUNCEMENT🚨🚨

We have had 15+ inquiries from Kentucky bands to fill the holes left from the departing bands at their own discrepancy. We have been in touch with every major agent on this bill and every headliner and national band will be performing as scheduled! Please don’t buy into the lies going around on social media.

Bands no longer performing:

Isolator
Artica
Belushi Speedball
Wake Up Tsunami
Sero//Tonin
Guerrilla Warfare
Cohen
Foxbat

We wish you all the best and sorry it didn’t work out this time.”

The festival is currently set to take place at The MG Prime Entertainment Complex in Louisville, KY on August 26-28.
