Natural Land Camping & Music Festival is set to go down this weekend in Alexander, Arkansas — but there will be some major acts absent from the lineup.
First up, the special fireworks closing set from NGHTMRE won’t be popping off as planned, because he won’t be there. Natural Land has confessed that he and some other acts, Arius, Break Science, Bro Safari, EOTO, Downlink, and Must Die!, will not be attending this year “through no faults of their own.”
Natural Land doesn’t come out and say exactly what’s going on here, but it sounds like organizers are having trouble affording some of the top-tier acts. In lieu of recent changes, the festival is offering “added benefits” to tickets and lowering rates on all tiers moving forward. Attendees should be on the lookout for an email with additional information.
The music festival still boasts 80+ artists, 90+ hours of music, and 1,000+ acres of natural beauty. The 2018 lineup includes 12th Planet, Barely Alive, Crankdat, Virtual Riot, Wuki and many more. Despite all the hiccups, it sounds like this could still be a really good time!
