Cave Mountain Catskills Music Festival at Windham Mountain, featuring Weezer as the headliner, has been canceled. The festival, originally scheduled for Sept. 15 and 16, has been called off due to unavoidable circumstances arising from ongoing construction and improvement projects at the venue site, as stated in an announcement on the Windham Mountain website.
The lineup included performances by Weezer, Dinosaur Jr., Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Lee Fields and more. The website for the festival has since gone dark.
Concerns were raised by the organizers regarding the potential negative impact of these projects on the event’s overall quality and the experience of attendees.
While the cancelation undoubtedly disappoints the local community, Windham Mountain President, Chip Seamans, remains optimistic about future prospects for bringing world-class music to the area. He said, “While it comes as an extreme disappointment to cancel this event for our community, I remain excited about future opportunities for bringing world-class music to Windham Mountain.”
Individuals who have already purchased tickets will receive full refunds, which will be processed automatically and returned to the original payment method utilized for the purchase.
In addition, Windham Mountain has disclosed that the improvement projects encompassing the base lodge and mid-mountain lodge will persist throughout the summer and fall seasons.
These developments follow the change in ownership of the property, which took place in April.
