Citing insufficient space for setup both on and off stage, IN THIS MOMENT called off their Friday night performance (July 14) at the Upheaval festival in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Instead, Michigan’s native Dylan Delato took over the stage with a DJ set, as reported by Local Spins.
Just a couple of hours before they were due to perform at the two-day festival, IN THIS MOMENT shared an announcement via an Instagram Story, writing: “Dear fans and friends, we regret to inform you that we will not be performing at today’s Upheaval festival. Despite driving 600 miles, we arrived to find no available space for IN THIS MOMENT to set up on and off stage. Our contractual agreements promised us the necessary space, but unfortunately, it was not provided. We are deeply saddened by this turn of events.
“Rest assured, we will return to Grand Rapids very soon and organize a show where we can see all of your lovely faces. Your understanding and support mean the world to us. We love you all.”
Each day was scheduled to feature fifteen bands, with standout performances anticipated from LAMB OF GOD, HALESTORM, BRING ME THE HORIZON, FALLING IN REVERSE, and ICE NINE KILLS.
