Despite releasing a full lineup of acts, the Nateva Music & Camping Festival will not return for its sophomore year. The Oxford, Maine based festival, which was scheduled to take place from 4 to 7, has been canceled.

“After an epic inaugural year, we have found ourselves struggling at every turn as we have tried to push forward with preparations for this summer,” organizers said in statement. “The challenges in assembling our lineup of bands, a lack of certain venue permits, a very crowded summer festival schedule and slower than predicted ticket sales have all contributed to our decision to cancel Nateva this summer. In the end, it’s all about being able to put forth a first rate event that everyone can be proud of and that our customers can enjoy. We just don’t have the confidence to go forward at this time.”

Refunds in the amount of the ticket face value and per-ticket fees for tickets already purchased will be processed via the credit card that fans made their purchases with.

Gregg Allman, Thievery Corporation, STS9, John Butler Trio were all scheduled to perform at this year’s Nateva festival, as were Bob Weir, 7 Walkers, Guster, Peter Wolf, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Martin Sexton, Ghostland Observatory, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Keller Williams, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Chris Robinson and Jackie Greene, among others.

The statement concluded with, “We are very grateful to the People of Maine, the Oxford Fairgrounds, our Customers, our Bands, and our wonderful Staff, and we just want to say, ‘Thank You’ for all of your support. We look forward to seeing you out and about wherever there is great live music.”
