The inaugural Middlelands festival gave us an amazing experience of four days of camping and three days of electronic dance music on five different stages. It was a great success and brought over 60,000 festival-goers to the area from all over the world. However, Texas Renaissance Festival (TRF) have made the decision to not move forward in hosting the event again.
Pasquale Rotella, founder of Insomniac Events, has issued an official statement, and assured his fans that he have plan to return.
“We were very surprised and disappointed by the decision announced by the Texas Renaissance Festival (TRF) to no longer host Middlelands (MDL) at the Texas Renaissance Festival Fair Grounds. From the beginning, MDL producers set out to create a safe and enjoyable experience for both attendees and residents in the surrounding neighborhoods, with hopes to stimulate the growing local economy. Contrary to news reports, the producers of MDL traveled to Houston for the Town Hall meeting but were subsequently told it was cancelled by TRF officials. We fully appreciate the beauty of Todd Mission and the nearby areas, and were prepared to implement residents’ feedback in order to transform MDL into a valued community event. An astounding 66,000 guests attended the inaugural MDL festival, with many sharing their positive experiences. To our fans, rest assured we plan to return.”
Pasquale Rotella shared few stories today on his official Instagram account, filming the new location for the festival. He said he may found the perfect venue for Middlelands but he’s not 100 percent sure, and wants from you to reach out to him on social media, and let him know what you think about the new location.
Rotella added that he’s also looking at three other places, so stay tuned he’ll keep you updated. Check out his Instagram stories to see the videos.
