VIDEO: Pasquale Rotella previews new Middlelands venue – Dancing Astronaut
In a recent Snapchat story, CEO and industry legend gave fans a sneak peak at the possible new venue for Music Festival in 2018.
Festival goers were blown away by the incredibly immersive and wildly unique atmosphere this one a kind medieval themed music festival in 2017. However, despite hugely encouraging feedback from attendees and artists alike, local residents complained about the noise in a town hall meeting earlier this year. In response to the public outcry from the community, the Texas Renaissance Festival, which hosted Middlelands in Todd Mission, Texas, decided not to further its support for the festival in 2018.
Never one to quit, Rotella has now gone in search a new and equally appealing venue for the festival next year. In an undisclosed location, somewhere in the middle America, Rotella gave fans a sneak peak the venue.
It is no secret that the current music landscape has become dominated by multi-day festivals and each year ever more music festivals sprout up seemingly out nowhere. As one the most anticipated new festivals on the block, Middlelands seemed to be one concept that actually lived up to its hype.
The medieval themed party was lauded for its peculiarity and innovation in a field that has had issues. With events like TomorrowWorld and Counterpoint closing up shop as well as failed experiments like Fyre Festival grabbing headlines. Hopefully, Rotella will find the perfect place for Renaissance ravers to flock to next year.
