Tough Break, West Coast Unwashed: No Vegoose This Year

Aat this point, you’re probably so sick of festival news (although the lineup for the London Auto Show has been announced!) that a festival un-announcement at least represents something of a reprieve. So! The Las Vegas mini-Bonnaroo Vegoose seems to be kaput, with attendance in recent years never quite reaching the heights of its 2005 inaugural run. To the organizers’ credit, Vegoose ran a slightly different show, with the festival itself running during daylight hours and ticketed concerts taking place in local casinos and theatres at night. Clever enough, but sort of crappy for the dude who spent all day in the sun and then is forced to buy another ticket to check out Dave jamming at the Hard Rock. The acts that have played the festival during its short run are relatively impressive, with Daft Punk bringing its giant pyramid last year. But if you were hoping to check out Widespread Panic this year in Vegas, you may want to start seeing if you can change your flight to another city. [Las Vegas Sun]
