New Dates are Aug 5th-th 2022! Details including New lineup Coming Soon!

To our Wampus Cat ticket holders and fans. We have been working very hard to bring you a safe and enjoyable festival which we hope will become a yearly tradition. The weather for next weekend is becoming more and more concerning. 

With thunderstorms predicted over the weekend and rain predicted on Thursday, we have met with the property owners and have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the festival. We know that there are already rumors circulating about a cancelation. This is not a cancelation. It is just a postponement. 

We know that weather reports are often unpredictable and can change over a week. But for an event of this size, this is not a decision that can wait until the day before the event to be made. We must consider that stage construction was to begin mid-week and that artists and fans were traveling from all over the country. 

Besides the obvious dangers of lightning, there is also the fact that the muddy conditions will make the field unusable as vehicles can get stuck and people can slip and fall. 

We have worked, and will continue to work tirelessly to make this the best experience possible. We are looking at dates in the fall. 

Please be patient with us as we figure this out. We hope to announce the new dates in about a week. All tickets and passes will be honored for the new date. If you cannot make the new date, your pass will be honored at Wampus Cat 2023. Ticket sales are currently suspended but they will be reactivated when we announce the new dates. Thank you for your understanding and we will see you in the fall! 

*Artists and vendors, you will be contact separately with instructions. If you don't hear from us by the end of the day, please reach out to your primary festival contact (in case we miss anyone).*
