Vegoose festival-goers will have to look for other venues to haunt this Halloween. The festival’s organizers, Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment, confirmed last week that the Las Vegas festival will not take place this year. According to an article in the Las Vegas Sun the festival’s attendance numbers were uneven, peaking at 72,400 in 2005, slumping to 30,625 in 2006 and climbing to 46,200 last year. However, the President and CEO of Superfly Jonathan Mayers will not put the nail in the coffin, and according to Billboard.biz hopes to pursue other Vegoose models in Las Vegas, just not in 2008.

But all has not gone awry in the world of music festivals. Stagecoach, the country-centric festival in
Indio, Calif., nearly doubled its numbers from last year with almost 120,000 attendees this past weekend. The festival added one more day this year, as well as artists who don’t typically reside under the umbrella of country music including Rissi Palmer, John Fogerty and the Eagles. Event promoter Paul Tollet told USA Today, “We’ve dug deep to find all facets of country music. We’re way bigger than we thought. It’s kind of crazy for year two. These things take a while to become an entity that people know. It took four years for Coachella.”
