Sunset Junction Music Festival CANCELED!

Sadsies!!!

Sunset Junction has been officially canceled this year!

The city of Los Angeles denied the permit for this year's festival even though organizers raised enough money to cover fees the city was demanding.

Unfortunately, they only had about $100,00 of the $141,000 owed on hand, which prompted the city to deny the proper permits needed.

A lawyer representing Sunset Junction said that a check could be delivered by Thursday, one day after the deadline.

The board's president, Andrea Alarcon, wasn't having any of it though. She said:

"We've given you opportunity after opportunity after opportunity to come clean, to make it right. This is far short to making it right.

This is not an indication to me … that any funds will be available for issuance of a check to support the special events permit. I do see a deposit of $100,000, but that doesn’t mean a whole lot.

Fail me once, shame on you. Fail me twice, shame on me. This organization has failed this city time and time again."

Wow, she isn't messing around! We are sooo sad about this!

This is the first time in 31 years that the festival has been canceled.

What are the Silver Lake hipsters going to do this weekend?!?

As we reported yesterday, the Sunset Junction Festival — a very popular event for the Los Angeles community — has been shut down by the city due to unpaid fees.

But the festival's organizers and supporters are fighting to keep it alive.

Their plan is to raise over $141,978.57 by Wednesday morning. If they can accomplish this, the board that denied their permit will re-evaluate the situation.

In a statement released on their website, the organization tells supporters:

Sunset Junction Festival Denied Permit By The City Of LA

If they were smart, L.A. would just take over the whole damn festival. It would be a win-win for everyone.

There's a good chance that the Sunset Junction Festival won't be happening next weekend. It seems this morning, the city's Board of Public Works denied the festival the proper permits to allow the staging in Silver Lake. Three hours of back-and-forth could not convince the board to vote in favor of allowing organizers to have a permit without paying the $140,000 requested by the city for municipal services such as police protection.

Thing is, the organizers
