Insomniac’s brand new Middlelands Festival located in Todd Mission, Texas will already be dealing with an obstacle when looking to plan for next year’s event.
The Texas Renaissance Festival has officially decided, due to complaints in a town meeting, that they will not be able to hold Middlelands there next year. With more than 60,000 people in attendance, multiple neighbors in the surrounding neighborhood complained about the event being disruptive.
Beverly Welch-Steadman, a woman that lives close to the festival grounds describes the festival as “a nightmare..When I called Saturday and they said it was going to go on Sunday I said, ‘I’m just going to kill myself.'”
Texas Renaissance Festival manager Terre Albert also brought to the community a statement which claimed, “TRF is always looking for new ways to bring fun and magic to the Houston area, which is why we partnered with Insomniac, C3 Events and Live Nation, to create the Middlelands music festival on our grounds. Middlelands was a great success and brought over 60,000 people to the area from all over the country and the world. However, after a meeting with executive leadership and based on Texas Renaissance Festival’s overall mission, we’ve have made the decision to not move forward in hosting the event again.”
