In a breaking Facebook and Instagram post Monday evening, USC Events announced Lucky Festival 2020 has been canceled, with the company citing “recent events” as the cause.
Regarded as one of the biggest EDM events in the Pacific Northwest, Lucky kicks off the festival season for many. Only a few weeks ago, USC publicized GRiZ and NGHTMRE would be two of five headliners for the event. Lucky 2020 was also scheduled to take place over two days instead of one for its ninth year.

Much to our regret, Lucky Festival 2020 has been cancelled. Due to recent events, we are unable to produce the event as scheduled. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are looking forward to the return of Lucky in March of 2021. Our other events will proceed as planned. If you have purchased tickets online, your refund will be issued automatically following an email from Ticketmaster. For those that purchased hard copy tickets through retail outlets besides Silver Platters locations you can receive a full refund from point of purchase with the return of your tickets. If you purchased tickets through any of the Silver Platters locations please email email@example.com to arrange the return of your tickets and receive a full refund. Tickets purchased onsite at the Tacoma Dome box office can be refunded at the Box Office during business hours of Monday through Friday from 10AM to 5PM, except on major holidays. Additional information can be found at luckyfestival.com Sincerely, USC Events
The news for the cancellation comes amid organizational problems in USC over the past few weeks. After a lawsuit from Insomniac, the fate of USC’s future events has been publicly questioned. While the lawsuit still leaves much to be determined, Lucky 2020 is USC Events’ first large festival to be canceled. Dance Music Northwest is following coverage of the lawsuit as it develops, so be sure to check out additional information here.
As this story develops, we’ll be sure to update with any additional information. We are monitoring for any dance music events that pop up on these March dates.
So far, NGHTMRE announced he still plans on bringing The Portal Tour to Seattle on March 14th. Promising something special, we can’t wait to see what he has planned for the Pacific Northwest.
