Torii Beach Rocktoberfest canceled

The three-day Torii Beach Rocktoberfest that was scheduled to run over the weekend beginning Friday was officially canceled Tuesday afternoon.

Organizers at Torii Beach say in a statement that “Unfortunately, due to the forecasted incoming typhoon this weekend, we are forced to cancel what would have been the most awesome event of the year.”

They add that there’s no rain date for the event, as events this size have too many moving pieces to schedule alternative rain dates. Those include contracts with bands, sound support, food vendors, staffing, and equipment rental such as generators, containers, and much more.

“We are very disappointed, as we were looking forward to hosting this event and making it bigger and better than ever before,” organizers say on their webpage at http://www.toriimwr.com/
