See You, Space Cowboy

I write this with a heavy heart. This year’s event did quite well in a lot of ways… except in attendance. It had our highest attendance yet of 1234, however in order to fully cover our costs we were banking on three times that amount. Our headliners didn’t bring in the attendance we were betting on and because of that, Nerdapalooza as a company is left with a sizable debt to the point where we will have to file for bankruptcy. Because of this, and a few other issues, the group has decided to dissolve Nerdapalooza LLC and end the Nerdapalooza concert series.

It’s been six amazing years and we’re so glad that you have been supportive through all of it. It’s hard to see it go after everything we’ve been through, but all good things do have to come to an end. We truly do appreciate everyone who has contributed and attended Nerdapalooza over the years. If you’ve been coming since Tim & Terry’s in Gainesville or if 2013 was your first festival, we love you all the same.

As we owe a sizable debt and would prefer to pay any and all final expenditures, we’re commencing a “fire sale.” We have some merchandise left available through our Bandcamp at incredibly low prices, mainly to just get rid of it. We’ve also put all of the digital albums available for pay what you want, so if you haven’t grabbed any of the albums, now’s your chance. Once the company is dissolved, we’ll be removing the albums out of respect of the performers.

We also have three items up on eBay to hopefully alleviate some of the financial pressure and get money to those that need to get paid:

Nerdapalooza 2011 Main Stage Banner

Nerdapalooza Promotional Banner

And my Nerdcore hat

We may add more items for sale at some point as we attempt to liquidate everything pertaining to Nerdapalooza. If, for one reason or another, you are interested in something not listed here, please reach out to me at hex@nerdapalooza.org and I’ll see what we can do.

As you can guess, no Nerdapalooza makes Nerdapalooza NYC difficult. I’m sorry to have to give you this news but I hope the last few years have been very enjoyable for you and that you walk away from the overall Nerdapalooza experience with a positive feeling. Please let me know if you have any questions I can help with.

Much nerdy love,
