Nonpoint responded to Spider as follows:

Earlier today, June 24th, The Q&Z Expo Center commented further of the festival, offering:

“For the record the venues land can accommodate up to 10,000 occupancy. This is an OUTDOOR EVENT for 3 Days. We are only selling 20% of that so anyone has the choice and ability to social distance. The Festival is also not called “Herd Immunity” and the name no longer tied to any of our social media or promotion.”

As recently as yesterday, promotional materials marketing the festival as the ‘Herd Immunity Festival‘ were available on the venues Facebook and have since been deleted. See below for reference:

Speaking prior on June 19th, one of the festival’s organizers stated of the event:

“So here it is. A very special thank you to Erik , and all the bands , booking agents , production staff, all of our Q&Z family and friends , and special thanks to my husband Andy for putting up with a crazy women for 6 days non stop.

When the lock down first happened my first thought was OK we can all do 2 weeks, then it went on and on, things were getting cancelled, I started to worry about people not only for this Covid but mental, physical, financial . As humans we NEED other human contact. MUSIC in itself is great, but the live streams as I am sure you all know is just not the same we need LIVE , feel it to the bones, run shivers up your spine MUSIC with people around us. Takes us all away on a trip that unless you have felt it you won’t understand.

So it is OUR honor to bring you this mini fest. Let’s make it a fun , safe weekend, and let’s be kind to each other. Spread the word by sharing the event and invite your friends.”
