Day Journey, the brand new competition from Insomniac initially scheduled for July 4th weekend at Berth 46 in San Pedro, Southern California, has relocated to the Lot at Hollywood Park, roughly 20 miles inland northbound subsequent to SoFi Stadium.
Insomniac revealed of their press launch: “After tickets bought out so rapidly for each days of the competition, we realized that so many extra needed to bop with us over the 4th of July weekend.
“A possibility opened up at a model new, bigger venue so Day Journey Competition is shifting to a brand new location — The Lot at Hollywood Park, situated adjoining to SoFi Stadium. DTF will take over the huge, lovely lakefront grounds, with loads of room for us all to bop within the sunshine with a fishbowl in hand. This variation will enable us to have a extra spacious, improved structure, in addition to launch a restricted quantity of extra tickets.”
The transfer, nevertheless, has left many, many potential attendees bitter. The promised “lakefront grounds” will doubtless be inaccessible to attendees, and the precise scale of the lake is far much less interesting. (Photos by way of @bbbbork on Twitter)
Along with the apparent variations within the venue look, there’s the difficulty of lodging. The lengthy distance from the unique venue to the brand new one will current important challenges to attendees coming from out of state who’ve booked resorts or AirBnBs nearer to San Pedro. To not point out July 4th weekend will imply costlier trip shares from their resorts to the brand new venue in the event that they select to maintain their tickets.
All this being stated, it’s extremely unlikely that that the swap was made with malice intent, or in an effort to “bait and swap” attendees as some have posited on Twitter. Likewise, such a drastic transfer appears counterintuitive to points of easy attendance, as Insomniac has the power internally to restrict ticket gross sales based mostly on capability.
Learn among the responses to the transfer from Twitter customers beneath. Day Journey or Insomniac have but to reply to any of the grievances expressed.

Lyft, Uber & yellow cabs aren’t working correctly for the time being & you count on your headliners to now journey 20 miles out of city from the unique venue? That’s some grasping shit. Okay
