THE BEYOND 2002 Festival Registers Huge Losses Despite Presence Of Heavyweight Acts
The Beyond 2002 Super Festival, which was held on April 13-14 at the Bicentennial Park in Miami. Florida, reportedly drew 5,000 people on the first day and some 2,000 attendees on the second day—a number that fell far short of the 20,000+ that the event's organizers, Todd Ross, 24, and Justin Moss, 23, had hoped for. A private investor who provided the bulk of the more than $4 million needed to put on the festival reportedly lost the bulk of the funds when the crowds failed to pick up.
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, THIRD EYE BLIND, SLICK RICK, DOUG E. FRESH, THE OFFSPRING, LUDACRIS, and AFRICA BAMBAATAA were on Saturday's bill. ICE-T, SNOOP DOGG, OUTKAST and FATBOY SLIM were scheduled to appear Sunday.
