But you can't blame her this time. I think the problem was that the founder was going through some sexual assault/harassment allegations hence the festival struggling. Hopefully Janet can just book another date.

Also, if you think her demand or lack thereof is an issue, you can also see how the other festivals are shaping up. Essence is probably gonna be OK though.

Completely different demo.

But I’m sure a lot factored into it.

That's my point. That's her main demo and she performed there already, so nothing won't likely really happen there outside of her control.

I just don't want Janet taking heat from the fallout if it isn't warranted, but most articles I've read haven't really emphasized her being a major part of the festival.

I was saying that the articles didn't really emphasize that. But like I said, you can look how that other festivals are shaping up.

Looking at twitter, I don’t think people are blaming Janet... just the entire line up.

I've read Twitter, enough  ad nasuem and the people are blaming the lineup and also Janet, they are saying she was popular decades ago

Co-headliner. Janet did one night, Florence and the Machine did the other. The fact that the whole festival was canceled proves it wasn’t because of Janet because this crowd is definitely Florence and the Machine’s demo, so the fact that sales were still low speaks volumes. You wouldn’t cancel two nights and dozens of other artists performing because of one artist. There are tons of festivals this summer. More than usual. So low sales combined with over saturation sounds valid.

they also spoke on the fact that the lineup was female heavy, and you're right the kids are saving their coins for bigger festivals like Cochella and Lalapolloza or however the hell those are spelled -_-....however moving on I will say this, it disheartens me how readily the kids dismiss someone as great as Janet. Janet is underrated

Definitely wouldn't have been solely because of Janet.  But as the article mentions, they happened to have lined up several acts that already have full performance schedules for the summer.  

And just in case anyone else forgot... FYF is in LA.  Who better to headline an LA festival than Janet Jackson? 

When was the last time a performance she gave in LA did NOT sell out???  A quick clue... it hasn't happened this decade.

For the Outside Lands festival in SF, the headliner are also Florence & The Machine (on Saturday) and Janet (on Sunday). yes The Weeknd is also heralding the opening night (Friday). I want to go to this show but only to see Janet on Sunday.. but they’re only selling 3-day passes for almost $400 EACH PERSON! My wife and daughter would go with me but no way in hell we will spend $1200 to see one 2-hour Janet concert! If and when they open up the 1-day ticket sales then I will most likely do that.. 

hopefully The Weeknd is helping them push tickets more than the FYF Fest

I emailed them about this and told them I only wanna see Janet. This is the email.

    I only want a ticket to see Janet Jackson on sunday but I can't find that option on your site. I don't wanna pay for 3 day passes when I won't be in SF for 3 days. Your site only offers 3 day passes.

Don't argue on social media. Especially with them. Save your time and energy boo.

I dont care about this anymore, it is what it is, I didnt know most of the lineup anyway. Now if Beyonce fans feel the need to sting they might want to check their receipts Janet was here before Beyonce and remains here after, what Janet did was lay down a blue print of how to do it and how to do it right, a blue print followed by others including Beyonce who herself credits Janet. Janet herself said "you can't stay up up up forever" in other words give it a decade or less and some other Black female artist will be bigger than Beyonce
