The City of Hutto will revisit programming opportunities at a City-owned venue following today’s news from its third-party event management group that their promoter unilaterally cancelled a concert set for this weekend (Dec. 8-9). 

The City contracted with a vendor, The Directors of Chaos (D.O.C.), earlier this year to begin developing and operating concerts at Brushy Creek Amphitheater (BCA) in Hutto. The vendor made progress on some aspects of program development, including venue marketing, website redevelopment, and initial facility improvements. City staff looked forward to this weekend’s event being a launch pad for future programming, with preparations seeming on track the past several weeks and months.    

According to a clarification provided by the vendor to the City of Hutto the afternoon of Dec. 5: "The promoter of the upcoming Spirit Of Orgain 2023, Ellington Music Ventures LLC, made the sole decision to cancel the 2-day event. The vendor indicated this was “due to the financial impossibility of moving forward with the show. All artists were willing and able to perform at the event. But due to the decision of the financier and unbeknownst to The Directors of Chaos, the headliner’s performances were canceled outright, and the sole decision was made by the promoter not to move forward with the event.” 

The vendor is now contacting ticket holders that all tickets will be refunded.  The vendor also stated, “The City of Hutto has been an exceptional partner, from community relations, public works, and the police, and we greatly appreciate our time working together thus far. Getting to meet all the wonderful residents and business owners, and then having the chance to work with members of the community directly has been extremely rewarding and we can’t express how much that has meant to us.”

The City will assess this situation and the management contract. Hutto City Council had a work session planned for this Thursday evening (Dec. 7) about the venue. City leaders will discuss their future vision to effectively develop and prioritize this hidden gem.
