In a Instagram post today, Seth Troxler and Visionquest announced that their Need I Say More event - which has been held at the legendary Detroit venue Old Miami for the past 12 years - is no more.
The reason behind the cancellation of the wildly successful party remains unclear. In Troxler's post, he chalked it up to “reasons beyond the control of ourselves and the venue”.
Having thrown the annual event every Memorial Day since 2006, Seth Troxler and Ryan Crosson's VisionQuest crew had nailed down a stellar 7:00AM party that became the major highlight for many techno wanderers coming for Movement Detroit. With a queue winding down for blocks beyond the eye could see, most waited hours to enter the no smoke-and-mirrors backyard event fitted with elite sound, world-class DJs, bright vibrations with nothing else needed - it was simply put, pure Detroit essence and joy.
Check out Seth Troxler’s heartfelt note to his fans and collaborators below.
Dear Friends, Despite our best efforts and for reasons beyond the control of ourselves and the venue, it is with our deepest regrets to announce that NeedISayMore held at The Old Miami has been cancelled. It seems like only yesterday when we threw the first Need I Say More on the back patio at Agave 13 years ago. A year later we relocated to the now legendary Old Miami where the party took on a whole new meaning and grew to an amazing capacity. Times have changed, we have all changed. We have loved, we have lost, We have discovered the Beauty and hardships of life. The city of Detroit has maybe taken the greatest leap of change. something that we must welcome even in the pain of loss. We would like to thank all of you who have attended our celebration of life and freedom over all these years. Thank you to all the DJs who have provided the soundtrack to some of the greatest moments of these past 12 years. In the words of Don Shlitz "Know when to hold um, know when to fold um, know when to walk away, know when to run” Thank you for the memories, as fondness never fades. Always and forever, - Visionquest \\\\ Ryan, Shaun, Lee & Seth
