Crash Test Dummies will play the Pleasantville Music Festival on Saturday


PLEASANTVILLE, NY – With sadness, Pleasantville Music Festival officials announce that due to a serious health issue within the band, 10,000 Maniacs have canceled the remainder of their summer tour and will not be able to perform at the Festival. This year.

The good news is that the festival was able to quickly add a replacement to the lineup with the booking of ’90s alternative rockers Crash Test Dummies.

Known for their hit songs ‘Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm’, ‘Afternoons & Coffeespoons’ and ‘The Superman Song’, Crash Test Dummies, formed in Western Canada, have been together since 1988.

10,000 Maniacs released a statement. “We are heartbroken to report that due to serious health issues in the band, doctors have advised us not to travel or perform in the near future. We are working to reschedule some shows and hope to see our fans on the road. We ask that our privacy be respected at this time and thank everyone involved for their support and understanding.

“Our thoughts are with the group. We wish them a speedy return to health,” said director Bruce Figler. “The Festival will continue to adapt as we have all learned to do lately. We are delighted to welcome Crash Test Dummies to the Festival.

With the announcement of the addition of Crash Test Dummies, the Festival lineup is now complete, with 18 acts on 3 stages for nine hours on Saturday at Parkway Field in Pleasantville, New York. Doors will open at 11 a.m. and the music will start at noon.

Music is the centerpiece, but there’s plenty more for the whole family to do: crafts, vendors, food court, beer and wine garden and a whole fun section for the children.
