Speaking to a global audience of tens of millions, George Clooney, the prime mover behind ‘Hope for Haiti Now’ described the earthquake that hit the Carribean island on January 12 as ‘a tragedy that
reaches across all borders, all boundaries…the Haitian people need our help. They need to know they are not alone.’
A stellar cast of musicians and actors, performing in three locations, included Madonna, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay and Jennifer Hudson. In London, Jay-Z, Bono, The Edge and Rihanna

According to event producers Madison House Presents and AEG Live, a contributing factor in the decision is that, due to various artists’ recording and touring schedules, timing will not allow them
to assemble the cutting edge roster that has been associated with ROTHBURY. Madison House Presents’ Jeremy Stein explains, “The result for this year is that we are not able to move forward with the
integrity and high standards that we demand from ourselves and for the festival.”
Despite the 2010 postponement, organizers intend to move toward continuing ROTHBURY in 2011. According to Stein, “This event is something very special, and we are unwilling to potentially tarnish
what ROTHBURY is, and can become, by working under conditions that will produce anything less than a magical experience. Our efforts are certainly not coming to an end.”
