Lawsuit over pop-up club at Mystic Lake dropped

- Nomadic Entertainment Group LLC voluntarily dropped a federal lawsuit against Dakota February Events regarding the cancelation of Club Nomadic at Mystic Lake.

Nomadic Entertainment Group filed the dismissal on Tuesday. Fox 9 reached out to the company's legal team, but received no comment.

The company built the pop-up concert venue Club Nomadic for entertainment during the week of the Super Bowl. Florida Georgia Line, Gwen Stefani, Kygo and The Chainsmokers were among the acts scheduled to perform at the venue. Then on Jan. 12, Dakota February Events, owned by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, announced the shows had been canceled. Instead, the performances would be held at venues at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel.

In response, Nomadic Entertainment Group filed a lawsuit, alleging the cancellation “was done so that Dakota could avoid its obligations under the Agreement and exclusively profit from a replacement event inside its Casino” that Nomadic helped promote and advertise.

All the concerts, except for Ellie Goulding, took place at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel from Feb. 1 through 4.

Two days after the Super Bowl, the lawsuit was dropped.

Willie Hardacker, general legal counsel for Dakota Febraury Events, released the following statement regarding the dropped lawsuit.

“We are pleased Nomadic voluntarily dismissed the federal lawsuit. The court rightfully had concerns about whether it had jurisdiction over this dispute. Dakota February Events, LLC has claims against Nomadic, and we will pursue those over the coming weeks.”
