Organizers announced the cancellation today. Scheduled for Sept. 30 through Oct. 2 at Mackay Park in Batemans Bay, the festival was to feature performances by Kenny Neal, John Butler Trio, Jeff Lang, Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson, Cassie Taylor, The Secret Sisters plus many more.
But that’s just another festival lineup destined never to happen. Evidently lack of ticket sales put the kibosh on the event.
From the festival’s website:
“In this current economic climate, unsatisfactory ticket sales for the event have unfortunately made it impossible for us to proceed. We would like to thank all of the media partners, suppliers and loyal supporters for all of their hard work and commitment to this much-loved event.”
The announcement goes on to say that ticket purchases will be refunded to credit card accounts by Sept. 2. Visit BluesFestival.tv for more information.
