The Great Escape CANCELLED

August 8, 2008

What the fuck? The Great Escape festival for this year has been cancelled, claiming that lower than expected ticket sales is the reason. I don’t really understand, the festival was months away (October) and I’m guessing a lot more tickets would have been sold but I guess in this current climate where festivals sell out in days or hours I can see why organisers might feel that they would have very few punters arriving after no initial buying spree. I wasn’t even going to this festival but it’s still sad to see a festival with such a fantastic and varied line-up not manage to sell enough tickets while this year’s Splendour, with quite a mediocre line-up, seemed to have no trouble selling out. It’s crazy and a real dissapointment, I hope it doesn’t put off other organisers from promoting slightly more risky line-ups but I have a feeling it might. Sorry to everyone who had tickets this is truly shitty.
