Shepparton’s 3630 Festival has been cancelled this year for ‘unforeseen circumstances’. The festival, which last year featured a line-up of artists like Angus & Julia Stone, Clare Bowditch, Muscles, Briggs, The Verses, Ryan Meeking and many more, is usually held mid March. However, organisers have put out a press releasing stating that the festival will not be going ahead this year. The following was posted on the festival’s website;
It is with great sadness that the 3630 committee must announce the next 3630 Festival is to be postponed until 2013 due to unforeseen circumstances.
After 10 months of hard work including the highly successful launch party and high school battle of the bands tour; at this current time 3630 cannot match with the success of last year’s events.
This is due to a number of factors including a small budget, change in stakeholders and over commitment from the headline act which has lead to them having to pull out at the last minute.
The festival is said to return in 2013, however minimal information has been released.
