Inaugural Vagabond Music Festival Postponed Indefinitely

Written by Marc Zanotti on May 28, 2013

Vagabond Music Festival has been forced to pull up stumps due to poor ticket sales. The inaugural event was scheduled to take place in Kangaroo Valley on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend from Saturday, 8th June to Sunday, 9th June but has now been “postponed until further notice.”

It was only last Friday, 24th May that festival organisers tried to boost ticket sales by converting all first year ticket buyers’ tickets to “golden” tickets, which would would allow its owner entry to all subsequent Vagabond Music Festivals for as long as the festival continued to run.

Now, unfortunately, it looks as though Vagabond Music Festival may never get off the ground. Festival director Adam Taylor has released a statement noting that tickets sales were poor, largely due to scheduling the camping festival during winter:

The reason for cancelling is that the number of tickets sold was far short of the numbers we needed to produce the event. We’ve received lots of feedback and found that the winter timing was less than ideal. It’s just too darn cold for most people.

Regarding refunds, Taylor writes that those who purchased tickets will receive a full refund in the coming week:

“We sincerely thank all supporters who purchased tickets and advise that all tickets purchased to date will be fully refunded within the coming week. We ask patrons to allow for up to a week for their refunds to be processed and advise us of any issues via [email protected]

The inaugural Vagabond Music Festival was to be headlined by The Bedroom Philosopher, The Dead Heads, Fishing, Luke Million and others.
