FACT Weekender 2014 Postponed

Party crew FACT have announced the postponement of their FACT Weekender event, which was planned for a 1st and 2nd February debut at Cockatoo Island this summer, till 2015, citing ‘production element’ troubles, making the announcement via their website and Facebook pages.

“It is with regret that we announce that the FACT Weekender Festival planned for 1st and 2nd February 2014 will be postponed with a new festival now planned for the 2014/2015 summer season,” write the organisers in their official statement to punters (see full statement below).

“Production elements relating to starting up a new festival have impacted our tight timeframes and our ability to deliver a first-class weekend festival,” they continue. “We are committed to holding an event on Cockatoo Island and thank the venue…for their patience as we confirm our new dates.”

Local promoters Essential Events Management end the missive by assuring fans who had already purchased tickets that they will be “fully refunded with immediate effect.” The boutique EDM event was to mark the launch of the FACT company’s FACT.WORLD.WIDE party brand.

The festival ran into some trouble last month with an embarrassing lineup mishap. The organisers initially announced Radio Slave and Butch as headliners for the event’s debut, later replaced with Adam Freeland after the artists revealed they were unaware of their place on the festival’s roster.

FACT Weekender Postponement Statement

It is with regret that we announce that the FACT Weekender Festival planned for 1st and 2nd February 2014 will be postponed with a new festival now planned for the 2014/2015 summer season.

The management team at FACT Weekender have been working tirelessly over the past few months to coordinate the event. However, production elements relating to starting up a new festival have impacted our tight timeframes and our ability to deliver a first-class weekend festival. We are committed to holding an event on Cockatoo Island and thank the venue, managed by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, for their patience as we confirm our new dates.

We thank all of the people involved so far and look forward to working with you as we build a fantastic festival for next summer.

We also apologies to all artists and ticket holders for any inconvenience. Tickets already purchased will be fully refunded with immediate effect.

See you next year!

Dave & Jody
