It just gets worse and worse for punters involved with The Heatwave Festival. The promoters have just announced that Heatwave Perth show is getting cancelled.
A statement on the Heatwave Facebook page reads:
We regret to inform you that due to circumstances out of our control, HeatWave Perth has been cancelled. All ticket buyers will be refunded fully. MURDA-US Productions apologises to Perth for what is a great loss to us all. We thank you for all of your support, and again sincerely apologise to everyone affected.
Last night NSW Fair Trading worked with Ticketek and the Enmore Theatre to make sure fans were offered refunds if they did not want to attend following the news D12 would not play.
A Fair Trading Spokesperson said today:
NSW Fair Trading contacted the promoter, ticket distributor and Sydney venue. As a result of Fair Trading’s involvement, the ticket distributor and venue each placed notices on their sites advising of the change of line-up and that refunds will be made available to those ticket holders who elect to not attend the concert. The Enmore Theatre also undertook to have notices posted at the venue.
Should ticket holders be unsuccessful in negotiating a refund for the Sydney dates, they can lodge a complaint at http://www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au
