Originally scheduled to take place next weekend at Melbourne’s Sidney Meyer Music Bowl, brand new music festival The Bureau has today announced it will be rescheduled and move to a different, more “intimate” venue.
Having already faced issues such as original lineup members Salt N Pepa pulling out days after the first announcement, and backlash amongst the news the festival was offering a $375,000 ticket package, The Bureau has now effectively been cancelled, with organisers promising a redo in March next year (as reported by FasterLouder).
The festival was set to be headlined by American Motown legends The Temptations, ’90s dance pop idols C+C Music Factory and ’80s new-wave locals Pseudo Echo with Charles Bradley, Saskwatch, Asta , Andy Bull and a bunch more also set to take the stage.
The Arts Centre Melbourne, who run the Sidney Meyer Music Bowl, have posted a statement on their website informing ticketholders of the refund policy saying:
“The Bureau, to be presented by Dagger Wolf Bureau, at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl Melbourne, will not proceed as planned on 11 December, 2015. As there are no plans to reschedule the event, all ticket-holders will be offered a full refund. Read on to find out how.”
We’ll update this story when plans for the rescheduled Bureau Festival are announced.
