Poor ticket sales has forced Americana themed music festival Out On The Weekend to cancel its Sydney leg just days out from the event.
Out On The Weekend Sydney was due to take place this Saturday at Bella Vista Farm, with acts like Kasey Chambers, Dawes, Sam Outlaw and Jamestown Revival, but organisers have now decided not to go ahead with the event after “less than anticipated ticket sales”.
“While our expectations were not huge, we are greatly surprised at the lack of sales and cannot proceed both financially or logistically with the number of tickets sold,” organisers said in a statement.
The successful Melbourne leg of Out On The Weekend went ahead as planned this past Saturday.
Out On The Weekend are offering refunds to punters who purchased tickets for the Bella Vista festival, as well as a free ticket to sideshows from international acts. See below for details.
