Good Vibrations Festival, after previously stating they would be back at the end of 2012 and moving away from their usual end of summer date (see Pulse news here), have announced that thier 2012 event is now cancelled. In a statement, Justin Hemmes, Good Vibrations Festival boss has said, "We will not be going ahead with the festival this year…we will be in touch in due course regarding plans for 2013."
Hemmes' reasons for the year off:
"Competitive demand for artists resulting in higher artist fees, unpredictable weather and a shifting live music market."
What's going on with Festivals in Australia, we ask? Clearly not all are struggling, with Stereosonic and Future Music Festival having had sell out and record crowds this season. Are we seeing a shift in the market back to the model that was evident before the whole festival boom in Australia kicked off? What are your thoughts?
