With the news coming in last week that SandTunes was to be cancelled after the unsuccessful move from Coolangatta Beach to Metricon stadium made the festival untenable.
Organisers of SandTunes released a statement last week with the cliff notes stating “But the reality is that without sand between our punters’ toes, the very notion of the beachside festival in a stadium meant low sales and we had to make the hard decision to cancel this major Gold Coast event.”
Festival X promoters have sent out the bat signal to affected punters and offered a discount to SandTunes ticket holders to rescue their summer music plans, “We heard the news that SandTunes on the Gold Coast has been cancelled. We are setting up a code with Ticketmaster for our Brisbane show, offering a discount of $20 for those affected by this show cancellation.”
It’s not long now until Festival X takes to Brisbane Showgrounds with big names like Calvin Haris / Armin van Buuren / Lil Pump / Alison Wonderland / Anna Lunoe / BadRapper to name a few you can see the full lineup here Festival X Organisers have told us that all artist have their Visa’s approved and flights booked and will be headed down under shortly.
