Groovefest, which was set to take place at a resort on the Barcelo Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, from Sunday 4th to Sunday 11th September, has been cancelled.
The festival issued an “urgent message” on their website last night (1st September), which said that poor ticket sales had led to the cancellation.
The statement also says that ticket buyers will be offered no refunds, whilst the company behind the festival has now effectively ceased trading and has formally instructed insolvency practitioners to assist in placing the company into liquidation.
Claude VonStroke, Derrick Carter, DJ Pierre, Kenny Dope and many more were all set to perform at the event. You can read the full statement from Groovefest below.
