Nateva promoters cited a number of things such as, “challenges in assembling our lineup of bands, a lack of certain venue permits, a very crowded summer festival schedule and slower than predicted ticket sales,” as the reasons behind the decision to cancel the festival.
“It’s all about putting together a first rate event that everyone can be proud of and that our customers can enjoy,” said a singular post on the festival’s website signed Nateva Festival. “We just don’t have the confidence to go forward at this time.”
It has been made clear that all those who have already purchased tickets to the festival will be refunded their money in the amount of the ticket face value and per-ticket fees.
Whether or not the festival will be attempted next year is not mentioned. We can only hope it will.
