Indie Guitar Music Festival 2009 cancelled

Posted: 12th May 2009

Another festival falls in 2009, citing the current recession.

The inaugural Indie Guitar Music Festival, backed by guitar manufacturer Indie Guitars has been cancelled, with the organisers citing the economic climate as the chief reason.

Official statement:

Sadly the festival has had to be cancelled, there are a multitude of reasons why, but fundamentally if we go ahead with it Indie Guitars, who have been solely sponsoring the festival from the beginning will suffer dramatically. Therefore we're forced to make a very difficult decision based on that fact. Elevated costs and a very difficult financial climate have been instrumental in this situation.
As a guitar manufacturer we have ongoing commitments to our dealer base, employees, manufacturing companies etc etc, and we cannot continue to put all of those people and companies at risk, hence our decision to cancel the festival sooner rather than later has been made.

The website states that refunds should be given within the next 30 days.
