It appears that poor ticket sales have plagued FYF Fest and Goldenvoice believes it is passed saving.
Goldenvoice released the following email to hopeful festival goers:
After much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel FYF Fest 2018.
Our team of many women and men have worked tirelessly on this event for many years but felt unable to present an experience on par with the expectations of our loyal fans and the Los Angeles music community this year.
We will be announcing some special local shows soon, featuring some of the amazing artists from the 2018 line up.
Ticket purchasers will automatically receive full refunds, including all service charges, beginning this Monday, May 7, 2018. There is no action necessary on your end to receive a refund. You will receive an email notification from Festival Ticketing once your order is canceled and refunded. Please allow 5 to 7 business days for the funds to appear in your bank account.
For any questions or concerns regarding your refund, please contact Ticket Purchase Support firstname.lastname@example.org or 855.278.6345. Ticket Purchase Support hours are Monday-Friday 9:00am - 5:00pm MST.
Janet Jackson, Florence + The Machine and Future were the scheduled headliners, but fans will have to get there fix elsewhere.
