AJ Maddah has finally pulled the pin on the 2016 version in an almost shambolic week in the life of the Soundwave Festival. Maddah has just said on twitter, “I am devastated to have to announce the cancellation of Soundwave 16 due to poor ticket sales. I am very sorry. I tried my best.”
Focus now turns to the always problematic Soundwave Society membersand those that have bought tickets for the festival in advance. Considering there isn’t money there to pay the bands, we can only hope that Eventopia have held enough back to return punters their hard earned money back in a timely manner. Maddah was again on twitter minutes ago saying “Refunds from point of purchase. It may take a little time, be patient.” I think the fans patience is wearing thin.
Maddah also took a parting swipe at the “internet hate squad and trolls.”
