Earlier today, Westfest NZ posted a scathing statement about the financial affairs of Soundwave Festival, which you can read here.
A further update on their Facebook page has issued the following statement about the Westfest NZ line-up for 2016.
The Earlier statement regarding Australian Soundwave Festival were false. Westfest & ODR are both separate entities to Soundwave and apologize for any and all comments that mislead anyone to believe that we are privy to any information relating to Soundwave or it’s operations.
No comment made by ODR, Westfest or it’s Promoter/s in relation to soundwave can be regarded as fact and I personally apologize for any confusion caused.
Westfest were unable to contract the artists necessary for the event to be of usual scale . This had nothing to do with Soundwave.
