WAX:OFF – Global Market hits Festival

Reported by Tristan Ingram on May 20, 2008




It is with sincere regret that organisers of Wax:On Live, due to be staged at Lotherton Hall in Leeds on May 31st have announced its cancellation.


The festival fell victim not to poor ticket sales or lack of support and dedication, but to the credit crunch that has the UK in the grip of an economic stranglehold.


“On forming the company there were two streams of investment scheduled in order to ensure the event was viable in year one,” event promoter Dan Blackledge explained. “This morning we have been informed that due to circumstances in the global financial market place and its knock on effect, the event has become unsustainable.”


“We send out most sincere apologies to all of you that have bought tickets. We threw everything we had at the event to try and make it go ahead and we’re really disappointed we couldn’t see it through,’’ Dan carried onto say.


Wax:On have instructed all ticket agents to give full refunds to all ticket holders. The Wax:On club nights will continue to rock the cities of Leeds, Newscastle and Brighton.
