Subscribed to their mailing list, I received an email from Lexington Music yesterday announcing the cancellation of their next event ‘O in the Park’ being cancelled. It was meant to go ahead on Saturday 21 February. The email and website says:
- It is with great regret that we advise the highly anticipated O in the Park 2009 Festival will not be going ahead.
In delivering a truly amazing location that has never been used for such an event, Friction & Lexington Music have encountered a wide range of operational difficulties that have meant we can no longer proceed with the event. As a result, representatives of both Lexington Music and Friction Event Management felt that if the show was to go ahead it would not meet the high standards expected by patrons of their events.
Friction & Lexington are now working with Sneaky Sound System to ensure that SSS’s long overdue return to the ACT takes place sooner rather than later!
Sneaky will be headlining for Friction & Lexington Music on Saturday 2 May 2009. Full show announcement will be made on 8 February.
Anyone got any inside goss on the story?
