Im sure everybody remembers the soundfest weekend held at uc last november…this was posted by organiser of the event Brad, yesterday afternoon:
Sorry guys but due to there not being enough payers at soundfest and the U.S bands costing way too much and hitting me up for even more money, theres no money left to pay the bands that actually deserved it!!
This was never meant to happen and I’m so sorry to fuck you all around.
Ive tried to get numerous loans but it isnt happening!
Im gonna have to file for Bankruptsy over something which was ment to be an anual gig!
Oh well – I tried!
It a big task paying 50 + bands a decent performance fee but its quite sad that a place like Canberra still cant get decent crowd numbers to such big name shows.
