Hey guys, as you know, I’m here in KL as press for Future Music Festival Asia #FMFA2014.
Bad news just in. Future Music Festival Asia 3rd day is cancelled.
Refund details to be announced within 1 week. Ticket buyers are urged to logon to www.futuremusicfestival.asia for refund details.
There are 5 rumored deaths due to drug overdose at ASOT yesterday, but only 1 official death on festival grounds is reported with cause of death being investigated.
My friends on the festival grounds are witnessing mass protests to this situation right now. I’m waiting in my hotel room with other media people, hoping for brighter further updates.
Official statement on the Future Music Festival Asia Facebook page HERE.
I’m not a huge trance and EDM fan so of course I’m really disappointed not to be able to go for the one day that I’m most looking forward to. Totally bummed that I won’t get to see Macklemore, Pharrell Williams, Eric Prydz and Porter Robinson now, but I don’t think it’s the organizer’s fault for this hugely unexpected turn of events. I think it’s unfair for officials to ask the organizing committee to cancel the event due to ONE official death, at the expense of jeopardizing future tourism opportunities and 20,000 people’s expenses and time. What do you think? One sin, but everyone has to pay for it?
