2019 comeback edition of Doctor Music Festival cancelled
- Ticketholders will be fully refunded
- ACA’S (Catalan Agency d’Aigues) order to relocate the festival has prompted majority of fans to hand back their tickets
Barcelona, 12 June 2019. With deep regrets the promoters of Doctor Music Festival (DMF) have decided to cancel this year’s edition. After a 19-year hiatus, DMF’s comeback was due to take place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Montmeló from 12 to 14 July.
Festival founder Neo Sala explains the reasons behind this decision: “Cancelling the comeback edition of Doctor Music Festival is among the toughest decision of my promoter career. At the same time, it is inevitable. The recent relocation of the festival has not been well-received by the public. Since the ACA (Catalan Agency d’Aigues) surprisingly ordered us to move the DMF, we’ve seen a huge number of fans cancelling their tickets. While sales for our new location in Montmeló have risen in recent weeks, we ultimately won’t be able to offer the experience we were striving for.”
DMF will fully refund all tickets bought for the event. The refund procedure will start next Friday, June 21st and will be an automatic process for all those people who have purchased their tickets through doctormusicfestival.com, who will receive the refund of the total amount paid without having to process any application. For any questions about the return process, please write to email@example.com.
Neo Sala adds: “I’d like to thank everybody who, over the past three years, gave a helping hand in revitalizing one of Southern Europe’s most successful festival brands – artists, representatives, sponsors, partners, and, above all, the fans. A special thanks goes to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, who have done everything possible to adapt their spaces to a festival that had been originally designed to occupy a whole valley of the Pyrenees. Today, the Doctor Music Festival is canceled. But the spirit of the cow is still alive.”
