Soulfest Featuring Lauryn Hill And Mary J Blige Cancelled

Australia’s Soulfest has been cancelled two weeks out from its proposed kick off date.

Soulfest boasted an ‘A’ list line-up with Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill and Mos Def headlining the festival but the fans just weren’t interested.

In a statement Soulfest organisers said, “It is with a heavy heart and great regret that Soulfest International advises that it has become necessary to cancel Soulfest and the subsequent sideshows, due to poor ticket sales. Soulfest was scheduled to take place in Auckland, Melbourne and Sydney, with sideshows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, and was due to commence on October 20th”

This was the second year of Soulfest but even the first event struggled in 2014. “Despite a stellar line-up of artists and the best promotional endeavours on Soulfest’s behalf, the event has simply not received the support via ticket sales, and the financial loss that would be incurred by the event if it were to go ahead as planned would be devastating,” organisers said.
