The Melbourne edition of The Sprung Festival has been cancelled.
A statement from promoter Clockwork Entertainment confirms that the Melbourne event has had to be cancelled after the loss of the venue in the City of Yarra.
“Despite agreements with the Yarra City Council and agreeing to all conditions on provisional liquor license, due to issues raised by the Divisional Planning Unit, North West Metropolitan Region, the Victorian Police have withdrawn their support for the event. This has left the Yarra City Council with little to no choice but to withdraw all support for the applications and therefore rescind the event permits,” the statement reads.
Clockwork Entertainment says that the time needed to find an alternate venue and secure the licenses needed for the event is not workable.
The Sprung Festival was to feature 360, Seth Sentry, Draft and Diafrix. It was to take place on October 19 in Melbourne. The event was on in Brisbane last weekend.
