The Pyramid Rock Festival for 2013 will not go ahead.
Inversion Productions, who put on Pyramid have issued a statement saying “the Pyramid Rock Festival has regretfully advised they will not be proceeding with the event in 2013.
Pyramid was about to go into its second decade. “First held in 2004 the multi-day camping music festival has gained an excellent reputation providing top entertainment for young music fans in a safe environment,” the promoters added. “Over nine years of operation the annual New Year’s Eve festival has hosted national and international artists from across the globe at a coastal property on Phillip Island”.
While 2013 has been canned, Inversion will consider a revival of the event in 2014. “Due to tough economic conditions in recent years the Festival has become unviable for Inversion Productions and their only option is to cancel the event. Options will be explored for the festival to return on a permanent basis in 2014”.
