Cancellation of the 2022 edition of FMLF
As you saw yesterday, we have been forced to give up hosting the FMLF this weekend. This announcement has disappointed many… starting with us.
Why such a decision so close to the festival date? Let’s be transparent, it’s for one reason and one reason only: the almost total absence of presales! Many festivals of this kind are in the same situation. Some have already announced the cancellation.
The program of the FMLF is good, the promotion was well done, the festival site is beautiful. But the current context is unfavourable to such an organisation, especially if it is new.
We had a choice between two possibilities. The first was to maintain the event on the planned date, for less than 300 people per day on a site capable of hosting several thousand. This is an absurd situation for the public, the organisers and disrespectful for the artists. Who wants this?
The second option is to postpone the festival. This is the option we have chosen, in consultation with the headliners.
You should know that today, as organisers, we are sad. We have put human, financial and emotional resources into this programme. We were looking forward to welcoming bands that we love and respect. Everything was ready for the festival: the site, the tents, the technical equipment, the teams…
Those who bought their tickets can now ask Ticketmaster for a refund if they don’t want to wait for the details of the rescheduling.
Thank you all for your understanding. And thank you for supporting the music, the events and the organisers.
