This is the worst-case scenario for anybody who buys tickets to a destination festival. Two days before the festival not only cancels, but offers absolutely no refunds because it is going under. To many it will look like a smash and grab for the money they earned on some ticket sales, no matter how bleak the financial situation actually was.
In a statement, Groovefest apologized for the incident, explaining, "We have been unable to hit our ticket sales targets despite all our efforts." They offer phone numbers and contact details for those who made travel arrangements, though they advise everyone to not come to Punta Cana unless they can make arrangements beyond the festival.
"We will however in any event look to contact you all during the course of today / tomorrow or on Monday," the statement continues. That is not a job I would like to have.
