We just heard the Tattoo the Mind festival which would be held in Metz, France is cancelled. This is a short explanation from the organisation:
‘France’s TATTOO THE MIND #2 Festival Cancelled – Sep. 29, 2009
Tattoo The Mind #2 festival, which was scheduled to take place October 10-11, 2009 at Les Arènes in Metz, France, has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. According to festival organizer William Munerato from Prodige Music, only 360 one-day tickets and 210 two-day packages had been sold as of Monday, September 28 — far short of the 4,500 attendees needed in order for the festival to “break even.”
We feel sorry for the people who had a ticket already and were looking forward to this festival. I think that recession is the main problem, as the line up was quite good.Hope it will be held another date, in better times.
