Organizers tell Daily Hive that they’ve been unable to reach an agreement with the owners of the previous venue and despite efforts to locate a new space, they’ve been unable to find an equal or better location.
Electric Love Music Festival has been forced to postpone its annual summer event this year. Despite prolonged discussions with the providers of its previous venue, the parties involved have been unable to come to agreeable terms. Additional extensive searches for an alternative venue, in a location better than, or equal to the previous location, and that can accommodate the festivals rapid growth have also been unsuccessful.
A short list for potential venues in 2020 is already in the works and the festival team explains that they’ll be engaging with their audience to discuss their options within the coming months.
“We are disappointed to have to postpone to next year,” says Oliver Plé, Director of Operations. “But, we are fully committed to bringing back this truly magical weekend in its future forever home.”
The four-day festival typically ran in late July and included five themed stages, including a stunning beachfront.
Last year, more than 200 world-class DJs performed and the event boasted visual art installations, galleries, dancers, workshops, as well as food and merchandise vendors.
