'It is with a heavy heart and a great deal of sadness that we have to deliver this message.
After a number of long conversations and having exhausted every other possibility we are having to make the difficult decision to cancel Wild Fields Festival 2024.
As you probably already know from the countless press stories and media articles, the current climate for the independent festival industry is pretty grim. Despite a considerable amount spent on marketing campaigns and a list of notable partners being brought on board to help spread the message, ticket sales have been exceptionally low and staff, production, talent and marketing costs have all skyrocketed.
As a team we’ve platformed some of the most exciting, progressive line-ups and sought to challenge convention, outdated attitudes and trends in the industry. Making these choices has never been easy but we’ve been tenacious and stuck to our values. Unfortunately, the industry and public response to these efforts and the myriad of additional costs means we are left without any other option.
We really appreciate you buying an advance ticket for the festival and giving us your support and love. You are a cherished part of our festival community and although we are having to let go of Wild Fields ‘24 we promise you we’ll be back with more exciting events and festivals soon.
We’ve made this difficult call as early as possible rather than taking a ‘wait and see’ approach, so new plans and arrangements can be made.
All ticket holders will receive a full refund to the payment method they used to purchase their passes. Please allow a maximum of 5 working days for refunds to be processed.
