The Hosts for the iHeartMusic festival in Australia announced last Thursday that the festival had been canceled, which is a shame for all the Smilers out there because Miley was meant to be a headlining performance in the festival.
The iHeartMusic festival was due to kick off in Sydney at Allphones Arena on the 18th of October with a seating capacity of more than 20,00 people, the IHeartRadio tickets only went on sales a week before the news of cancellation, and of course all fans are entitled to a full refund.
The organizers of the event, iHeatRadio and promoters Dainty Group commented on the unfortunate news by stating “Our objective for this first iHeartRadio Australia Music Festival was to create the very best experience possible for music lovers, and when this wasn’t possible, the difficult but the necessary decision was made to cancel.”
Then continued to elaborate on reasoning for cancelling the event by saying “This is as a consequence of the unavailability of another headline act, who was due to be announced this week.”
But to add a positive note to this whole situation, a spokesperson of iheartRadio mentioned holding an iHeartRadio festival in Australia is not ruled out altogether, and the event would be revisited at a later stage.
