Raggamuffin music festival postponed

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 10/02/2017

The Raggamuffin music festival, which was be held in Auckland next Saturday, has been postponed until November, due to slow ticket sales.

Promoter Andrew McManus says slow ticket sales for the Festival and an extremely busy events market in Auckland have meant it is no longer viable to hold Raggamuffin X on February 18 at The Trusts Arena, Auckland.

"Ticket sales for the festival have slowed in recent weeks and appear to have been impacted by various factors including an announcement that train services will now not be available on the event date due to track work being done," he said.

Mr McManus said he had been in contact with the bands and artists booked to play and the headliners had given an assurance that they would be available to return in November.

Ticket purchasers can retain their tickets and await further information on a new date and venue. Refunds are available through point of purchase.
