The organisers of the Summerfest Doncaster in Sandall Park planned for Saturday August 6th 2016 have made the following announcement:
“It is with great regret the organisers announce cancellation of this event and wish to thank bands, audience, suppliers and other patrons for their efforts and support. The decision has been made purely on commercial grounds as a live event of this nature is a significant commitment.
The organisers also note their disappointment to see the announcement of two other festivals in the Doncaster area on the same day despite Summerfest being announced in October 2015. Doncaster has a vibrant music scene but can ill afford that pressure on audiences. The loss to the market unfortunately is to be able to present multi album selling artists.
With respect to refunds tickets purchased direct from the organisers will automatically be recredited within 14 working days and all queries may be directed to Luke Stevens on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We wish the live original music and the great people of Doncaster well and apologise again for any disappointment and the loss to the 3 charities the event was intent on supporting.”
This is a huge disappointment for the Friends of Sandall Park as we are continually trying to attract new entertainment to the park.
