It’s a sad day for techno loving tourists, as it’s just been revealed that the highly anticipated Drumcode Festival, originally planned to be held in Malta next September, has been cancelled.

“We are heartbroken to give you the news that, due to an accumulation of unresolved problems with Pollen, the company responsible for providing venues, ticketing and accommodation for Drumcode Festival Malta, we no longer have confidence in their ability to deliver the rigorous high standards of safety and customer experience we demand of an event presented under our name”, the festival wrote on social media.

“In the best interests of everyone due to attend we have been left with no other responsible option but to cancel the event […] The first concern of those affected will rightly be for the refund of ticket and accommodation packages bought from Pollen. We have strongly advised them that all refunds must be made without delay,” it added.

“We have done everything in our power to bring you the event you expected and we share the anger, disappointment and frustration this outcome will cause to everyone who was due to join us in Malta next month.”

Drumcode Festival was set to host a multitude of international talent at a series of venues around the island.

Just today, Sky News reported that Pollen is, in fact ‘on brink of collapse’, just months after raising $150 million in funding.
