In a Statement released on Friday, the Tropical Fruits Committee announced the cancellation of the New Years “Wild Hearts” Festival for 2022.
“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of our flagship New Years “Wild Hearts” Festival for 2022.
Our management committee and key stakeholders have been working tirelessly all year to recover from the devastating floods in February and to put on a New Years event for our amazing, fruity community.
Unfortunately, lower than expected ticket sales, high production costs and critical safety concerns at the event site have meant that the event is not viable this year.
Please know that this decision has not been made lightly and our team has exhausted every option to make the event work.
We understand the impact that this decision will have on our community and we hope that you can accept our deepest apologies.
Ticket holders will be contacted again in the coming days regarding refunds or credits.
We would appreciate your patience and kindness during this time.”
