The MTK: Music To Know Festival, which was scheduled to take place in East Hampton, NY this upcoming weekend, has been cancelled. A statement on the MTK website cited low ticket sales as the basis for cancellation.
“Despite our unique vision and arranging a world-class lineup, ticket sales were not adequate to allow the event to continue…. We too are filled with deep disappointment. We pledge to endure during this difficult time with the same integrity and professionalism displayed throughout the creation of this event.” Ticket holders have been directed to check the festival’s website in the coming week for refund information.
Additionally, M. Ward, who was scheduled to perform at the festival on Saturday, has had to cancel two of his east coast tour dates as a result of MTK’s cancellation. In a press release, M. Ward sincerely apologized to fans, stating that without the funding from MTK, he would not be able to make the trip to the east coast.
M. Ward Cancelled Tour Dates:
8/11/2011 – Montclair, NJ – Wellmont Theatre
8/12/2011 – North Adams, MA – MASS MoCa
