UPDATE: Electric Adventure's organizers have contacted Magnetic Magazine to inform us that ticket refunds are available at point of purchase.
East Coast electronic music fans have one less massive to look forward to as festival season draws to a close. Atlantic City, New Jersey event Electric Adventure has cancelled its 2016 edition.
This year's installment of Electric Adventure was slated for September 24th-25th on a beachfront venue at Albany Avenue in Atlantic City. However, the festival's organizers, John Dimatteo and Lee Helman, attempted to switch locations to Arkansas Avenue and received a letter from Atlantic City Mayor Donald A. Guardian:
"With the event scheduled for a mere two weekends from now, we were forced to make a decision that we felt would be in the best interest for you - our loyal fanbase, the artists involved, and for our brand," reads a statement posted to the Electric Adventure Facebook page. "We wanted to make our fifth year anniversary one to remember and ultimately realized that due to ongoing developments, this event wasn’t on par with your expectations and our aspirations."
The statement did not provide any information regarding ticket refunds, assuring instead that Electric Adventure's 2016 edition will take place at a later date. The festival's organizers will likely reveal more information in the days to follow.
