The 2015 Future Music Festival Asia set to take place Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14 at the Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore has been cancelled as promoters weren't granted a public entertainment license.
FMFA 2015's first bump in the road was when news articles regarding last year's festival in Malaysia surfaced. Last year, there was one confirmed death due to a reported drug overdose. Headliners for this year's festival included Afrojack, Sander van Doorn, Avicii and Knife Party.
After the Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs denied their appeal, the festival started a #KeepFMFAAlive campaign on Twitter that got quite a lot of traction, but that wasn't enough and the festival had to be cancelled.
FMFA authorities put out several statements on Facebook updating the festival-goers on the situation. “We are working with the best international organisations in the world with a combined 50 years of experience working on similar events to ensure that this is the case,” one of them read.
The final announcement stated that organizers were “saddened” to announced the cancellation of the festival. As for refunds, “full ticket refunds will now be made to all FMFA ticket buyers,” the festival's Facebook post read.
