Trinidad & Tobago’s Borders Festival Rescheduled
Just a little over a week ago, the much-anticipated inaugural Borders Festival in Trinidad and Tobago was cancelled, sending millions of would-be patrons into an uproar. For those patrons, however, there is some good news: the festival is reportedly back on, and has been rescheduled for a later date.
The following brief statement was issued via the event’s official Facebook page on Tuesday:
Hold on to your tickets, Borders is coming this summer. Borders Festival 2017 new dates released soon.
ALL tickets will be valid for new dates. ALL Bmobile complimentary tickets are valid for new dates.
Refunds available upon request at hotline: 784 3732.
The three-day music festival had been aimed at raising money for a national sports fund, and had been slated to be one of the most unique festivals held on the twin island, with a diverse performance lineup that included both local and international musical acts such as David Rudder and Bobby Valentino.
Just hours before the festival’s official kick-off, however, it was cancelled, with promoter Sheldon Monderoy citing “logistical issues which could not be overcome.”
No word has been given as to whether or not the rescheduled show will feature the same artist lineup.
