Garden Beats has announced the last-minute addition of one act to its roster for this year's festival: Running Touch
The newest addition will replace the slots originally reserved for Sabrina Claudio and BLOND:ISH, who both cancelled their respective Asia tours due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
Still set to perform are headliners FOALS and Gioli & Assia, while the rest of the line-up includes Viken Arman, The Illustrious Blacks, Crussen, Brendon P, Bongomann, DJ Aurora, James Selva, Justmack, KFC, Orio, and Toppings.
Given the recent artist changes and the COVID-19 situation, Garden Beats wants to empower the community to "make their own conscious decision on attending the festival" by providing options for ticket refunds or ticket transfers.
The refund and transfer mechanics are as follows:
Tickets are refundable – until Friday, 21st of February. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive refund instructions.
Tickets are transferable – until Friday, 28th of February. Festival-goers may transfer their tickets to someone else if they no longer wish to attend the festival. Pre-registration links will be sent one week before the festival to ticket-buyers via email, this allows for name changes and the transfer of information for tickets.
Tickets are now being priced at $148, instead of $168. Ticket holders who paid $168 will be refunded the $20.
Garden Beats has also attributed the decision of carrying on to the support of its festival-goers, artists, speakers, vendors, partners, and performers.
Tickets for the festival are still available:
Regular (until 27th February) – $148
Door (29th February) – $188 if tickets are available
VIP (until 27th February) – $208
Group of 5+ – $138 per pax
