Smukfest Copenhagen cancelled

Ticket sales were down 75 percent on last year

Skanderborg Festivalklub, the organiser of Smukfest Copenhagen, has announced that this year’s festival (the second time the company has ventured outside Jutland) is cancelled due to a lack of interest.

“We believe that the market is simply saturated for this precise constellation of artists and the type of festival we are offering,” stated Claus Visbye, the chairman of the Skanderborg Festivalklub and organiser of Smukfest Copenhagen.

“The fact is that we have only sold a quarter of the tickets we sold at the same time last year.”

Smukfest has been entertaining festival-goers in Skanderborg for 35 years now, and its plans this year (August 5-9) remain unchanged.

Tickets will be refunded
The Festivalklub estimates that the cancellation will cost between 4 and 6 million kroner.

Those who have purchased tickets will get a refund through Beeptify.

Smukfest Copenhagen was scheduled to take place from July 31 to August 1.

Among the musicians scheduled to perform were Lenny Kravitz, Martin Garrix, Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, The Only Two, Burhan G, Tove Strength and The Minds of the 99th.

Most of them are still due to play at Smukfest.
