Mint Festival 2022 cancelled by organisers due to rising costs

Articles, News // Tue 28 Jun 2022 - 19:12pm

With a “heavy heart”, organisers have announced the postponement of this year’s Mint Festival until 2023.

They took to social media to break the news to current ticket holders and potential customers.

The independent festival has continued to operate over the years without corporate sponsorship, priding itself on an incredible experience without the eye-watering pricetag.

However, for a myriad of reasons “beyond [their] control”, the same value for money is now impossible.

They cited increasing costs as the main culprit for the postponement.

“Almost everything required to put on a festival has gone up in price, from fuel to production, staging, transport and crew to name a few.”

The self-reliant team also added they are not willing to “simply pass on costs to [their] customers”. Squeezing more money out of guests for tickets, drinks and food was “never an option”.

Mint thanked their customers for “being so loyal over the last few years”, adding that they “massively appreciate [the] support in these testing times”.

Their aim now is to ensure sustainability for years to come by building their own infrastructure.

The announcement concluded with clear options for current ticket holders.

“All 2022 tickets will automatically move over to Mint Festival 2023, so if you are happy to roll your tickets – you don’t need to do anything, full dates for which will be confirmed soon.”

“Refunds are also available in full, so for those wanting a refund of your ticket, please contact your ticketing provider.”

“PLEASE NOTE – This does not affect Newsam Park on July 9th – this will still go ahead as planned”.
