Facebook page, "We’re very sad to say that we’ve decided 2015 was the last year for Future Music Festival. It’s been a difficult decision to make but in the end travelling the festival in its current form across Australia simply doesn’t make financial sense anymore. We want to thank you all for your support over the years – we’re grateful for all the unforgettable times we’ve shared together."
In a press release, Michael Gudinski (owner of event organizers Mushroom Group) stated, "Mushroom Group share the belief expressed by a number of promoters globally that the day of the large scale traveling festival in its current form is unfortunately numbered.” This comes in the same year that the large scale Stereosonic Festival returned to a one-day event.
That is why Future Music Festival is being cancelled to make way for a new concept festival. Stay tuned for more developments on the festival to replace Future Music Festival. In the mean time, enjoy the final aftermovie for Future Music Festival, recapping its 2015 circuit.
