Last week it was revealed that the inaugural Gold Coast festival Sandtunes was cancelled on account of poor tickets sales.

“We tried our best to make Metricon work for SandTunes,” a spokesperson for the event shared.

“But the reality is that without sand between our punters’ toes, the very notion of the beachside festival in a stadium meant low sales and we had to make the hard decision to cancel this major Gold Coast event.”

As a consolation prize to punters missing out on relishing in the magic of ‘Sicko Mode’, Festival X is offering a $20 discount on tickets to their festival.

“Dear Festival X Friends and Family,

We heard the news that SandTunes on the Gold Coast has been cancelled.  We are setting up a code with Ticketmaster for our Brisbane show, offering a discount of $20 for those affected by this show cancellation,” the festival shared in a Facebook post.
