Australia's new Festival X, from the reunited founders of retired juggernaut Stereosonic, has been canceled before its planned first edition.
Hardware and OneLove's slated new touring day event was supposed to hit Auckland and Brisbane on November 29 and 30, and Sydney and Melbourne on December 1 and 2.
"Due to unforeseen last-minute changes in artist availability, the partners involved in Festival X have agreed not to proceed with the 2018 event. We set out to deliver the very best experience and the compromises to the proposed line-up did not meet the vision that we have for Festival X. More news will follow on our future plans for Festival X - stay tuned to the website and Facebook page for more information."
There had been no line-up announcements since the festival was first announced a couple of months ago.
