The organisers of Future Music Festival Asia brings a message to all FMFA fans out there! Lets #KeepFMFAAlive
“I’m sure you would have heard about the Permit issue by now, however, fear not! The news that broke was not entirely accurate and no final decision has been made yet by the authorities. Livescape is working relentlessly around the clock to ensure that the show happens! Livescape just asks members of the public to give them 48 hours to work on the issue at hand and an update will be provided by Friday/Saturday.
At the moment Livescape has gone up to the highest level to appeal for the festival to proceed. The Singapore Police Force’s concerns are with regards to the isolated drug related incidents that happened in Malaysia last year. Isolated incidents which happened outside of Singapore cannot and do not carry any implication that FMFA is in any way linked to drug use nor is it any indication that there will be drug abuse at the event. FMFA firmly stands behind their goal of creating a drug-free event for festival goers to enjoy and are working with the best international organisations in the world with a combined 50 years of experience working on similar events to ensure that this is the case.
Contingency plans are in place and on standby if (God Forbid) the appeal does not go through. The backup plan is to activate FMFA within various venues in Singapore (i.e: clubs, indoor arenas).
Please, join us in making our voices heard. Music unites, and FMFA believes that together we can make a stand for our right to #KeepFMFAAlive and #Drugfree. We would be ever so grateful if you could share this message with your fans, friends and family.”
