The organizers of the World Jam Music Festival, in consultation with the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs have taken a responsible decision, after total evaluation, to postpone the event until a suitable date in 2015.

Whilst the entire event is planned, approved and ready to go, the event organizers and province understand that a tough economic year and sudden, massive event congestion, has placed severe burden on the ticket buying public, who have not been able to give the support required through ticket sales.

Out of consideration and respect for the performance and attendance requirements of the artists and suppliers’ commitments, it was decided it would be in the best interest of all involved to reschedule the festival. In this way Durban and the people of KwaZulu-Natal will have more of a chance to embrace and take ownership of their own product.

To date, a comprehensive communication campaign has ensured media advertising, positive publicity, support, and belief in the event from the media. Many of the local and international artists have shown their support through media interviews and excitement on their part. Those who are available for the new dates will continue with the festival.

The event organizers, Province and valued suppliers all remain supportive of the decision and committed to the event, and will work together towards the new date. Ticket holders may claim a refund from Computicket, until the next date is published.
