Good Vibes Festival 2024 cancelled to respect coronation

The Good Vibes Festival (GVF) 2024 has been cancelled out of respect for His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, the 17th King of Malaysia, and his coronation ceremony.

Future Sound Asia, the festival's organizer, announced the cancellation on social media, emphasizing that it will not be rescheduled for this year.

This marks the second consecutive year that the festival has been cancelled, citing logistical challenges with its multi-day, multi-act format.

All ticket holders will receive full refunds automatically through their original payment methods, according to a statement on GVF's Instagram page.

Originally scheduled for July 20-21 at Resorts World Awana in Genting Highlands, the festival promised performances by renowned international artists.

In 2023, the festival was similarly cancelled following controversy involving The 1975's frontman, which led to widespread public and governmental backlash.

The abrupt cancellation and subsequent banning of The 1975 from Malaysia underscored the festival's volatile history.

Future updates regarding GVF and potential future events will be communicated through official channels, as fans await the next opportunity to celebrate music and culture in Malaysia.
