Jason Felts, chief brand and marketing officer for KAABOO, announced “After careful deliberation, the partners behind KAABOO Cayman regret to announce that the event will not be returning to the Cayman Islands in 2020,”
Those holding passes will have their money refunded. Emails were sent out to purchasers Sunday evening, confirming cancellation of the event and providing details of the refund process.
KAABOO and Dart were the two major partners in the event. In a statement, Dart officials said, “Not proceeding with a 2020 Cayman event was a business decision. We wish KAABOO the best on its US events.”
“The success of KAABOO Cayman in 2019 as a multi-day, premium music, art and comedy festival has established Cayman’s ability to deliver large-scale events at international standards,” Felts said in his statement. “KAABOO will be returning its focus to its current and future planned US-based events.”
“KAABOO Cayman would like to sincerely thank all those who attended, supported and participated in the 2019 event, and hopes a precedent has been set for future festivals in the Cayman Islands.”
