Spring Wave music festival cancelled
Due to the "worsening and persistent haze situation", the organiser of the music festival Spring Wave 2015 has cancelled the event that had been scheduled to take place on Oct 10 at Fort Canning Green. The health and safety of concertgoers, artists including rockers Luantan-Ascent, Wu Bai and Chang Chen-yue, partners and staff was of the "utmost priority", said the organiser Friendly Dog Entertainment. Those who have purchased tickets for Spring Wave 2015 can get in touch with ticketing agents such as Sistic for refunds. The organiser had tried to look for an alternative venue, but was unable to find a suitable indoor location.
