TomorrowWorld 2015 has been a hot topic in the news lately, and most of it hasn’t been positive. The festival, which was held in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia in September left many attendees stranded, some mugged, and extremely disappointed. Year-round residents also expressed their concerns of a negative impact the festival brought to their community after ticked-off or just plain wasted attendees smashed mailboxes, torn-down street signs, and a vandalized the city. But Chattahoochee Hills Mayor Tom Reed says that the festival WILL return again next year.
Mayor Tom Reed states that it’s not about what went wrong, it’s about how to fix it next year. The festival will not be banned, but next year the mayor hopes that festival will be a little kinder to its neighbors. The festival planners at SFX have released numerous apologies, and states that next year the logistical planning will have improved.
Posted on September 29, 2015 on the TomorrowWorld website, an apology states:
We understand and hear your frustrations and disappointments in the developments at TomorrowWorld over the last weekend. Our only goal was to create together with you the best weekend of the year, and we are heartbroken that we were not able to provide some of our precious fans with the full TomorrowWorld experience, which includes the complete journey to and from the festival.
The combination of your positive energy and our hard work did not shine through and we completely understand your dissatisfaction. TomorrowWorld was also let down by a number of external factors which did not allow us to provide you with the full experience you deserve. We realize we can’t turn back time and make it perfect, but for those who wish to, we are here to communicate directly and listen to all your personal stories, frustrations and questions.
You are the true People of Tomorrow and deserve all the respect in the world. As a part of this, the refund policy is active here:
