We reported on Friday about the bumpy start for Rave Family Block Fest, the dance music festival being held within the game Minecraft.
People who’d paid for tickets to attend were finding it difficult to access the event, and when they did get in, they realised that the music itself had to be streamed separately from MixCloud. Later that day, the event’s organisers decided to postpone it for a second time, to sort out the problems.
“It’s not fair to anyone involved to deliver a subpar experience and knowing what we’ve actually built versus what we were able to deliver is heartbreaking. People who attended paid for an experience that they deserve,” said the announcement.
“We have decided to postpone the event, while still leaving our festival and camping open for the people who have been enjoying them for the last few days.”
Fans will be able to request a refund.
