RELISH will not be performing at this years Java Jazz festival. Issues around contracts and health and safety could not be resolved and the band literally bent over backward to try and get out to their long time fans in Indonesia but the organisers were requiring compromises that were beyond reasonable. Our agent has worked diligently on this for months only to be disappointed at the very last minute.
To add insult to injury said organisers in conjunction with the Airline sponsors have confirmed safe arrival of Relish in Indonesia this morning which is misrepresenting the truth to say the least. Relish's main concerns right now are that their trusted fans have bought tickets to see them and are still being led to believe that not only are the band still playing but that they are even in the country. This is completely unacceptable and extremely disappointing to the band and soon will be to fans of the band that have bought tickets in good faith.
"We look forward forward to performing in Indonesia as soon as possible to make up for this disappointment and pass on our very best wishes to the beautiful people in this beautiful country".
On behalf of Relish.
