It is with a heavy heart that after 17 years of great memories and hard work, WEMF will officially be put back on hiatus from this point forward.
To say that the decision was difficult to make is an understatement. WEMF was the first multi-day outdoor EDM festival in Canada and it was the longest running event of its kind in North America. Many people poured their heart and soul into it for many years but unfortunately the economics no longer make sense and we have no choice but to focus our energy on other projects.
So now what you may ask?
Well, 2013 happens to be the Destiny 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY so we obviously need to throw a party! We are extremely happy to announce that we will be celebrating this milestone with our favourite DJ who in turn will be doing something very special for the important day. Of course, we are talking about The world's Number 1 Drum & Bass DJ, the one they call The Executioner… the one and only ANDY C! To ensure it is truly a special night, Andy will be performing a full 4 HOUR SET for the first time in North America for everyone on Saturday August 17 at the Kool Haus in Toronto. Beyond the special birthday celebration, Destiny and our friends at Embrace will continue to be the leaders of bass music in Canada for many years to come.
All tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase, including service charges. If you purchased through Ticketmaster, The Rogers Wireless Box Office (RWBO) or Wantickets.com, your credit card will be refunded automatically and likely already has. You should see the refund appear on your statements no later than this Monday April 22, 2013.
As a thank-you for your on-going support, we would like to offer anyone that purchased a ticket to WEMF both a discount to the Digital Dreams Music Festival on Canada Day Weekend and access to a limited 20 year anniversary party pre-sale. Both of these will require a unique PIN code and those that purchased online will receive their personal PIN via email very soon. Those with hard tickets will receive their PIN when they return their ticket to the point of purchase.
Thanks again for supporting us over the past 20 years. We hope to still see you on the dance floor this summer and beyond!
Destiny, Embrace & Electronic Nation
