Earlier this month we asked the obvious question: What will happen to Pretty Lights’ Island of Light event? The event was set to take place in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, located right on the coast of the the island.
But as we all know, Hurricane Irma and Maria completely devastated the island of Puerto Rico. The organizers of the event put out a statement saying they were working hard to make Island Of Light a reality.
On September 25th the El Conquistador Resort, which is hotel affiliated with the event announced that they will not be accepting any new reservations, and today the news we all feared has come true. Island Of Light 2017 is officially cancelled. The Facebook page for the event made an official announcement today. You can see it below.
Refunds will be extended to all customers, and processed automatically. The festival organizers expressed their support for Puerto Rico, as it has become a tragic humanitarian crisis.
It’s been a tough week for music fans. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Puerto Rico. We hope Island Of Light can make a return in 2018.
