An already under-pressure live events sector is grappling with the shift to the red light system – and organisers have already pulled the plug on festivals, NZ Herald reports. Organisers of the sold-out festival Splore announced the 2022 festival scheduled to go ahead at the end of February has been cancelled. Ticketholders will be contacted and given the option to claim a refund or to keep their ticket for the next Splore 24-26 February 2023.
