Renowned for being one of the most innovative and creative up and coming event organisations in the harder styles, Lose Your Mind built a solid reputation amongst the community. With their shining festival CRAFT being dubbed one of the summer highlights and their indoor concept De Tijdmachine also holding unprecedented status, from the outside things seemed to be going quite well for Amsterdam-based event organisers Lose Your Mind.
However, it appears as though things weren’t so rosy for the organisation, who, after rumours surfacing last night, have cancelled CRAFT Festival. After ticket sales for the festival ceased to appear online, the Hard Dance community became suspicious until head honcho Jeroen Sijtsma made an official announcement regarding the future of CRAFT Festival and Lose Your Mind.
From Facebook’s hasty translation, it became clear that the rumours were indeed true and that CRAFT Festival 2017 will not be held. Due to unforeseen circumstances that have occurred over the past few months, as well as the blow caused by the 2015 storm, things were not able to be kept afloat.
Despite the huge success of last year’s edition, with a heavy heart, Lose Your Mind had to announce this devastating news… It is indeed a heavy day for the Hard Dance community…
So you have something of mine to be good, or in other words: I owe you one.
