En las últimas semanas el joven artista sueco Avicii ha cancelado varias de sus actuaciones y los promotores de un festival holandés que iba a estar dedicada a los artistas suecos han dudado de la presencia del artista en sus compromisos con ellos.
Según una nota de prensa publicada por la promotora de The Flying Dutch, explica que han pedido garantías a la agencia de Avicii y ante el escaso compromiso de esta han decidido cancelar el evento, en realidad era triple ya que se iba a celebrar el 30 de julio en tres ciudades holandesas a la vez: La Haya, Nijmegen y Den Bosch. Además de Avicii también estaban confirmados otros djs como Dada Life, Alesso o Steve Angello.
El festival ha anunciado que devolverá el dinero la entrada lo antes posible a todos los que la han comprado.

"Following the last and very successful The Flying Dutch edition of this past weekend, in three Dutch cities, the organisers now regretfully announce the cancellation of the Swedish edition. This Swedish version of The Flying Dutch was to take place on Saturday 30 July in The Hague, Nijmegen and Den Bosch. Several Swedish top DJs/producers, including the world famous Avicii, would perform there. The dance event is now cancelled because Avicii's management can't vouch for the presence of the superstar. The visitors who had already bought tickets for the shows will of course receive a refund.
These past weeks we experienced uncertainty because Avicii was cancelling a lot of shows all over the world,' says organiser John Ewbank. ‘Our request to Avicii and his management to provide a guarantee of his attendance at our event went to no avail. They can't vouch for his presence. This uncertainty is unacceptable. We can't do that to our audience.' Allan Hardenberg of Alda adds: ‘We regret this very much, also because these would be his final shows in our country. We understand that the fans will be disappointed, especially because everyone realises how unique this event would have been. Everyone who had already bought a ticket will of course receive a refund. They will be informed by us personally and our website will also contain information about how to get your money back."
