KRANK’D UP Announces Animals As Leaders [Update]

Krank'd Up



Dear Krank’d Up fans, It’s with much regret that we bring you this update. This is a first in the Krank’d Up camp for sure, but the reality is that these things do happen. Unfortunately Animals As Leaders will no longer be performing at this year’s Krank’d Up festival. We received the bad news from their representatives who confirmed that they have a scheduling conflict which they simply cannot resolve. The silver lining here is that we’re busy negotiating with Animals As Leaders to bring them to South Africa sometime in 2018. More news on this soon. Our team has been working tirelessly in finding a suitable replacement and we’re excited to tell you that this announcement will take place TOMORROW.

So keep an eye on our page for this news. Hint: Fans of Animals As Leaders, Protest The Hero, Periphery and TesseracT, here’s looking at you!

We’ve been in contact with Computicket about this cancellation and Animals As Leaders fans who feel they’d like a refund can do so by contacting the Computicket Call Centre on 0861 915 8000 (calls to 0861 numbers are charged at a flat rate of 65c per minute) or 011 340 8000 (standard landline rates apply), Monday to Saturday, between 08h00 and 20h00. The Call Centre is closed on Sundays and some public holidays. Alternately you can email HOWEVER, we really think it best you see who we will be announcing tomorrow first before deciding to go the ticket refund route.

Yours in great music, The Krank’d Up Festival Team.
