BAYSIDE ROCKS FESTIVAL ON SATURDAY NOVEMBER 19TH, 2011 HAS BEEN POSTPONED.

MIAMI, FL (November 18, 2011) - The 2nd Annual Bayside Rocks Festival has been official POSTPONED until further notice. Every effort is being made to secure a make up date.

Due to unforeseen complications with the festival’s headliners Bunny Wailer & Luciano, producers of festival felt they had no other choice but to postpone the event. Bunny Wailer has cancelled all of his upcoming international show dates due to an undisclosed medical condition. Additionally it was just discovered that the second headliner, Luciano, is unable to travel to the United States due to a serious legal issue.

All ticket holders will receive a full refund from the original point of purchase.

Bayside Rocks Festival Producer Alfonso D’Niscio Brooks has issued the following statement:

“It is with deep regret that I tell you all of my disappointment in having to postpone Bayside Rocks on Saturday. I feel defeated and know I have failed you all. I humbly ask that you accept my apologies and your understanding as I journey thru this trying moment. Everything happens for a reason I am often told. In watching the things that have transpired I will only accept that the Most High has a different plan. I accept that my life is in Divine Order thus today I was only granted the best possible result that could have happened for my life. In moving forward please note that we will be in touch with everyone to handle any concerns or issues that need to be addressed. I thank you for supporting us in all the ways you did. We will find another way to feed the hungry for Thanksgiving as we reschedule the event. Please everyone that bought an advance ticket you must return to your point of purchase for a complete refund. Thank you for taking the time to read this humble note. One Love. “

We ask that all vendors, sponsors and participants with vested interests in the festival to be patient and know all issues will be handled individually by Friday November 25th, 2011
