The Visor Fest (Alicante, Spain) has published a statement on its Facebook profile announcing the cancellation of the second edition of the festival "due to weather conditions".

Next, the statement: “We are extremely saddened to announce today that Visor Festival 2019 is being cancelled. Following full consultation with all the relevant authorities including public bodies and external advisors, we are sorry to inform you that due to the impact that the extreme weather experienced in the area and the severe weather warnings, we are forced to cancel the Festival.
It is a very hard decision, but the best one taking into consideration all the circumstances. It is our belief that the safety and experience of our customers must always come first and as such we are unable to deliver the festival in these conditions Heavy rains make impossible to ensure the top quality standards Visor Festival always offer. Additionally, the red alert made by the local authorities makes us unable to keep the safety for all the bands, workers, fans and attenders what it is our absolute first priority for us.
Refund advise for festival tickets and food and beverage payment will be shaped as soon as possible.
We will keep working in order to bring all our fans this amazing music experience next year.
Thanks in advance for your understanding. Your support to our project means everything for us.
See you at VisorFest2020!”
