MEDIA RELEASE: 24 DEC 07
It has been a trying two weeks for the organisers of Mercury Rising 07. The prevailing easterly conditions over the Coromandel have bought higher than average rainfall to the region. More rain is predicted over the coming week. The impact of this weather has meant all work scheduled to apply site infrastructure since last Tuesday December 18 has not been completed.

A decision was made after a site inspection this afternoon to cancel the New Years event for 2007. The chance of essential works not being completed before access is required is greater than the chance of the necessary access being completed in time for the event.

Ticket refunds will be available from point of purchase. If the point of purchase is closed over the next few days the refunds will be available immediately upon reopening after the break.

Promoter Manolo Echave has stated “We know this will be a great disappointment to all those who chose to spend their New Years with the great lineup of NZ talent that was scheduled for MR07. It is a far greater disappointment for us to not be able to get the fans and the bands together. Unusual weather conditions have in this instance put an insurmountable barrier before us.”

For further information there will be email contact at nye07@hotmail.com from Dec 28 or there will be an info hotline attended from Jan 4 at (07) 867 1415.
