However, in November 2015 the festival was canceled because it had not registered enough ticket sales. The festival director Paxton Talbon said that despite the public support and strong promotional campaign, the ticket sales were nowhere near filling the 12,000 capacity of Vector Arena and after a hard consideration, it was concluded that the best way forward for all those involved was to cancel the event.

The cancellation came as a great shock to many people especially those who had purchased tickets, and many were not refunded because the organizers had so much debt.
