We loved the last edition as much as we loved all the 7th years and we are deeply grateful we got to share this experiences with all of you!
As we previously stated we feel we have archived what wanted with this project and we decided the peak moment of the festival concept development is the best one to stop.
Every event series has a peak moment where the cultural and artistic content reaches the threshold of what the concept allows and even through it might be possible to continue an event commercially successful from that point the core creative heart will go down.
There has been two likely ways for the festival to develop too, one was it would have went commercially orientated and the other was we would have had a decreasing extent of content and evolution wich for us both has never really been an option.
Besides the artistic integrity reasons there are many personal as well. We, the 7 main organizers, invested most of our time into the festival for 8 contentious years and now there are other things we want to dedicate our lives to, might it be family, art, health, other businesses or events.
So once again we want to thank everybody from the bottom of our hearts, our amazing crew who put all their creative and physical best into the festival and our dear guests who in the end, by participating, made the festival to what it was.
With love, your F.O.N crew
