FIFA cancels OBZ Festival 2009..

(Ok,I may have spiced that headline up a bit). Its not really their fault directly ,but its still due to them so im going with it.

The annual OBZ festival has been cancelled this year because of a FIFA regulation stating that events or festivals that could compromise FIFA events must be cancelled or postponed.


Not happening

“Observatory businessmen have confirmed that because of the World Cup draw on December 4 there will be no Obz Fest this year, full-sized or scaled down.” [MORE at]

Come now Fifa…whats wrong with some extra festivals or events? The OBZ festival woulda only made things better i reckon.

“The annual OBZ festival is held in the Cape Town suburb of Observatory on the first weekend of December. Marking the beginning of the Cape Town summer, OBZ festival features live music, craft markets, children’s area and restaurants. Our objective is to position OBZ festival as the premier street festival in Cape Town thereby adding to the city’s rich cultural tourism industry.” [Facebook]
