"We have an important announcement regarding the live performance on July 5th and 6th at Anime Midwest - we had been processing for a long-term visa for LuLa, but as we have not yet received the approval from the US government, we would like to cancel the live performance for FEMM at this time.
Anime Midwest has been truly cooperative with the FEMM's Agency Syndicate staff to smoothly process the visa, but due to the delay in the visa processing with our US agent, we'd like to deeply and sincerely apologize for this consequence especially to every fan who had been long waiting for FEMM's live performance at Anime Midwest.
After a thorough discussion with the Anime Midwest event organizer, we would like to challenge for revenge at the Con+Alt+Delete scheduled for December 2019 - we are currently under further discussion. Updates will be announced shortly.
Meanwhile, RiRi will participate in Meet & Greet and Q&A at July 5th(Fri) & 6th(Sat) during Anime Midwest, so hope you will take this opportunity to come and personally meet RiRi.
Many thanks in advance for your kind attention.
-- FEMM's Agency Syndicate"
"We're sorry to have to bring you disappointing news again. Unfortunately we had additional visa difficulties with our acts Zwei, Fuki, and DLL. They also were not able to get the appropriate visas in time. This is disappointing and sad news, and we just were able to confirm their inability come today. We've never had this problem before, but it seems like visa processing has been taking longer and longer. In fact, we received notice of approval for one of our acts's visas just yesterday - however, due to the 4th of July holiday, the actual visa would not be ready to pick up until Monday. Last year our event was a few days after the 4th of July, and so we did not run into this issue.
We, and the acts, are both terribly sorry to disappoint fans and if you would like to reach out to us about this please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you. We're updating our online schedule with up to date events and scheduling, and moving some fantastic acts to our larger Grand Stage!"
Pretty much all their big acts are no longer going to perform. I want a refund!
Voltaire is out too. I at least want my Platinum ticket refunded to a normal one...
Voltaire was a massive factor of why I came here. Can't forget that V for villians also couldn't make it.
Honestly not happy to have 6 concerts cancelled last minute and not tell anyone. I got to see Linkara, so I can at least say I got to see one thing on my list. (Dealers and artists are awesome, but staff had nothing to do with that)
Really feeling like I booked a hotel and a three-day pass for not much. I'm hoping steam powered giraffe will still preform, but right now it feels slim.
