"We are disappointed to see ticket sales down on previous years, however we know we're in the middle of a very tough summer music festival season. It's now time to revamp the model for the future. We apologise to the artists who have made a commitment to Push Over and to the music fans who have purchased tickets. Refunds are available at the point of sale," said Wickens in the official statement released on Push Over 2014's Web site thepush.com.au.
