Hi all,

We're sorry to be writing to you like this, but something has happened which we feel you have to know about urgently & hear from us first.

The Garden in Petrcane have just issued a statement, which you can read in full below. They are currently facing problems securing the operations license for the site in Petrcane, due to issues with neighbouring Hotel Pinija.

Negotiations are continuing and we all hope that Stop Making Sense will take place as usual in Petrcane in 2012.

We are working closely with The Garden team and all the other promoters using the festival site and are flying over tomorrow for further discussions. We all hope that 2012 will be the same magical experience in Petrcane as usual. Please bear with us over the next week as we try to resolve these issues. We will be in Croatia until the weekend & of course we know how frustrating this is for you, so we ask you kindly to bear with us until Monday 28th November when we will be in a better position to tell you exactly what is happening. Please feel free to drop us an e mail us on & we will get back to you as soon as possible.

We thank you for your kind understanding & patience during the tricky next few days, but we remain hopeful of a happy ending.

Chris & Alex

The Garden Statement :

"After 6 great years in Petrcane, we have unexpectedly come up against problems with Hotel Pinija, whose permission we need to secure our annual operating license for the festivals. Negotiations with the hotel are still ongoing & we truly hope we can solve all issues with them. Over the past few days we have been looking at numerous stunning locations local to Zadar/Split and have earmarked a few that fit the Garden bill, should a move be necessary.
If we do find we have to move to a new location what will certainly never change is the ethos of our Garden, the week long program, the beauty of the coastline, the sunshine & good times, and of course most importantly - the people.

Please bear with us until next week when the picture will be a lot clearer and we will issue a further statement and if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us at Garden HQ. or call us on 0038523364320.
(9am - 3pm UK time)

Big Love & see you in the sunshine.
The Garden Family xxx"
