UPDATE: Oct. 14, 9:03 p.m.:
Monster Massive finally released its official cancellation announcement on Facebook and on its website:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, and with great disappointment, Go Ventures announces that this year's Monster Massive scheduled for October 29, 2011 has been cancelled.

We would like to thank all of our loyal supporters, affiliates and staff for their hard work, commitment and efforts in support of this much loved event. Go Ventures upholds the belief of Quality Music, Stellar Production and Lifetime Memories. Go Ventures would not put on an event that did not meet these high standards.

We want to assure our fans that Monster Massive will return in 2012 better than ever, with a First Class Line-up and State of the Art Production, consistent with what our fans expect from Go Ventures.


UPDATE: Oct. 14, 11:33 a.m.: Monster Massive 2011 is officially canceled. Flav.or.us, the official ticketing site of the event, has stopped selling tickets and posted the news "canceled" on their website. CLICK HERE TO LEARN HOW TO GET YOUR REFUND.
 

Original post, Oct. 14, 7:58 p.m.: Here's the final nail in the Monster Massive coffin: Armin Van Buuren finally posted on his site and on the Armin Only site that the Armin Only Mirage show isn't happening, saying, "The show has been canceled due to circumstances beyond our control."

The DJ says, "I am completely devastated by this cancellation. I've never cancelled an Armin Only show before, so I'm very upset to have to now." (Read the whole announcement after the jump.)

Even after the not-entirely unexpected announcement, there's still no official word from Monster Massive's organizers, Go Ventures, other than the two-day-old status update on its Facebook page claiming the 14-year-old event "will be at Oak Canyon Park, and we will release more information shortly."  Calls made to Go Ventures' president and CEO, Reza Gerami, were not answered.

It's possible that only Armin Van Buuren is off the lineup; after all, last night, after a show in Hollywood, we saw a street teamer handing out fliers for Monster Massive 2011.

But without the "No. 1 DJ in the world," Monster Massive's Facebook site is blowing up with comments from angry ticketholders. Ella Fitz-j says, "With Armin Only canceled, I want my money back. You guys are ridiculous."

Erick Morillo also announced the cancellation on his site. Read his statement after the jump as well.

Read about all the drama from the beginning here--from the Facebook announcement wars with Oak Canyon Ranch's management to a tell-all exposé by a former employee.

"There has been a misunderstanding between the staff at James Events and Go Ventures. Their office was inundated with calls yesterday and staff there were not equipped to handle the calls or provide correct information to concerned callers. Their website will be updated within 48 hours. We are not cancelled or moving. We apologize for the rumors and confusion online."

http://support.flavorus.com/cu..."Unfortunately, we have a no refund policy. If the tickets are will call, the party picking up the order will need to have the credit card used to purchase the tickets. If they cannot bring the credit card, you may give them a photocopy of the card and your ID."

I honestly doubt the ticket buys will get a refund. The event is still happening so you cant get a refund on something that happened. Only way to get a refund is if it is cancelled and according to the site its happening! http://fla.vor.us/1102327-Mons... they still have tickets selling and look at the artists...NO ARMIN! it is still happening guys, just without armin! no refunds!

Fucking Monter Massive being sketchy! So they reel people in like cattle with "armin only" just so they sell a lot of tickets and then cancel last minute haha...I bet they are still gonna have Monster Massive and keep all of the ticket money because if they still have the event they wouldnt have to refund you your money and they wouldnt have to pay armin the $250,000 they were gonna have to pay him to play his 8 hour set! or they might just cancel and refund all the money? doubt it...time will tell...but as of now only the artists have calcelled. monster massive aka goventures has not posted anything officially cancelling monster massive on their facebook or website...also i read that someone called the venue and the venue told them it was still scheduled to happen, just without armin and erick morillo...if u check the flavorus n grooetickets they are still selling tickets and armin/erick morillo are off the artist lineup on the ticket sites...SO IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS STILL HAPPENING, JUST WITHOUT ARMIN...IF IT DOES HAPPEN YOU CANT GET A REFUND AT ALL..GOODLUCK...REMEMBER!!!! LINEUP IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE!

Anyone that bought a ticket already should contact an attorney.  Mine got me a choice of a refund or free VIP tickets for 2012 EDC when Insomniac didn't provide the VIP ammenities they promised at this years EDC.   http://thompsonadvocacy.com/  Jason Ryan Thompson- 1800 491 7097

Does that mean that you get the same VIP non-amenities as last year?

I couldn't care less what they say or don't say, as I never bought a damn ticket. I just find it hilarious to call people idiots when you can't even spell. And english isn't even my 1st language, so who is the idiot now ?

I know I have read this...It is still puzzling why Goventures has yet to announce any of this under their name...I still think that you wont get refunds and if you do only some people will...not every single dollar will be refunded...I never had to buy a ticket though, so it isnt a worry of mine. In insomniac we trust.

Wow, I'm not sure about go ventures cuz there shady as hell. But try just sending an email first. I sent insomniac a pretty reasonable and respectful email because I didn't think my 2011 EDC VIP tix were as advertised either and they hooked it up and were more than cool. But if they don't then F them have an attorney call haha

I sent Insomniac a very respectful email because of VIP issues at EDC 2011 as well and they replied, were very respectful, and more than made up for it. I highly doubt you will get the same treatment from shady as eff GoVentures. Insomniac all the way! I should have known GoVentures booking ARMIN was TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.
