Press Release: Hmong Music Festival in Fresno, CA Postponed‏


Dear Hmong Music Festival Fans and Constituents,

Today, we are announcing that due to a complication with the United States immigration issue in Thailand, our Headliner, Laib Laus, will no longer be able to headline for the Hmong Music Festival (HMF) scheduled for May 24, 2014. We, like you, expect the greatest possible experience from the Hmong Music Festival for everyone. We have worked extremely hard to put together HMF for this year, but with the sudden change and without adequate time to get a headliner replacement there is a significant impact on the overall HMF experience. Our desires to provide the best possible experience and outcome for our fans, artists, and sponsors have led us to the decision to postpone HMF to May 23, 2015.

We sincerely apologize for the disappointment that this will bring to our community, constituents, our artists, and most importantly to our sponsors and our fans. The remaining scheduled artists and the Rising Star will be transferred to HMF 2015 along with the dance show, art exhibition, and the Revived fashion show. We will take this time to find a headliner replacement and restructure the event to further develop the quality and provide a more enhanced experience for each attendant at HMF.

Thank you so much to those of you who have already purchased tickets to HMF 2014. Your continued support at this level means the world to our efforts and continues to make us strive for the best without compromise.

If you have purchased your ticket online, you will be receiving an email from us with the option of trading your ticket for an HMF 2015 ticket, or receive a refund. If you purchased your tickets from your local Hmong stores, Hmong organizations, or from any of our HMF representatives, you may return your ticket back to the place or person you purchased it from, for a full refund.

Along with the support of our sponsors and several artists, we would like to thank you all for your wonderful and generous support of HMF for the past two years. We anticipate your support and look forward to celebrating Hmong music with everyone at HMF 2015. Any additional questions or concerns can be directed to our email at
