After three years in Malaysia and one planned Singapore gig that never came to be, Future Music Festival Asia has come to an end. Its Australian counterpart has also announced that it is shutting down for good.

The Asian leg of the music festival has been plagued by issues over the past couple of years. Tragically, on the second day of FMFA 2014, six people died from drug overdoses – one on festival grounds, the others either on the way to the hospital or at the hospital – leading to the cancellation of the third and final day of the festival. Pharrell Williams and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had been scheduled to perform on that day.

This year's festival was to make its debut in Singapore, but was cancelled at the last minute after its Public Entertainment License was rejected three times by Singapore's Ministry of Home Affairs.
