Bedfordshire’s Fort Fest has been cancelled due to low ticket sales, the festival, due to be held at the start of August, was about to celebrate it’s second year running. With a mixture of sounds plus small and more well known bands being part of the experience, it’s a real shame this has been the outcome.
“We are deeply saddened that we have had to cancel Fort Fest. After a very promising start last year, ticket sales have been extremely disappointing and there was no prospect of us being able to deliver the festival that we had planned or that everyone involved deserves. We would like to apologise to everyone who has bought tickets and to the bands and traders that supported Fort Fest. Full refunds will, of course, be forthcoming this week.” – Jon Hewitt, on behalf of The Fort Records
