The full statement from Y Not? is below


Unfortunately we’ve had to take the difficult decision to cancel Sunday due to the adverse weather conditions across the weekend, after consulting all the relevant authorities. The safety of our guests, performers and crew is our primary concern and the potential risk was too severe for Sunday to go ahead. We are very sorry for the disappointment and disruption caused to everyone who was looking forward to the final day of the festival. We understand that people will have questions about refunds. We will be giving all our guests further information about this over the coming days.

We advise people to pack their tents and belongings and leave the site calmly over the course of the day. The event team, security, and stewards are here to help and assist.

Car Parks
The car parks have also been affected by the rain and we have put in place additional measures to support the safe departure of all guests. Please bear with us at this time, as it may take longer than expected to exit.

The pick-up and drop off area for cars is operating as usual, please follow the signs. If you are picking someone up please use the designated area and do not stop on the main road.
