Eco-awareness festival halted by safety concerns - Times Online

The five-day festival was due to open on Wednesday but the organisers surrendered their licence yesterday after concerns, including issues involving road and fire safety, could not be resolved with police and the local council.
An inspector at Avon and Somerset Police refused to say what exactly their concerns were.
Avon and Somerset Police would only say: “It has been cancelled. The reasons are on our website.”

"Avon and Somerset Police worked with the event organisers as well as our multi agent partners, and subsequently went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure this event took place. However to due a number of issues including road and fire safety that could not be resolved the event organisers surrendered their licence."


The organisers will go bust and ticketholders and stallholders uncompensated, and that waffle is the only reason given. It's not the sort of festival that appeals to me, paying £125 to sit in the mud with eco beardies, but if that is what they want to do let them take a risk of a bong conflagration and a crash on the incoming ley lines.
