Sweden’s 40,000 capacity Love & Peace Festival has been cancelled after poor ticket sales. The annual end of June event, due to be headlined by Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, Queens of the Stone Age and Iggy Pop had sold just 9,000 tickets. It is understood the organising company is in administration.
The Isle of Man Festival – which would have featured Johnny Marr and Primal Scream – has also been cancelled, again because of poor ticket sales. The event was scheduled to take place on 6 July at Nobles Park and the line up also included Paloma Faith, Wretch 32 and Laura Mvula.
