Two more UK festivals cancel

Following an admission from Vince Power’s Music Festivals plc that ticket sales in the UK festivals sector this year were “currently slower than last year”, as was Bencassim in Spain, two more music events have pulled the plug this week, the Cheshire-based Cloud 9 and Golden Down in Winchester, joining the already cancelled Sonisphere, Rough Beats and The Big Chill:  Cloud 9 ticket holders will all get refunds, while those with tickets for Golden Down can opt to take a refund or swap their ticket for access to this year’s Glade Festival.

There is a very good article in the Observer newspaper on May 27th -“Beat surrender: why the heart of British rock music is under threat” looking at small venue closures – its all here at: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2012/may/26/rock-music-venues-bust-britain
