Cancelled Beachdown Festival 2009 Prompts Premature Comedown
Posted: 26th August 2009
It has just been announced by the organisers that the Beachdown Festival, due to take place this forthcoming August Bank Holiday, has been cancelled due to slower than anticipated ticket sales and a "lack of support from our bank". Ticket-holders have been advised to contact the agents from where their tickets were originally purchased for information.
The planned 4-day bash was due to take place at Devil's Dyke on the South Downs with Grace Jones, Super Furry Animals, The Fall and The Zutons as part of the fairly-decent line-up. But it appears that the recession, and lack of a plan B, have sadly caused the collapse of the event at the final hurdle.
The Directors of the Beachdown Festival advise the disappointed ticket-holders to be patient and to check the website, www.beachdownfestival.com for further announcements (as well as the ticket-agents of course)
