Yesterday, festival organisers had notified all punters of an alternate route to get to the festival as fires had threatened to cut off the main route to the festival. However, now the only alternate route has been compromised, leaving no possible routes available to the festival grounds. This news has left organisers no choice but to cancel the 3 day event, which included bands such as Foals, Bloc Party, Disclosure, Django Django, The Wombats + plenty more.
The fire, which caught ablaze Wednesday afternoon and reached emergency status overnight and into thursday morning, left organisers with no chance to relocate prior to gates opening.
Punters will receive a full refund on tickets with the promoters promising to release more information about the process on Wednesday, January 13.
