Following heavy rain, the Festival had to be cancelled over the weekend because parts of the arena and campsite had flooded. Fans were hoping to see acts such as Deadmau5, Calvin Harris and Sub Focus, who were all due to appear on the Sunday night. [BBC]
In response to a number of enquiries we have received, firstly a refund announcement with full details of what people need to do will follow within the next 24 hours, however, in the meantime and to answer some of your questions here are the circumstances that led towards the cancellation of Sunday’s event, we hope that you can see that this decision required extensive assessment of the overall event site whilst at the same time implementing an evacuation plan. Once again the safety and welfare of all those on the campsites was paramount and we are sorry that it took some time before information was relased to those, but this was necessary so a controlled exit from the festival could be put in place. If these systems had not been implemented it was highly probable that a very large number of people would attempt to exit the site before a revised transport plan could be put in place.
