Fantastic Forgotten Fields festival cancelled after just one year

Forgotten Fields Festival cancelled after just one year

In shitty, horrendous news, the acclaimed Forgotten Fields festival has been cancelled after running for just one year. 

Despite a fantastic first year that featured the likes of Super Furry Animals and Basement Jaxx, the Tunbridge Wells event has been called off. 

This year Dizzee Rascal, Kelis, Maximo Park and Band of Skulls were among those confirmed. But they released the following statement on their website yesterday.

"Dear festival goers,

"We are hugely saddened to let you know that Forgotten Fields 2016 is no longer going ahead.

"It’s with heavy hearts that we let you know news of this cancellation and would like to thank you for your support of the event.

"Due to the rising costs of producing a quality event of this size, we are unable to produce a show that is of the standard both our team and customers would be proud of.

"After thorough consideration of the event and exhausting all options we have sadly reached this conclusion. It was an exceptionally difficult decision to make and hasn’t been taken lightly.

"We had a truly amazing time and weekend to remember in 2015, lifelong memories shared with lovely people in the fields, and we wish all the festival goers and team well for the coming festival season.

"Yours regretfully,

"The Forgotten Fields Team"  

If you had tickets to an event, you can either get a full refund or switch it for a ticket to Standon Calling 2016. Find information on refunds through their website.
