Figures show that wet weather shut down 57 festivals in one summer

Following the torrential downpour at Download Festival, figures have shown that the wet summer of 2012 forced some 57 festivals to shut down.

Yes, torrential rain can really ruin a festival, from wet sleeping bags to mud baths to literal cancellations according to a report from Parcel Hero. In that year the weather caused 57 festivals to go out of business, because they were unable to cope with the cost of addressing flooding or dealing with weather-related cancellations.

So a whopping 5.9% of festivals that were due to take place that year went out of business because of the weather. Then those who brave severe weather conditions sell significantly fewer tickets on the day.
