To all of our festival loving friends,

It’s with the greatest sadness we have to report that we will be taking a year off from our funky festival.

This is in no way an admission that we will never host another festival or music event again.

It’s just quite simply impossible to host our event this year due to various reasons that are out of our hands.

We fully plan to come back stronger supporting some great charities, local acts and local beers soon so watch this space.

Sorry to ruin your weekend,

Much love
