Bad news for everyone planning to hit Fort Fest!
It is with great regret that the organisers of Fort Fest have had to cancel the 2017 event.
Despite the strong line up featuring Pulled Apart By Horses, Rolo Tomassi, Toploader, Fort Hope, Normandie and many more, the three-day festival as Scald End Farm in Bedfordshire will not be taking place on 4-6 August due to low ticket sales.
Jon Hewitt said on behalf of organisers The Fort Records:
“We are deeply saddened that we have had to cancel Fort Fest. After a very promising start last year, ticket sales have been extremely disappointing and there was no prospect of us being able to deliver the festival that we had planned or that everyone involved deserves. We would like to apologise to everyone who has bought tickets and to the bands and traders that supported Fort Fest. Full refunds will, of course, be forthcoming this week.”
All ticket holders will be refunded with the next seven days.
