Unfortunately EssexFest, due to go ahead this weekend 19/20 July, has been cancelled.
We have been told very little so far, and in fact artists weren't informed at all until after the cancellation had been announced via twitter, which is a little disappointing.
As we understand it though, the licence has been withdrawn due to concerns over noise pollution.
It's a real shame that the show has been cancelled, and we will try to accommodate best we can. It just goes to show that, as with all major events, the last say must come from the authorities - and if they deem a show unacceptable, unsafe or otherwise unsuitable, then we have to respect their decision.
Because of all this, we won't be performing at all this weekend. Our next slot will be OsFest on Saturday 9th August. Details on that one nearer the time.
