Zapfest - scheduled for this coming weekend (July 12) in Oxford's South Park - has been cancelled.
The all-dayer was due to feature the likes of This Town Needs Guns, Jonquil, Keyboard Choir, Sam Issac, Operahouse and SixNationState.
"Zapfest is an idea dreamt up due to a great love for festivals and a need for something to make Oxford more enjoyable for residents young and old. It will be a one day festival, a musical delight, a concert, rock show, in fact whatever you want to call it."
"Due to unforeseen circumstances Zapfest has had to be cancelled. Over much deliberation we have come to this decision. This is a decision that has not come lightly as we have spent over a year organising the event and have invested a lot of time and money into it. Most of all it is something that we really believed in and wanted it to work. There are a few factors that have forced us to cancel which we can't go into detail about. We can only apologies for any inconvenience that has been caused to you all. Please return your ticket ticket to the place of purchase for all full refund."
Any Londoners who were going: why not drop in on our DiScover Club on July 12 instead? Playing for free, from 4pm, at Notting Hill Arts Club: My Sad Captains, Redjetson and Kyte. Details HERE. JAG over.
