Festival Cancellation


After some difficult conversations, it’s with a heavy heart and deep regret that, due to financial pressures, we announce to you the cancellation of The Heart of Rock and Blues festival 2015."We are so very sad to have to cancel a project that has been so dear to us for the past two years. We can't express how heart breaking this decision has been to make. The festival environment this year has been incredibly difficult for many small, independent festivals and with low advanced tickets sales it has proven to be too challenging for us to overcome”.We felt it was important to communicate the cancellation as soon as possible. I know that there will be many of you, both artists and festival goers that will be very disappointed at this announcement and we totally understand this. We are totally gutted to have had to make this tough decision. Please rest assured that all advanced ticket sales will be refunded at point.We remain committed to promoting the Welsh music scene and bringing quality live music to Mid Wales. Thank you all for your kind support.
