BANGFACE Weekender is the latest UK party event to have been forced to cancel due to absurd licensing restrictions on sound levels that have made the event unviable.
The statement added: “We simply cannot deliver an event under these restrictions. All ticket holders will be refunded beginning immediately but please be patient whilst we process them all. Massive thanks for all the continued support over what is now 10 years of Bang Face and here’s to many more parties in the future.”
Long-term readers of this website will know that another event much admired here – Glade Festival – also had a roller-coaster history of licensing issues with the authorities, particularly over sound levels at its original site of Wasing Estate in West Berkshire.
