Scarborough Fair 2016

 

We all were thrilled when we heard that the Scarborough Fair was back after an 18 year hiatus. Yup, that Scarborough Fair from the time of Simon & Garfunkel, although they were not making an appearance, but a host of other big names were, including Richard Ashcroft, Everything Everything and Lianne La Havas.

PRESS RELEASE

 

Brand New Scarborough Festival is Cancelled.
By David Renshaw
Apr 27, 2016
A festival in North Yorkshire due to be headlined by Richard Ashcroft has been pulled by organisers.

News that Scarborough Fair Festival has been cancelled was announced today (April 27) with organisers blaming “logistical issues”. Ashcroft was among the headliners of the festival, which also promised performances from Lianne La Havas, Billy Bragg, Everything Everything and Field Music among others.

The decision arrives just one month before the three-day event was due to take place. Scarborough Fair Festival was expected to be held between May 27 and 29 at Redcliffe Farm in the Lebberston area.
A statement on the festival’s website explained the situation to ticket holders: “After much consideration, it is with great sadness that we have to announce we can’t put Scarborough Fair Festival on this year. The organisers have been left with no choice but to call off the three day camping festival due to logistical issues.

“After 18 months of hard work, the last 18 days have been the hardest.

“As tough a decision as this has been for the organising team, we feel it’s only fair to pull the event several weeks before, rather than get into a situation where we let more people down nearer the time.

“All ticket holders will receive a face value refund. Once again, you have our apologies – and our immense gratitude for your support.”

Tickets were priced at up to £100 for the event, which was due to make its debut on 2016. Other artists on the bill included Public Service Broadcasting, I Am Kloot, Teleman and Kiko Bun.
