THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Oxford Folk Festival has been cancelled. A statement says:

The organisers of Oxford Folk Festival look to create the best live music and dance event in Oxford that we possibly can for our audiences, and for the performers, morris dancers, stewards and all those who make it happen.

Despite having booked a great roster of artists for this year a number of factors are making it impossible for us to hold the festival in 2011. In the current economic climate people are, understandably, more reluctant to commit their hard-earned cash to buy tickets in advance, whilst also costs have increased, with the VAT rise contributing amongst other factors.

We have made as many economies as we can but with the increasing costs of venue and equipment hire, insurance and so on it's simply not financially feasible to continue the festival this year.

We really hope to be back in the future and, in the meantime, we wish to express our sincere thanks for your support during the 8 years since we started.

We assure you that all tickets sold already will be refunded, and we will not breach the trust we have built with our customers and suppliers at any price.
