"It is with much regret that we announce the cancellation of Golden Down festival for this year. Unfortunately due to a number of circumstances beyond our control we have come to the realisation that we are unable to stage the festival that we had originally conceived; one that would meet the high expectations of both artists and audience.

We would like to express our sincere regrets to the artists, and to everyone who has been working hard trying to bring Golden Down to fruition. We'd also like to thank the fans who've already bought tickets, and can only apologise that we are not able to deliver the festival that you wanted.
