Fflam - Wales's new contemporary music festival, which was originally due to happen at Swansea's Singleton Park over the weekend of Friday 13th until Sunday 15th July has been cancelled.

The event was postponed a week before it was supposed to take place, with 'consistently bad weather conditions' being blamed for it's postponement. But despite assurances from the festival organisers that the "the festival WILL take place", the event has now been forced to cancel altogether.

A statement issued this afternoon reads as follows:

"It is with great regret that we confirm the cancellation of the Fflam Festival for 2007. After the initial postponement due to torrential weather conditions, we have made every possible effort to try and secure a new date for the festival this summer. Unfortunately, we cannot find a date that suits all parties and due to artist availability, we are not in a position to deliver the brilliant line up of bands we always intended if we go ahead.

At this stage, we are left with no option but to cancel the festival for 2007 and put all our efforts into making it a huge success in 2008. We would like to thank all the people in the local community who have stuck by us and supported us throughout the past couple of months. For those who bought tickets, full refunds will be available from point of purchase
."

Fflam was expected to have acts including Friday headliner Keane, Saturday headliner Placebo and Sunday headliner Manic Street Preachers, as well as Levellers, The Feeling, The Ordinary Boys, The Stranglers and more - click here to read who was down to play.
