The new OxfordOxford, due to be held at South Park, Oxford from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th September 2014, has been cancelled.
A statement from OxfordOxford says:
"It is with great sadness that we have to cancel the inaugural OxfordOxford. Full refunds will be available to ticket holders from their ticket vendors.
A number of factors in September, including an uncertainty with a previously confirmed artist, alongside poor local ticket sales, have forced this decision. The whole team, including partners, has tirelessly worked around the clock to try to make the event work, but unfortunately we are not in the position to continue any further.
We would like to thank Oxford City Council, our official event partners for their time and support over the past two years of planning, especially the Events Department and the Licensing Authority. We would also like to thank our media partners Jack FM and BBC Introducing in Oxford for all their support.
All of the artists and their teams have been amazing throughout, and we are hugely disappointed that we are unable to give them their shows. Local contractors, ticket vendors, concessions, community groups, clubs and charities who have been involved since its inception have also been fantastic.
Full refunds on all tickets will be issued by your ticket vendor."
Acts confirmed for the music orientated Saturday included Gaz Coombes, Klaxons, Katy B, Christian Gregory, Celeste, Flights of Helios, Balloon Ascents, Robot Swans, Tunng, Pixel Fix, and Dance a la Plage.
