Faenol Festival has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales.

Organiser and opera singer Bryn Terfel announced the cancellation today (August 5) on the Welsh festival's official website, Faenolfestival.com.

"Unfortunately, advance ticket sales in this challenging economic climate have not been sufficient for us to feel confident that we can move ahead with the full festival," Terfel wrote.

Athlete and Shed Seven were on the bill for the August 27-30 event, held near Bangor, while Westlife were due to headline. The boy band will now play a stand-alone replacement show at Venue Cymru in Llandudno on August 27. Those with tickets to Faenol Festival will be given the opportunity to attend the concert free of charge. Alternatively, they can also get a full refund by returning their tickets to the point of purchase by August 13.
