Buckinghamshire's Another World Festival cancelled
Snoop Dogg and Mark Ronson were set to headline two-day event this weekend (August)
The festival was due to take place this weekend between August 8 and 10 in Silverstone Woodlands, Buckinghamshire, and dubbed itself the 'UK's only quality-first festival'.
However, a statement released on Monday (August 4) revealed the bad news. "It is with great sadness and regret we announce the cancellation of the Another World Festival 2014. Due to unforeseen circumstances the event will no longer be taking place this weekend at Silverstone Woodlands. Tickets can be refunded in full by contacting your ticket agent."
Organisers do still plan to stage some sort of event though, and urged ticket holders to stay with them until a replacement is announced. "We are working hard to replace this event with others very soon within the coming weeks and hope you will check back here on Wednesday at 4pm to hear our exciting new plans."
Another World organisers aim was to take the hassle out of the festival experience by offering top food, some apparently at Michelin-starred level, and a quick queuing system for both the bar and entry to the festival as well as flushing toilets.
Wretch 32, MK, Danny Howard, Sigma, Artful Dodger, Lisa Maffia, Ms Dynamite and Romeo were also scheduled to perform alongside Snoop Dogg and Ronson.
