The festival was shelved after authorities inspected the site and said it was "no longer considered to be safe for a public audience". Organisers blamed this on recent "adverse weather conditions" in the area. The festival was scheduled to take place in Heslaker Farm in Skipton, North Yorkshire.

The festival was due to be headlined by Tom Vek, Jamie Woon and Jamie xx, with Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Dry The River, Summer Camp, Mount Kimbie, Dananananaykroyd and Dels also booked to play.
