The 2019 instalment of the festival was cancelled just days before tens of thousands of revellers were due to arrive for the Cornwall-based event. Forecasters issued severe weather warnings ahead of a storm that brought heavy rain and strong winds to the region.
A statement at the time read: “Following full consultation with all of the relevant authorities, including independent safety advisors, Devon and Cornwall Police, emergency services and the Met Office, a final decision was made this evening.
“The safety of you, the fans and attendees, as well as performers and crew comes first, and the potential risk is too severe for the event to go ahead at this time.”
