Another World Festival canceled due to sheep poo
Another World Festival wishes the sheep poo was in another world.
Nothing stinks more than a festival postponed (or shall I say, postponed).
I can literally go on with these crappy puns forever but let’s get stuck into the woes of Bristol Festival Another World, which was meant to start today, 3 August and end on Sunday, 5 August; you know the usual.
The festival was cancelled after a health and safety inspector highlighted the “potential risk to health that the abundance of sheep faeces poses.”
Now, sheep poo isn’t a stranger to farm fields nor to festivals, however the abundance thereof was described as “distressing” and “on all fields” which was to host the likes of Bad Company, Phuture, Alix Perez, DJ Pierre, Paul Woolford, A Guy Called Gerald and more.
Poo on you!
Shit gets interesting considering site manager Colin Agius defended his fields in a Facebook post saying he had “many fields with no problem” and that he “offered several options to the organiser to sort this”
He also went on to say that the “main event organiser never even attended the site today and tried several times to call him but we were not answered.”
Naturally an event cancellation leads to monetary problems, with a group for the thousands left out of pocket having formed on Facebook.
Organiser Lee Boyaka is going with the ‘T&C’ refund policy: “Where an outdoor Event is cancelled or curtailed because of adverse weather, license, terrorism or other issues beyond our control, we shall not be liable to make any refund or pay any compensation”.
Apparently the event already went through 2 venue changes, unpaid crew and the classic ‘booking a DJ without telling him/her.’
While Another World Festival claims to be coming back in 2019, right now they are knee deep in shit.
