The Isle Of Man Festival was scheduled to begin on the 6th July 2013 with a line-up including Johnny Marr, Wretch 32, Primal Scream, Paloma Faith and Ministry Of Sound – the festival had attracted sponsorship from the likes of MTV; despite this organisers have today been forced to cancel the event due to poor ticket sales.

The below press release has just been posted:

The Isle of Man Festival scheduled at Noble’s Park on 6 July 2013 is to be cancelled.

“At this time, the event can’t move further forward due to the lack of ticket sales. The risk in pursuing the event would put businesses on and off the Island in jeopardy.

“A great Festival was planned for the Isle of Man – with global artists, international and local media partners and world reaching sponsors. Sadly, this cannot now be realised.

“The organisers wish to thank all those who committed their support and those people who did purchase tickets.

“Ticket refunds should be directed to the agent from where tickets were purchased (i.e. PayPal or the Villa Marina and Gaiety Theatre).”

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
