The fourth annual Bloom festival which was due to take place from August 14-16 at Chepstow Race course has been cancelled.

The three day festival had artists such as Noah & The Whale (pictured above), Mercury music prize nominee Speech Debelle, Utah Saints and Frankmusik lined up to play.

Ticket holders are being offered the chance to exchange their Bloom tickets for either the Beachdown Festival (August 28) or for the Big Chill which takes place this weekend (August 6-9).

All 2009 ticket holders will also recieve a free ticket for the 2010 Bloom event.

Bloom festival organiser Olivia Chapman has explained: “It’s been an incredibly difficult decision for us to make, as Bloom is an independently run organisation, built from our very heart and souls. We have worked tirelessly for the best part of nine months on this event which makes it very hard for us to walk away from it. However we have to think of the bigger picture and feel that we are making the right decision”.
