Deborah Armstrong, the creative director of London Pleasure Gardens, has resigned from her position following the fall-out from this year's disastrous Bloc Festival.
Armstrong was previously the creative director at the Shangri-La area at Glastonbury Festival and led the team which transformed a dock in East London into a destination for live music and festival events.
However, upon resigning Armstrong claimed that the venue has not turned out like she imagined. Bloc in particular was a disaster, having to be cancelled half way through the night following fears for attendees health and safety.
Bloc 2012 was due to see performances from a range of electronic and dance acts as well as a headline slot from Snoop Dogg.
Issuing a statement about her resignation, Armstrong said: "It is with the deepest of regrets that I announce my resignation from London’s Pleasure Gardens. I am enormously proud of the huge transformation that my team and I have achieved so far.
"In only three months, we remediated what was for decades a blighted, inaccessible and formerly contaminated site. We've built the foundations of the Pleasure Gardens vision - a unique public leisure and cultural space in London.
Adding: "We have seen but the first inkling of what LPG can be and I do hope its artistic and cultural potential is supported moving into 2013 and beyond. The cultural and regenerative work we have done is certainly the most extraordinary test case."
Armstrong will continue to work with Glastonbury ahead of their 2013 return and is also working with Radiohead ahead of their UK arena tour later this year.
