This years Wild In The Country Festival has been cancelled - two days before it had been due to take place.

In a statement, organisers said the festival in Knebworth had “become the latest in a series of festivals that have suffered from a unique and well-documented set of market forces this summer."

The news comes less than a week after the event's main headliner Bjork pulled out, calling the festival “volatile”.

The singer also accused organisers of failing to provide production equipment. An accusation they have denied.

Organisers have said they will make every effort to ensure that ticket purchases will be refunded.
