PopEx ≫ 2001 ≫ Guildford Festival RIP

Guildford Festival seriously in the red...

Guildford Festival has gone bust, after losing 120,000 pounds at this year's event - and they're blaming Catatonia. And the rain.

You may remember Catatonia cancelling all tour dates - including their headlining slot at Guildford - while denying they were to split up. And then splitting up.

Reports that "giving popEx a fistfull of free tickets in an attempt to promote the festival was clearly a sign of desperation" were being denied by popEx officials as we went to press.
