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.

This content originally from my popular (in the tail end of the '90s) website popex.com. Some of this written by other people, but mainly originally created by me. I moved the content here here when the website finally shut down in the early '00s. Hopefully this ignites memories (assuming you find it).
