The BARE In The Woods festival will not go ahead next month, it has been announced.
Organisers confirmed this afternoon that the popular event, which was due to place in Garryhinch Woods in Portarlington from 9th-11th June, has been postponed due to organisational issues.
In a statement, they said that the "limited time available for us to comply with the conditions of our licence has realistically proven not enough".
"Now, more than ever, is our utmost wish to stage a well-run, safe and ultimately entertaining event for all of our patrons, and with this limited amount of time available and duty of care in mind, we feel it wise to postpone the event until we can fully comply with the high standards we wish to bring to bear in our young festival.
"We would like to assure all of our patrons who have bought tickets for the festival that we are working hard to ensure BARE in the Woods will go ahead at a later date but in the meantime, fully understand if they would like to avail of refunds."
Customers who bought tickets for the festival have been advised that refund information will be available on the event website here on Friday May 26th.
This is a shame but hopefully we'll see it return before long!
