Severe Weather Forces Festival Cancellation

CORNWALL, UK (VIP-NEWS) — Strong winds sweeping the country have forced the Boardmasters music festival in Cornwall (UK) to be called off.

Organisers of the festival at Watergate near Newquay, in Cornwall, said the "magnitude of the conditions is too severe for the arena site to be opened".

The festival`s surf competition went ahead at Fistral Beach as planned.

Organisers said: "We deeply regret the disappointment caused to festival goers on the final day of Boardmasters 2014."

Campers at the Watergate site reported waterlogged conditions and about 20 tents blown away.

The three-day festival, due to be headlined by Bastille on Sunday night, attracts about 30,000 people for surfing and music.
