A music festival in Wales set to feature British singer Tony Hadley and Go West has been axed due to poor sales.
The stars had been due to perform at Gwent's Raglan Festival on 16 and 17 June (12), but organisers have been forced to cancel the gig after only 200 tickets were sold.
The festival's treasurer Shirley Hughes says, "We just couldn't understand it, we can only put it down to the economic recession. We want a festival for 2013 and this would have wiped us out for next year.
"Local people have supported it very well but we had expected great numbers and Tony Hadley fans. It was a very hard decision for all of us to make..."
A series of community events will now be staged in place of the festival. The British music scene has suffered a number of festival cancellations in recent months - events including Golden Down, Sonisphere and Cloud 9 have all been scrapped due to poor ticket sales.
