According to the BBC Petey D is going to make it up to the fans by performing a free gig somewhere...

Its hardly clear that the whole event is cancelled. A muddled statement that.
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.

"There are a couple of interesting links below which highlight the attitude of the police to what was going to be the best music event ever in Wiltshire."

Rose Tree Jam had a MUCH better line up / location

I think it's a clear statement giving an explanation.
 
It is just not a brief statement saying everything is cancelled, which is what is needed as a headline or bold section in the message.

The section of the statement saying "this draconian action taken by the Police make it impossible to run the event at the end of August. To say we are surprised and devastated would be an understatement" makes clear that the event is off.
 
The use of the words "impossible" and "devastated" makes the whole situation clear.

I would not have gone meself, but this is a joke wait until the last minute to decide that pete could not play.. The truth be known is that the police could not get the staff to cover the weekend, so come with some bol****s about disorder. it just makes me mad that the police can do this  >:(

So, Rosebud, you're saying that the Police realised they could not raise the numbers of officers for the weekend that they had planned.  This is very interesting. Is this something you know as fact?

Wow. I would definitely pay to see The Police. I still remember the shock of Sting leaving The Police. 
 
De do do do De da da da
 
I sometimes think about playing De do do do de da da da at a Wyle Valley Hunt Ball at the old Cranbourne Chase Girls School (before it closed down) in the main hall up on the first floor at the top of a rotunda style staircase in New Wardour Castle.  I must have played it about 10 times that night after repeated requests and we went on until 3am just playing Blondie and Police after 1am.

I gave up in '89. My brother Neil was really very good when on form and was quite popular in local night clubs for ages (I tended to do mobile parties and more distant clubs, such as GWR in Cheddar and a place in Shepton Mallet I forget the name of now). Neil's son, Ben, DJs now which must be due to Neil's influence. It's all very different now with almost no talking and using tracks on CDs and DVDs instead of vinyl on double-decks.

a few good comments on this subject.....
i cant understand how the show could carry on if as its reports only 150 tickets were actually sold.... the organisers certainly wouldnt get their money back with that small amount oging would they???
