Major UK Music Festival Gets Cancelled Because It Was Too Muddy

We all know that UK festivals can become mud baths thanks to the rain.

Usually you just have to put your wellies on, hope that your tent is as waterproof as advertised and get on with it. However, the weather condition at this weekend's Y Not festival were so bad that the event had to be ended a day early.

Posts from festival goers prove just how bad it was:

And the Vaccines, who were scheduled to perform alongside the Stereophonics and Two Door Cinema Club, posted an apology for not being able to play:

In a statement on the festival's website, a spokesperson said: "Unfortunately we've had to take the difficult decision to cancel Sunday due to the adverse weather conditions across the weekend, after consulting all the relevant authorities.

"The safety of our guests, performers and crew is our primary concern and the potential risk was too severe for Sunday to go ahead.

"We are very sorry for the disappointment and disruption caused to everyone who was looking forward to the final day of the festival. We understand that people will have questions about refunds. We will be giving all our guests further information about this over the coming days."
