The organiser of Electric Fields has announced that the 2019 event has been cancelled, and the company has ceased trading.

The cancellation comes less than two months after it was revealed that the event was set to move venue, from Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries and Galloway to SWG3 in Finnieston. The change of venue left festivalgoers unhappy, with many taking to social media to ask for refunds for the cost of their ticket.

A statement was released on the event’s Facebook page this morning, with the organiser stating that it is with a “heavy heart” that the event had to be cancelled.

The statement read: “This decision has not come lightly, and we have put in our all to try avoid this outcome, however we have been faced with challenges that we simply cannot overcome. As of today, Electric Fields ceases trading. For information on ticket refunds, please contact your location of purchase.

“We cannot thank you enough for your support over the years and we are truly sorry that we have not been able to make this work. Never did we think the party we threw in a field in Thornhill for 100 of our friends would turn into a party for 7,000 in the grounds of a castle. Especially not in five short years. But it did, and that is thanks to all of you who came along and made it what it was.”
