Wheels and Fins Festival has been cancelled due to “financial constraints”.

It was set to take place from 7th-8th September at Joss Bay Beach in Broadstairs (near Margate), with sets from Friendly Fires, Mystery Jets, Slaves, Willie J Healey, Ladybird, Queen Zee, Feet, Ditz and more.

A statement reads:

"It is with absolute heart-breaking agony that due to financial constraints on our small growing independent festival we have been forced into the devastating decision that Wheels and Fins festival 2019 has been cancelled.

“To the artists, traders and suppliers who we have worked tirelessly with all year, we apologise for the huge inconvenience this causes. To our loyal ticket holders we are truly devastated to disappoint you and thank you for your continued support.

“We will have a more detailed statement to make in the coming days and ask that you please bear with us as we work with our ticketing partners and legal representatives to prepare the next steps."
