Underage Festival Cancelled
Organisers at the annual Underage Festival in London have officially announced the cancellation of this year’s event, with The Olympics being cited as the main issue. The festival had previously taken place in London’s Victoria Park but due to the Olympics the park was unavailable this year.
Initially the festival was due to move to Shoreditch Park and early plans were positive. However the organisers have released a statement saying:
“Unforeseen circumstances with our site hire mean we are no longer able to meet production levels and we do not want to risk the safety of an event for 13-18 year olds.”
Full refunds will be made available and the festival is set to return home to Victoria Park next year.

The song was played by Panda Bear who curated the first weekly Animal Collective Radio Show.
