GOODWOOD bosses are offering revellers a 50 per cent refund after a power cut stopped last night’s Groove Armada concert.
Thousands of concert-goers went home disappointed after a regional power failure forced organisers at the Goodwood Racecourse in Chichester to abandon DJ Andy Cato’s live set.
Now they have offered people who bought tickets a 50 per cent refund or the option to transfer their ticket to another event.
The power failure was caused by a mains cable being damaged in last night’s strong winds.
A spokeswoman for Goodwood said: ‘Goodwood Racecourse would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused by the cancellation of the post-racing DJ performance.
‘We would also like to thank all of our customers for their patience and understanding.
‘The decision to cancel was taken following a regional power failure, which meant the venue could not operate safely.
‘We understand the failure was caused by a mains cable being damaged in the local vicinity at around 9.20pm which affected areas to the East of Chichester.
‘The decision to cancel the concert was not taken lightly, but we have to put the safety of our customers first.
‘We trust racegoers who were here for the evening understand the issue was caused by events beyond our control, and we hope to welcome them back to what promises to be a great evening for Dermot O’Leary on Friday June 15th.’
Anyone who bought tickets for last night’s event should call the Goodwood Ticket Office on 01243 755055 from 9.30am on Monday.
The ability to transfer tickets includes the option of going to the Dermot O’Leary concert on Friday or Mike Skinner’s on June 22.
