THE future of a Gosport music festival has been left in doubt after the council said provisional booking of the land has been cancelled.

Gosport Borough Council posted on its website that four-day music festival Gosfest, run by Eventures International Ltd, will not be taking place at Stokes Bay.

Eventures was given the new site provisionally last month but in a letter addressed to the company from the council, it says their booking for the festival has been cancelled.

A spokeswoman from Eventures said: ‘We are not sure why the council has said we cannot use Stokes Bay for Gosfest.

‘We don’t know what will happen to the music festival now.

‘We received a letter from them but it just said it was for a number of developments which had come to light.

‘We don’t know what they are.’

Gosfest was expecting to draw 30,000 spectators to Stokes Bay in July and August to see headline acts James Arthur, Union J and Scouting for Girls.
