North Wales-based Safe As Milk festival, scheduled for the 21-23 April, has been cancelled and the company behind the event has gone into administration due to poor ticket sales. The event was a partnership between Newcastle's Tusk Music and Alt.vinyl. Artists set to perform included The Butthole Surfers, Jeff Mills & Tony Allen, Omar Souleyman, Actress, Anna Meredith, Demdike Stare and The Residents.
A statement from the organisers read: "We are very sorry to announce that we have had to take the decision to cancel Safe As Milk Festival. Despite the widespread excitement about the event, we're sorry to report that ticket sales have not reached a level to make the event viable so, despite our best efforts, we have no other option but to cancel".
A creditors meeting is set for the 25 April
