Perth’s latest festival, InchFest has been cancelled following an announcement on Twitter today, 23rd of April, 2018.

InchFest that was due to take place next Saturday has been cancelled, organisers have said in a statement.

Organiser Jack Daily said: “I’m really really sorry but the council have turned around and said it’s a no-go for this Saturday, the event will instead be postponed to most likely July time. Sorry for the inconvenience, but thank you very very much for your interest in the event.

They were saying for such an event to go ahead they need longer for planning and more money for stewarding, fencing, policing etc.

On the bright side, they are still very much up for supporting the event, and with the additional time we can turn it into a much bigger event with sponsorship backing.”

A provisional booking was granted according to organisers.

A spokesperson for Perth and Kinross Council said: “Following a meeting with the promoter of Inch Fest, it has been agreed to postpone the event due to issues in terms of public safety and noise. Perth & Kinross Council will work with the promoter to deliver the event successfully later on in the summer.”
