Tiny Cow, organisers of the recent new Hope and Glory music festival in Liverpool cancelled the second of the two days after a “chaotic” first day that saw music fans forced to wait for hours due to overcrowding.

Fans, many of whom had travelled from all parts of the UK for the weekend of August 5/6 were promised a line-up of bands including James, the Lightning Seeds, Razorlight and Charlotte Church were treated to a “no festival today” statement from Tiny Cow CEO Lee O’Hanlon, who blamed production difficulties for the collapse, along with accusations that Liverpool City Council had stolen food provided for performers.

It is thought that those who paid to attend the aborted festival will not get any of their costs back.

O’Hanlon’s event management company Tiny Cow use the advertising slogan “we make it happen”.
