A three-day music festival in the Conwy Valley had been cancelled, with organisers blaming adverse weather conditions.
Friday saw the first of the three day Electric Wave Festival at Surf Snowdonia in Dolgarrog, headlined by top club promoters, Cream, and various DJ’s.
But both today and Sunday’s acts, including Bez from the Happy Mondays and Badly Drawn Boy, have been cancelled at the eleventh hour, due to what organisers described as ‘adverse weather conditions’.
In a statement released this afternoon, Surf Snowdonia tweeted: “Following the decision by Event Safety officers, it is with huge regret that we must announce the cancellation of the remainder of our Electric Wave Festival.
“This decision has been made due to adverse weather conditions.
“Whilst we are aware that this will be extremely disappointing to hear, the safety of our visitors is paramount and the advice of our safety experts must be strictly adhered to in this situation.
“Please be patient with us whilst we begin the process of investigating ticket refunds with our insurers.

“Again, our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
“We will have more information for you as soon as possible.
Surf Snowdonia continues to operate although due to the adverse weather conditions Crash and Splash and Blob have been closed. Surfing remains unaffected.”
In March, announcing the line-up for the three day summer event, organisers said they hoped to bring up to 3,000 music lovers to the Conwy Valley venue.
Ed Mackie who lined up the acts, having previously worked with organisers of Festival No 6, Glass Butter Beach, Cream Fields and Wakestock, said he hoped to turn the long-weekender into an annual surfer-inspired fixture for North Wales.
