The 2019 Clockenflap Music and Arts festival has been officially called off by its organisers. In a Facebook post sent out at 7.00pm on Friday night, Magnetic Asia said, ‘Due to the escalation of the crisis this week, and therefore the uncertainty this creates for the coming weeks, Clockenflap 2019 will be cancelled.”

Those who have already purchased tickets to the annual live music extravaganza will have their money refunded fully. Details will be sent directly to customers about how to apply for the refund, and the process is expected to be completed within four weeks.

Headlining acts that were scheduled to perform at the festival include British folk rock band Mumford & Sons, and alternative pop stalwart Halsey.
