The organisers of the Lancaster Music Festival have revealed that there will be no event next year - to give them more preparation time for a tenth anniversary event in 2019.

An event spokesperson says team has decided to spend 2018 as "a fallow year", preparing for what's described as "a festival of festivals" in 2019 instead.

The community interest company behind the festival, Lancaster Music CIC, will still organise and collaborate on numerous smaller live music events next year while new financial backing is secured for the festival's comeback.

An event spokesperson said: "Each year the festival appears to run like clockwork but only because of intense and meticulous planning and preparation over the preceding twelve months.

"So nine years of almost continuous planning has, as you might expect, depleted our reserves and a fallow year is unavoidable. This follows in the proud traditions of other festivals such as Glastonbury.

"Now in its 9th year, the Lancaster Music Festival is about to fill the venues and open spaces of Lancaster with music and merriment. Each year the annual October festival improves on the last, as attested by so many festival goers.

"We would encourage festival goers to make the most of this year’s five days of back-to-back and wall-to-wall live music events, utilising our Official Guide, Festival App and website; Take Monday Off and keep October 2019 open for the glorious 10th."
