The festival geared towards 13-18 year olds was due to take place on Friday August 31st in Shoreditch Park.
Festival organisers issued the following statement:
“It is with great sadness that we announce Underage Festival will no longer be taking place this year.”
The powers that be probably made the decision to shut down this event because the area of East London has had its fill of excitement for one year (BBC Radio Hackney Weekend and the London 2012 games). Or they fear there might be trouble.
