It’s bad news for Cate Le Bon’s nascent all-day festival Mas Mas, I’m afraid. The event, which was meant to happen on 28 Aug, has now been cancelled over licensing problems, with no chance of being reinstated.

Billed to take place in Cardigan, Wales, on the banks of the river Teifi, it now won’t because, confirm River’s Edge (the team behind the festival), of a “failure to obtain the necessary entertainment licence”.

A statement on Le Bon’s site reads: “River’s Edge would like to apologise for the inconvenience this causes and apologise to, and thank, all the artists and ticket-buyers, particularly Cate Le Bon herself, whose performance and personal contribution to the programme would have ensured a successful and iconic event”.

Had it gone ahead, Mas Mas was set to feature Perfume Genius as a headliner, as well as Sweet Baboo, Euros Childs, Gwenno, R Seilog, H Hawkline and Cate herself. Sigh.
