After violence outside, this year's Pointless Festival in Philadeplhia was cancelled by organisers R5.

The trouble started when a number of people attempted to gain access to the festival, held in the First Unitarian Church. Staff tried to keep those without wristbands out, and hurry those with inside, but the unwristbanded refused to leave. Police were called, and when the unwristbanded still stood their ground, violence between the police and gatecrashers broke out.

R5 promoter Sean Agnew has indicated they'd be prepared to axe the Pointless Festival entirely rather than risk their licence on the Church.
