Bjork gets annoyed, won't go wild

Bjork - the planned headliner for Vince Power and Geoff Oakes Go Wild In The Country Knebworth fest - has pulled out with a week to go.

If that sounds last minute, according to her explanation, it sums up the festival's approach:

"Organisers Geoff Oakes and Vince Power for Renaissance have been unable to secure any staging, sound and lighting for this festival making it impossible for the headline artists to perform and are unable to fulfill their contractual obligations to all of the artists contracted to perform at their event," a statement read.

Are there now so many festivals we're facing a scrap for rigs and speakers? Has it come to this?
