The collapse of the Beachdown Festival at the end of summer is now wrecking the lives of the promoters - Joe Pidgeon is struggling to cope with the debts generated by the flop and has put his house on the market, reports The Argus:
He said that although plans were falling into place to repay all ticket holders, some of whom paid hundreds of pounds for luxury tents, he was still “working tirelessly” to rectify the situation.
After almost a month the Beachdown directors say they are making progress on repaying those people who bought tickets from local vendors after admitting it was up to the festival to reimburse the customers.
Not, of course, the best time to be selling your house. It's a long, unhappy ending for everyone.
