Dead White Air: Another Brighton festival folds

Brighton-based music festivals have something of a blotchy history, and now there's another entertainment Athena B washing up on the pebbles. White Air, which arrived in Sussex last year after a successful run in the Isle Of Wight (hence the name), isn't happening this year.

The Evening Argus explains why:

Organiser Nigel Howell said: "White Air will not be happening this year in Brighton. It was a fantastic festival in 2009, but due to lack of investment this year we cannot run the festival."

White Air combined extreme sports with music - perhaps the only time that the Red Arrows and The Cribs have shared a bill.
