Shares of Vince Power’s Music Festivals group have been suspended from trading as the company pursues other funding avenues.
Music Festivals hasn't been able to secure those additional funds, with board has requesting that trading of its ordinary shares be suspended after their price dipped to 2.13p after starting at 66.5p in June 2011 when the group floated on the stock market.
Music Festivals owns four summer music festivals in total: Hop Farm, Feis Festival, Benicassim in Spain and Costa de Fuego, which was launched in Spain this year.
The group is hoping to pursue a number of different proposals to gain funding, with a further announcement expected shortly, according to eFestivals.
Hop Farm planned Leonard Cohen gigs – the only two in the UK this year- were moved to Wembley Arena a month ago “due to unforeseen circumstances.” A statement from Vince Power said the move had “nothing to do with the suitability of Hop Farm as a venue.”
