OneFest, the Marlborough-based music festival which last year positioned itself as the first big date in the gig-goers calendar, will not be back in 2013.
Instead, organisers told followers on Facebook and Twitter this week, the festival was ‘taking a break’, and would be returning in 2014.
The inaugural HoneyFest was organised in 2011 in support of the Barge Inn community project at Honeystreet, near Pewsey.
When the festival and pub went their separate ways in 2012, the festival – which was held on a cold and wet Saturday in April at Rockley – dropped the H and Y and was renamed OneFest to avoid confusion with any future festivals at the pub.
The festival attracted a unique outdoor performance of the opera Dr Dee by Damon Albarn, the maestro behind Britpop champions Blur, cartoon band Gorillaz and more leftfield works like 2007’s Oriental pop-opera Monkey, Journey to the West, and received attention from the national music press.
