“After twenty years at the forefront of festival culture, we couldn’t be more proud of all we’ve achieved and of the beautiful community we’ve created around us.

“But we now find ourselves in a different time – the world has changed, and it’s time for us to evolve further.”

Continuing on they said: “What we know is that we’re on the cusp of something great, something bold and new, which we can’t wait to share with you all when it’s ready.

“So outwardly we go quiet for a short time, but behind the scenes, we’ll be busy reinventing ourselves, preparing to re-emerge in our new form.”

While the female-led team has launched numerous multi-disciplinary projects in its 20-year history, each one more ambitious than the last.
