Smokie Blues 2007 Festival is cancelled

It is with deepest regret that we have to announce that the Arbroath Smokie Blues Festival 2007 will not now take place.

This was to have been the year that we lifted the status of the visiting acts to truly international star status, with plans for a 1000-seat ticketed marquee venue and full supporting pub trail. We have been working with the Economic development Department of Angus Council since late 2006 to attempt to achieve this.

With increased status comes increased costs and thus increased risk - so we needed underwriting to ensure that all the acts and all the trades providing the marquee, generators, PA, toilets, security, etc., etc., would get paid should our first-year ticket revenue not quite cover costs.

We had asked for the Arbroath Common Good Fund to act as underwriter but, when they finally got round to discussing it properly, they decided to defer any decision till after the election - despite the fact that we had warned that we were now up against a final deadline. You simply cannot organise a festival at this level – or expect acts of the desired quality to be available – inside two months.  (read the Chief Executive's report here)

So we have to offer our deepest apologies to all the loyal blues fans who have supported us over the last three years and to all the bands – from some 20 nations – who had been hanging back in the hope that we would get a sensible decision and that they could be booked.

But thanks for all the support you have given us.

Alfie, Brian & Lyla
