So sad, went the last 4 years and me, my family and my closest friends have some special memories of some of the best times we ever had!! Good luck in the future
Very sad to hear this. We came for the first time last year and had the best time and loads of amazing memories x
Sad news, I met my husband to be Alastair Park in 2016 dancing to the charlatans, and have some happy memories with good friends, best wishes to you
I'm so very sorry to hear this. My son and I have loved your last two festivals, and were looking forward to this one too. It must be devastating for you guys, and I hope that you are able to pick up the pieces and come back stronger in the future. Best wishes. x
Really sorry to read this. Sending love and hope you are all OK.
Oh pal. You did a great job. It’s been hard going, but be proud of your achievements. You did brilliantly. I’m so sorry it’s over 🎈
Sad end to what was a great wee festival 😢 thanks for the memories and good luck for the future!
Such a shame you were forced to move. My favourite wee festival. Thanks for all the previous years guys. Loads of memories and unearthing of new bands.
You two had an amazing dream which came true for 5 fantastic years,. Be proud of what you've achieved and look to the future, this is not he end. X X
Yasmin Najib seen this coming! Should never have continued to sell tickets and be responsible for more people's cash!
So sad to see another good festival go. Well done on bringing something so good to the town and thanks for the memories x
Aww that's a shame great venue and brilliant wee festival ❤️🎶
Sad news 😢 good luck for the future guys.
We loved EF when we came a couple of years ago. Such a lovely site and friendly vibe. Thank you very much. Great memories.
A real shame but I saw this coming after the venue was changed. Last year was my only Electric Fields festival and we had a fantastic time! There was such a great atmosphere.
Stevie Ruth David Gary Heidi 😭😭😭 gutted but unfortunately their decision to move away from an actual festival to a warehouse and the change of dates has resulted in its downfall. Gonna miss it. Best wee festival in Scotland 🏴
Sad to hear this, some great times over the years and great acts. Hopefully you will have a chance to restart at some time
Sad news, last year's festival has some fantastic memories for me James, Noel Gallagher and Leftfield rocked as did the old School tent. Superb atmosphere and vibe
Went to the last two festivals and they were both brilliant. Alot better festival experience than your bigger festivals. Sad day that this happened.
Very sad Another cracking festival bites the dust.
So gutted to hear this. We had an incredible time with you a couple of years ago, you created a beautiful thing for many people. ❤️
Pleased to see so many understanding and positive comments. This was a great festival and I'm so sorry it's not happening this year. I appreciate this will be more upsetting for you guys especially given all the hard work trying to save it. Be proud of what you achieved and the happy memories you made for me and so many other people. Thanks and best wishes for your next ventures.
Loved EF last year especially James, always in my memory:: great festival x
Shame that it’s come to that as it was a good family festival in a great location

This is so sad - Drumlanrig is beautiful, whereas I have never been in a more soul-less, atmosphere-lacking venue as SWG3 - it sucks the life out of anyone entering it's door.
The ‘our story’ on this page needs a tinker guys ☺️
Ok still no cash what the actual - - - - this is beyond the joke now
I had high hopes and many great memories from the first few years of EF festival. So sad it wen't wrong.
I have replied to e mail and requested a refund on Tuesday night. How long do I need to wait before refund and reply?
Gutted that EF has changed Venue...the forgotten corner of Scotland 🏴 suffers again!!...must admit I was rather suspicious when the festival was earlier than usual🤔...rather late notice ...sure there’s politics involved and not only financially motivated...bitter blow to our area😢...never will return...⚰️
Still no monies what is going on this is the worst service I’ve ever experienced
Keep your chin up guys the festival will still be a success these things happen sometimes keep going x
Lots of other excellent wee festies around...check 'em out here - www.efestivals.co.uk/
All you can do is apologise! Fair play ! Shit happens
Emily Woodhouse 😂
Feel really sad about this, I haven't missed an EF since it morphed out of Comlonglon Rocks.Its been a fantastic event every year but I also feel for the organisers having to make this decision due to finances as it can't have been easy. It's been great for the local area and I have some brilliant memories of them all. I just hope that after Whickerman and now EF now gone others will be able to replace them but I fear the big corperate festivals are squeezing the smaller ones out at times.
What were you thinking was gonna happen with that? Unbelievable piece of communication.
Well done for the quick resolution.
