GuilFest hoping to make 2014 return

By | Published on Tuesday 30 July 2013


The organisers of GuilFest are hoping to bring the festival back next year. As previously reported, the 21 year old event went into administration last September after poor ticket sales left it with debts of over £300,000.

This year, Live Nation put on a new event, called Magic Summer Live, on GuilFest’s site and traditional dates, which seems to have gone well. Live Nation is apparently keen to do all that again next year, but GuilFest founder Tony Scott has told eFestivals that he hopes Guildford Council will allow him and his team to return instead.

To that end, the festival has posted a plea to its website, asking fans to show public support for GuilFest, in order to convince the council that there is a desire to see it return.
