A controversial music event has been cancelled by organisers.

The Moo Project was set to be held on fields off Norcross Lane, in Norcross, on August 3, but has been put back to next year.

The event, which featured DJs playing to hundreds of revellers in May, was deemed a success by those who attended - and plans were put in place to host it again with 500 people expected to attend.

However, a statement posted on The Moo Projects Facebook page notified ticketholders the event has been cancelled.

The post read: “It is with regret we are having to cancel our next event on Saturday 3 August 2013 until next year due to reasons beyond our control.

“We now feel this is the catalyst needed for us to change the whole dynamic of the event and we will soon be in discussions with all the relevant authorities in a bid to bring you one big capacity event each year featuring some of the biggest global acts and internationally recognised artists.”

A full refund will be given to ticketholders and other events are in the pipeline.

The Gazette reported on Tuesday that Carleton councillor May Gandhi was urging residents to strongly object to the August plans after a young family claimed the music disrupted their weekend.

Coun Michael Vincent, chairman of Wyre Council’s Licensing Committee, said: “The licence was approved because the only obstacle we received to it was from Environmental Health.

“The organisers agreed to the changes and environmental health withdrew their objection.”
