Gallery: Wolvestock through the years

As Wolvestock is cancelled due to poor ticket sales, we take a look at the popular event over the years.

Wolverhampton’s annual country music festival Wolvestock which was due to be held on July 26 and 27 in what would have been its 20th anniversary year, has been cancelled.

Wolverhampton City Council have pulled the plug on the two-day festival due to poor advance ticket sales.

Bosses said people who had already bought tickets for the event, which takes place at the Civic and Wulfrun Halls could request a face value refund.

A statement regarding the cancellation was posted on the Wolverhampton Civic Hall website this afternoon. 

It said: “We are sorry to announce that Wolvestock 2014 has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Face value refunds are available at point of purchase on return of tickets.”

Wolvestock, which started life as a free festival, used to be held open-air in Hickman Park in Bilston and then East Park.
