'The person being interviewed is not one of the organisers and his points are his points and we have asked for the article to be taken down'

They continued, 'The Electric Picnic team remain hopeful that the vaccination roll out will be complete in sufficient time to allow the festival to go ahead obviously but remain in Government hands for that.'

In May, they released a statement announcing the festival would not be going ahead.

Festival goers were given the option to request a refund or keep their tickets for the 2021 festival.
