Bestival 2019 will not take place according to Dorset Police.
A spokesperson for Dorset Police commented that they were contacted by Bestival's event owners stating that "there are no plans to run a Bestival 2019 event".
The spokesperson also claimed that Dorset Police were yet to receive payment for policing last year's festival: "The payment of our 2018 policing services invoice, totalling £141,176 to cover our policing of both Camp Bestival and Bestival is still outstanding."
This news of no payments follows rumours that artists from last year's edition, including Plan B and Rudimental, have also yet to be paid for playing.
Bestival's sister event, Camp Bestival is still scheduled to go ahead this year from 25th - 28th July featuring Goldie, Nile Rogers and more.
