Electric Picnic has become the latest music festival to be cancelled due to concerns over COVID-19.

The organisers said the cancellation had been "unavoidable" and that they had a responsibility to the fans, artists, crews, suppliers and sponsors.

Anyone who purchased tickets can either receive a refund or choose to retain them, as they will be valid for next year's festival.

John Caddell and Dee Reddy discussed this in our weekly music slot as well as the deaths of rock and roll pioneer Little Richard and Kraftwerk's Florian Schneider.
