Dear Outlines Fan,  

It is our sad duty to tell you that we have had to cancel this year's Outlines festival and have today issued full refunds to anyone who bought a ticket.  

Despite a great atmosphere and line up,  last year's event lost money and we realised that we would not be able to afford to run it again.  We have been looking for a business partner to take the event on - not least because so many of you seemed keen to come back next year.  However, we have had no success and so reluctantly have had to pull the plug.  

Full refunds have been issued today through Gigantic.

We do not expect to see Outlines festival return and want to thank all you people one last time for helping us make it the great event that it was, while it was...

The Outlines team.
