GO.GO gone: London’s women’s festival cancelled

Organizers pull the plug on the 3rd annual weekend event for women

GO.GO gone: London’s women’s festival cancelled
04 May 2012

London’s three-day women’s festival, particularly popular with lesbian and bisexuals, GO.GO has been cancelled.

Organizers of the event created for women in the UK posted on the website: ‘2012 has proved to be a very challenging year, and due to this we do not feel we would be able to deliver a festival to the standard that our artists and audience deserve’.

This is the second women’s concert in the last week that’s been cancelled because of a challenging economy.

The Manchester-based Ladyrock festival was cancelled yesterday. Though headliners for the festival were confirmed, this women’s-only music event director cited financial difficulties for the cancellation of the show.
