On Saturday 20 August 2011 Swindon Invincible Festival will be taking over the MECA in Regent Circus to keep the party going. This follows decisions by the promoters to downscale the event and move from Lydiard Park to an indoor venue due to the economic climate.
Promoter Steve Causer said, "the current economic situation means we have had to downscale the Swindon Invincible. It is important that we look at the future of the event and the need to ensure what has been one of the most refreshing festivals on the electronic dance circuit in the South West can rise once again and maintain the many accolades it has achieved over the last three years.
“This decision means that the people right across the country who have bought tickets and all our home based fans can still enjoy an amazing night of great dance music. We’d like to send our thanks and love to all musicians, artists, crew and fans who have been involved."
Event organisers are contacting ticket holders about exchanging tickets for the MECA event, or receiving a full refund.
Details of acts at the MECA event will be announced by early August.
