Bestival music festival will not return in 2019, police have been told.
Dorset Police said it had been told there were “no plans” for the festival to be held this year.
A spokeswoman for the force said: “The payment of our 2018 policing services invoice, totalling £141,176, to cover our policing of both Camp Bestival and Bestival is still outstanding and we’ve not received any full or part payment towards this.
“Some time ago, we were informed by the new event owners that there are no plans to run a Bestival 2019 event.
“We are working with colleagues at Purbeck District Council as well as other members of the Safety Advisory Group and any decisions around the policing and security of Camp Bestival 2019 have yet to be made.”
The festival’s organisers could not be reached for comment on Wednesday.
The news follows the death of the daughter of Holby City actor John Michie.
Louella Fletcher-Michie died after taking the hallucinogenic drug 2-CP at Bestival in September 2017, an hour before her 25th birthday.
Ceon Broughton, of Enfield, north London, was found guilty of being responsible for the death of Louella Fletcher-Michie after he “bumped up” her dose of a so-called party drug then filmed her as she suffered an extreme reaction.
Camp Bestival, the sister festival to Bestival, is going ahead this year at Lulworth Castle, Dorset, in July, with Nile Rodgers and Chic and Jess Glynne among confirmed performers.
