Ironfest 2020 will not be going ahead.
Festival director MacGregor Ross made the announcement on March 16 .
"We, the organisers, are devastated, we will do the right thing by the ticket holders and stallholders who have already paid which is a major hit on the festival's financial viability..." he said.
