Liverpool’s newest music festival Hope & Glory has been cancelled.
There was chaos yesterday as thousands of fans were made to wait hours when St. Georges Quarter became overcrowded.
Police were called in to help after long waits and poor access to toilets and food and drink facilities.
It is the first time the festival has been held in Liverpool with artists including James, The Fratellis, Razorlight and Charlotte Church on the bill.
Charlotte Church had to ask the people of the city to find her a venue after she was axed from the line-up last night due to the delays.
Headliners James did manage to get on stage but lead singer Tim Booth tweeted afterwards, “Sorry everyone was messed around so badly. Hope you managed to find some pleasure amongst the chaos.”

Festival goers weren’t impressed.
Hope & Glory Festival Liverpool put out a message on its Facebook page criticising its production manager and supplying his email details for complaints to be directed to.
A move which was widely criticised by frustrated concert-goers who branded the message unprofessional.
Artists who were due to play there today have been apologising on social media.
