ORGANISERS of Saturday’s Electric Valley say the dance festival will not return next year due to low crowd numbers and not enough “community support” for the event. 

About 700 fans raved to the trumpet solos and electronic dance music tracks of headline artist Timmy Trumpet and other national and local DJ acts, including Holly J, Luke Montgomery and Nick Kennedy. 

However, organiser Joshua Hamdorf said this figure was just half the turnout of the event’s debut last year, despite tickets being cheaper this year. 

Mr Hamdorf said Saturday’s mild, cloudy weather wasn’t the only reason for the lower attendance.
