Organisers of the festival added that anyone who had already bought a ticket would receive a full refund from their ticket agents.
A statement issued on behalf of promoter, Vince Power, said: "We've worked very hard to try to make it work but it's proved too much a of mountain to climb and despite fighting hard...based on poor ticket sales and the forecast selling rate substantial losses would be made.
"It is a surprise for us that after 8 weeks of heavy marketing and with such a great bill that we have to cancel, though we are convinced this does not reflect on the artists, it highlights the poor economic climate."
