Bestival cancelled following Louella Fletcher-Michie’s death

She tragically died at the festival in 2017

Bestival has reportedly been axed after Louella Fletcher-Michie lost her life from a drug overdose at the festival two years ago.

Police have confirmed that the festival, which has taken place in the summer for the last 15 years, has been binned after the incident.

The event takes place in Dorset and was supposed to be held at Lulworth Estate from 26-29 June.

Louella died after taking drug 2C-P while at the festival with boyfriend Ceon Broughton, who has now been found guilty of her manslaughter.

Authorities say the festival is yet to pay its six-figure policing bill after last year’s event.

According to OK! online, a spokesperson for Dorset police stated: “The payment of our 2018 policing services invoice, totalling £141,176 to cover our policing of both Camp Bestival and Bestival is still outstanding.

“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.”

They added: “We’ve not received any full or part payment towards this. We have been informed by the new event owners that there are no plans to run a Bestival 2019 event.”

Ent Daily has requested a comment from a Bestival representative.

Louella’s then-boyfriend, Ceon, was convicted of her manslaughter last week.

He was found guilty of supplying the Class A drug to Louella and was sentenced to eight-and-a-half years in prison.

He also filmed Louella while she was having an episode after she took the drug.

The 62-year-old star said: “I wake up every morning to face life starting again without Louella, our daughter, our sister, our friend, our family now broken.

“And for what? It makes no sense our beautiful Louella should still be with us on any measure of humanity.”
