Organisers of Britain's popular The Big Chill festival have "no plans" to stage the event in 2013.

The annual music bash was cancelled last year (12) after bosses struggled to pull in performers due to a scheduling clash with London's 2012 Summer Olympics.

Fans had expected it to return this summer (13), but chiefs at the Festival Republic, the company behind the event, admit there are "currently no plans for The Big Chill to return in 2013".

The Big Chill launched in the grounds of Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire, England in 1994 and has previously attracted stars including Kanye West, Massive Attack and Lily Allen as headliners.
