Student festival is moved to Kent
Festival-goers
Beach Break Live takes place during the week to attract students

Thousands of people going to a student music festival in Cornwall, featuring Dizzee Rascall and Noisettes, are going to have to travel to Kent instead.

Beach Break Live couldn't get the right planning permission and councillors in St Agnes wouldn't allow it to go ahead.

It'll now take place at Port Lympne Mansion, near Hythe, in Kent.

People travelling by car will get £15 compensation and anyone who has a genuine reason for not being able to get to Kent will get a full refund.

Milly in Cornwall hasn't got the money to get to Kent: "If they'd changed it weeks and weeks ago we could have got train tickets quite cheaply.

"Now it'll probably cost about £70, £80, a train ticket to get up to Kent and I just can't afford that."

The festival started after the organisers appeared on BBC programme, Dragons' Den.

The bill also features The Zutons, Friendly Fires and Ladyhawke with tickets, priced at £95, sold out.

The festival takes place between 16-19 June and is held during the week to attract more students.
