Music festival goers in the UK are used to braving mud, rain and sleepless nights for their music idols, but this year however, foot and mouth is proving a more damaging threat, with doubts surrounding whether these events will be staged. One of the largest blues music gatherings in Europe, The Bishopstock Blues Festival was due to take place in Devon on 26-28 May with the likes of Ray Charles and Buddy Guy playing. This has already been postponed until the end of August, as organisers fear the role it may play in spreading the highly contagious virus further.
