BARE in the Woods was due to take place at Garryhinch Woods near Portarlington  on the Laois Offaly border from June 9-11. Headlined by Irish - American rappers House of Pain, a host of international acts had been lined up. However it was called off last week after the organisers said the would not be able to comply with the licence granted by Offaly County Council.

Early bird tickets went on sale late last year at €100 for a three-day camping ticket, before rising to €150 thereafter. Day tickets also be on sale for Saturday and Sunday at an early bird price of €40. Tickets sales were described by the organisers as 'healthy'. 

The Leinster Express understands it was hoped to attract a crowd of 10,000 people. It is understood 127 conditions were placed on the licence. Concerns had been raised with the organisers in advance about security, traffic, sanitation and other issues.
