Boston Beat "cancelled"
claim is repeated

Whilst there is still no official announcement concerning cancellation of  the Boston Beat Concert scheduled for Central Park this coming Saturday because of “the weather” – one of the bands that was booked is repeating the claim on its Facebook page.
At around 7am today Audio Tap posted the message “Just a reminder that the Boston Beat festival on the 21st has been cancelled by Boston Borough Council, and the BID. Enough said!”
Since yesterday’s blog we hear that some sort of “pitch inspection” was carried out in the park on Friday - which involved Boston Borough Council.
Ironically, although this presumably informed a decision to cancel next week's event, later today Central Park will host Churches Together in Boston's annual afternoon picnic/party in the park at 3-30pm and event which includes live music. And guess what - there appear to be no concerns about "weather/pitch conditions" whatsoever - or should that be "whatsoweather?"
Tomorrow, we publish comments by former BID board member Darron Abbott, who was the first – and only person – to raise concerns about the way the organisation and booking of the event have been handled.
Then we’re taking the break that we mentioned in Friday’s blog – although you can still reach us via e-mail.
