As previously reported, Trenchard was jailed for 30 months this week for theft and fraud.

In response to the media attention surrounding the case, festival director Graham MacVoy has moved to ensure fans that the event will go ahead.

“I know that Alex very much regrets his actions and feels great remorse for the distress he has caused,” he said.

 “But the festival is about more than just one person. The team have been preparing for this year’s festival and Alex’s absence for a number of months. Standon Calling 2010 was a resounding success and we are building on that.

“Our Early Bird tickets for 2011 sold out in half the time they did last year. Excitement is building and we are about to unveil our theme and make our first line-up announcement.”

Standon Calling 2011 takes place from 11-14 August at a secret venue in Standon, UK.
