The organiser of The Big Chill festival says he hopes it will return but possibly in a different format.
In January it was announced that the August event would not happen this year because of the Olympics affecting "artist availability".
Boss Melvin Benn says he is considering relaunching the Herefordshire event in 2013 with a different look.
"I'm sure something will return that will have a completely fresh take on what a festival should be," he said.
Last year The Big Chill was headlined by The Chemical Brothers, Kanye West and Rodrigo y Gabriela.
It also featured performances from Jessie J, Calvin Harris and Katy B.
Melvin Benn, managing director of Festival Republic, said: "The Big Chill [in 2012] was a clash with the Olympics but more importantly with the Big Chill it was me not being absolutely certain where I wanted to take the festival and what I was doing with the festival.
"I'm actually going down there next week to the very same site to have a look.
"I'll go with a couple of people that I hope will be working with me on - not the Big Chill, it won't necessarily be the Big Chill - but a replacement or something to be born out of that."
The festival, which was first held in 1994, takes place in the grounds of Eastnor Castle, Ledbury in Herefordshire.

by using the Hanley and Welland Oil Club
Castlemorton Parish Council has now arranged for householders in Castlemorton Parish to be able to join the Hanley and Welland Oil Club. The scheme has been running for over two years and currently has 230 members.
HOW THE SCHEME WORKS
You join the scheme by phoning Dennis Wade. Tel: 310410.
He will register your name, address, postcode and telephone number with the oil supplier (currently Hingley Callow).
When you want to order oil, you phone Hingley Callow (01299 828800) after 10.00am on a Monday and before 4.00pm on a Tuesday and they will give you the current price. You can check with other suppliers that this is the best price, and if you place your order before 4.00pm on the Tuesday, they will deliver on Wednesday.
Is there a minimum order? – Yes, 500 litres, but there is no surcharge for ordering under 1000 litres. The price per litre is the same.
Is there a membership fee? – No, it is free.
Do I have to buy from Hingley Callow? – No, if you happen to be offered a better price elsewhere, you are at liberty to order from somebody else.
How do I pay? – You will be invoiced by Hingley Callow and you must pay within 7 days. No charge for cheques and Debit Cards. Credit Card payments attract a surcharge.
The supplier offers a monthly budget scheme and once you are a Member they will give you details if you ask for them.
HOW TO JOIN THE CLUB
Telephone Dennis Wade on 310410.

Herefordshire Council looking at committing £6m on broadband Monday 23 January 2012 19:09:48 by Andrew Ferguson
Herefordshire Council's cabinet is cutting the discussions over allocating some £6 million from its own budget close to the mark, with a full council meeting to discuss the issue on 3rd February when the plan has to be submitted to the BDUK before the end of February 2012.
Herefordshire and Gloucestershire County Councils were amongst the first wave of pilots for BDUK funding and back in January 2011 but as yet we are still not aware of any actual awarding of contracts or trials under that scheme. The pilots seem to simply be areas that are slightly further ahead on the procurement process.
Herefordshire was allocated £6,350,000 by the BDUK in August 2011, but this will only be released on approval of the plan. The number of properties with poor or no broadband was estimated at 84,128, which is a massive 99.8% of the areas of the county eligible for State support. Gloucestershire has an allocation of £8,070,000 to cover 150,405 properties, which is 54.3% of the county. 19:09:48 by Andrew Ferguson

Home Energy Talk
Wednesday 11th January, 7:30pm at Harcourt Room, Mount Pleasant Hotel, Belle
Vue Terrace, Malvern, WR14 4PZ
Stay warm, reduce your bills and your carbon footprint. Talk and
demonstration of thermal imaging and other ways of measuring energy
efficiency. Also learn about our insulation project grant application, which
if successful will need to go ahead before March. There will be a chance to
register for the proposed solid wall insulation scheme.
This is being run by Transition Malvern Hills and one of the speakers is Brian Harper who some of you will have met at the coffee morning. He is much involved in the Malvern gas lamp project and also the thermal imaging work which is just being started in the Parish. He is a great enthusiast and talker so I think you may find the talk both interesting and informative.
