Festival on the Field 2020 image


For very obvious reasons Festival on the Field 2020 has been postponed.

We will hold the Festival NEXT YEAR on SATURDAY JULY 3rd.

As has been made clear in previous announcements, all tickets will be valid for next year’s event and we hope very much that you will continue to support us by holding onto your tickets and saving the date for next year. However, if you are unable to attend, please email us and we will issue a full refund. This may take a bit of time so please bear with us.

We are living in ‘interesting’ times – let’s hope we can all enjoy a great Festival in 2021 when the times are a bit less interesting.

We wish you all good health and wellbeing and look forward to celebrating together next year.

Following on from our statement on Monday 16th March, we are aware that Glastonbury Festival has been postponed until next year. This decision was taken for many reasons, however, one important one is that Glastonbury has about a 4 month build time. They are also reliant on a lot of support from local emergency services.

Festival on the Field has a 24 hour build time and does not involve any local services. This means we can make a decision about postponing our event much nearer to the date.

We DO have a plan to postpone in place, but we feel it is still too early to make the call. Please be assured, we will keep you informed and up to date with any decisions.

Thank you all and we wish everyone well in the weeks ahead.

Festival on the Field 2020 – COVID-19

We would like to reassure everyone that we are fully aware of all the latest developments regarding the COVID-19 virus. We will be guided by government policy and guidelines, but at this stage it is too early to know if our event in July will be affected.

Should the Festival not be able to take place, we will POSTPONE it to another suitable date. We will be monitoring the situation and reviewing it on a daily basis and will notify everyone as soon as any decision is made.

All tickets sold will be valid for the postponed date. Should you be unable to attend on that date they will be refunded.

We remain positive that we will all be able to enjoy a fantastic post-virus event on July 4th this year, and if not, an equally great Festival at a future date!

Thank you for your patience and continued support.
