Nottinghamshire’s biggest music festival has been postponed until next year because of COVID-19.
Artists including Supergrass, Rick Astley and the Vamps had been due to play at Splendour Festival in Wollaton Park on Saturday 18th July.
Organisers DHP Family say “throughout these difficult months, we’ve been cautiously optimistic about Splendour Festival going ahead as planned. However, it is now clear that we cannot go ahead with Splendour Festival 2020, and so have made the heart-breaking decision to postpone this year’s event for the first time in our 12 year history”.
Last year, the festival attracted 25,000 music lovers after tickets sold out in record time. This year’s festival was set to feature 40 acts across five stages. Manic Street Preachers and the Specials headlined last year’s event.
If you already have a ticket for this year, it will now be valid for next year’s festival on Saturday 24th July 2021. Organisers say ticket providers will contact people who have tickets soon with more details. By holding on to your ticket, they say you are supporting the festival and the musicians who play at it.
“We’ll be counting down the days and are already looking forward to having a huge party with you”, say organisers. “Splendour wouldn’t be what it is without you all and we’re so grateful for the positivity and fun you bring every year!”
