I would have no confidence in sitting in a summer audience of thousands of people - and I'm pretty sure I've had it!

As for Butlins in December, no chance.


I think the only thing up for debate is whether there will be any next year.

There could be other issues in putting on festivals next year even if they are allowed to.  In the online news a couple of days there was an article about a company that supplied generators and other event infrastructure, being refused a loan, as they already had a large loan to buy equipment.

many many traders will have had to fold before next year.

i can't believe one of the events companies i work for still has over 50 gigs and festivals for which they are actively recruiting despite many of them already being cancelled by the organisers, the killers for example.

Very sad to hear that Enjoy Travel, the company which runs the excellent Costa Del Folk festivals among many other events, have been forced to cease trading.
The staff are such a wonderful bunch of people and I wish them all the best for the future.

Actually, that's wrong...they've postponed it until May.  I presume they're going to try and squeeze two in next year.  Hmmm.

New Forest Folk Festival

I’ve just had an email. They are hoping it will happen now on August BH weekend, but that depends on advice and the progress of the virus. If not, it’ll be July 5-11 next year.
Tickets can be rolled over. If it does take place in August, but you don’t feel safe about going, they are prepared to roll your tix over to 2021 or 2022.
See their webpage for more details.

As they said, because it is small and all the ‘stuff’ and the site is their own, they have a bit more flexibility with organisation.

Twinwood festival (August BH weekend) now postponed to next year.
Just the Butlins GBFF left. I wonder if it will happen, and if anybody will be brave enough to go.

All Butlins Music Weekends cancelled in September 2020 dates converted to family breaks where social-distancing can be maintained.

Going to be touch and go for the GBFF which is scheduled for the last weekend in November 2020.

Received refunds for BlueDot (not quick, but not the 90 days quoted) and Twinwood (less than two weeks).
