Received refunds for BlueDot (not quick, but not the 90 days quoted) and Twinwood (less than two weeks).
New Forest / Eventbrite refunded my tickets within 24 hours, super efficient, would have liked to go next year but thats the one weekend in the year we can't make. gutted...

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.


On Facebook that music weekends to be cancelled to the end of October 2020, slightly more touch and go for GBFF.

I am expecting / hoping that GBFF be cancelled. If it is not, who would dare go? It is hard to envisage any social distancing being achieved.

I'm pretty sure neither Wendy nor I would consider going to GBFF this year.

We would feel OK in the Sky Bar but not in the main arenas. So would it be worth it? Depends how desperate we would be for music, and if the bands would turn up.

That only works for bands on that stage. Since they get spread over both stages, it could be very difficult.

That's why I queried if it would be worth it (for me). They would, of course, have to open both stages, to make it worthwhile for them.

The re-arranged Bearded Theory has not yet canceled, a final decision will be made at the end of this month, but they say it is highly unlikely it will go ahead. They are waiting to officially cancel because they would like to be able to announce at the same time whether next years can go ahead, and on what dates.

Austin City Limits Festival set for two weekends in October was officially cancelled today. No effect on me, personally, since I'm generally unfamiliar with the acts they've been booking lately. Our last visit to the ACL Fest featured Sir Paul a few years back. Since then, it's been Guns 'N Roses and people I've barely heard of, such as the WeekND and Billie Eilish (I'm not going to bother verifying the spelling).

I had no idea this festival was even still on the calendar. Austin cancelled SXSW, our other huge annual event, back in March. Since then we've made no progress containing the spread of COVID-19 in this state. Mrs. J From A and I are doing our part, but it seems a lot of folks haven't been. No festivals for the rest of this year, and probably no spectator sports.

We saw some scenes from Austin on our tv news during the week, similar to here lately people deciding to group together too close, some wear masks, others don't  Sad  There looked to be some angry anti mask wearers John? Maybe the future of festivals will become like transport travel, masks will have to be worn, although it is said the outdoors is a safer environment for the virus not to spread. Beer drinking and eating food at festivals may prove to be rather difficult.  Wink

I read about all the bad behavior, but I'm not really witnessing it in my pleasant suburban neighborhood. I'm working at home and not venturing downtown, let alone to any clubs or bars.

The Larmer Tree Festival have cancelled 2021 too.  Still hoping to return in 2022.  It will be interesting to see if this is something repeated by others...
