My one and only little festival has fallen foul of Boris's 6 in a bed rule and been cancelled.
Bum, I'm more disappointed than I should be.

The government are finally acknowledging the challenge festivals face: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/nov/11/mps-to-hold-inquiry-into-ensuring-post-pandemic-survival-of-music-festivals?fbclid=IwAR0JjJiZPVCHMGQb-uuU7b3UFk9vwQijaHZK4T2afJl6AyxfK6_RBN1hQ7Q

Chippenham has already been cancelled - 2021 Official Web Site (chippfolk.co.uk)
The uncertainty must be a nightmare for organisers of summer festivals.  Normally, they would be busy selling ‘early bird’ tickets in January.

Bearded Theory has already decided to move from May until September, with a new line up. September could be a busy month for festivals if things go to plan.

Problem is that September nights can often be far too cold for camping.

Glastonbury 2021 has been cancelled.

Sad, but inevitable. Time to wait and see how many other festivals take their cue from this news...

Two reasons to hope for the Aug/Sept festivals at least: a) an extra couple of months, and b) they don't have anywhere near the same infrastructures to be created as Glastonbury does.  Having said all that, I reckon it will be 2022 before we see any proper festival activity....

The latest newsletter from the Sidmouth festival is reasonably upbeat.  They are encouraged by the success of the vaccine roll-out, but will make a final decision about this year’s festival in early April.  In the meantime, they are promoting online gigs by Chris Smither and Bruce Molsky.

Interesting piece in this weekend 's i newspaper about WOMADelaide. The capacity has been reduced to 25% (Now 6,500) and the attendees are seated and socially distanced on plastic picnic chairs.
Not a complete answer by any means, but a step in the right direction?
