Waterboys have now been added for the Sunday night.
I was feeling a little underwhelmed by what had been announced so far, but this has made up for it.

Wickham say they are not postponing yet. They will await any government announcement.

yes i saw that email... seems a little strange- im sure they will have to do it anyway... Just holding onto the cash for as long as possible i suppose.. I mean do you think many want to go even then?

Their survival probably depends on it being cancelled for them (by the government) rather than cancelling it themselves...

They are doing away with the big tops, but still I don't see how they will be able to manage it. 2 metre grid on the ground.

I suspect we will hold our tickets over to the following year.

Looks like this is still running. Would it be a good replacement for my normal Cropredy weekend away?

It is a very different kind of festival to Cropredy. Smaller. Multiple stages. Less folk centric and possibly less of a community atmosphere. But I have always enjoyed it and it is a stellar line up this year though unfortunately I won't be attending.

The organisers have beeen quite bullish about it going ahead. I am surprised they are prepared to take the risk without insurance but perhaps they have some alternative contingency.

Thanks. When you say “smaller” is that just the attendance or is it the camping/ arena? Can’t imagine several stages on a smaller site?

That's pretty much what it is, capacity is roughly 7-8000 (not sure which, maybe fewer this year for distancing), and a number of stages around the site. Great atmosphere, though. Here's a site map from a couple of years ago to give you some idea :
