I had not planned to go this year because of the (IMO) poor lineup, looks like I won't be going next year either.

DW

Maybe come back in a few years time if you fancy it.
If not there are plenty of other festivals that you might fancy.

If not thereís always YouTube where you can relive the past if thatís what you prefer.

FWIW Iím sure fairport 2021 will now sell out as will a lot of festivals who miss a year.

Why should people be made to feel guilty about not shelling out for something they wont enjoy? That's just being silly.

Surely a thread about the festival being cancelled should concern those who it has effected rather than those who were not interested in attending.

That is all

It did affect the member in question if you read his post.

Was there/will there be a 2020 Young Folk Award?

If so, will this year's winners miss out on their Cropredy slot in 2021 in favour of next year's winners? May be both could be accommodated somehow...

So the poster came on to moan he didnít want to go in 2020 and because the line up was the same he wouldnít be going in 2021 !!!

Surely the time to moan was when the line up was announced not when itís been cancelled.

The only way it has effected people who were not interested in going is that they are still not interested in going !!!

If people donít want to go then that is their prerogative but to moan about a festival they are not interested in attending is futile.

If heaven forbid the festival is cancelled in 2021 can those not interested spare us from posting that they wonít be going in 2022.

Thankyou

Itís a good job that I stuck to betting with you on whether this years festival would take place rather than entering a spelling contest.

Well I, for one, am happy that the same line-up has been retained and, if Iím honest, Iím slightly relieved that the decision to cancel has been made. Being one of 1.5m people who have been designated vulnerable and need to be kept shielded until at least mid-June due to my several fairly serious underlying long-term health conditions meant I was becoming a little worried about mixing with 20,000 or so people especially after having to put up with 12 weeks inside and not even being allowed to walk the dog! Sorry a bit selfish I know but....

Bridget,

August 2021 is a long time away.

Be careful to remember where you put the tickets!!!

Lol!! I have them in my sweaty palm  Grin one of the benefits of lockdown has been the organisation of my study so there is now An Official Place for tickets   Tiara Tiara Tiara
