We hope that you are all safe and well at this uncertain time. We can now confirm festival postponement til 10-13 September 2020. Tickets are ON SALE for this event.
We have our venue, license, core crew and have secured many of our headliners. We’ll be announcing those over the next few days, but expect a bill as close as possible to our intended May line-up.
