Bloodstock Confirm Postponement Of 2020 Edition

Bloodstock Confirm Postponement Of 2020 Edition.

In these unprecedented times and following the recent cancellation of Download, UK Death Fest & other summer festivals, BLOODSTOCK HQ announced the inevitable today.

In a statement issued this morning the festival organisers stated:

Following the ongoing government guidance on mass gatherings and social distancing, we are extremely disappointed to announce that this year’s BLOODSTOCK will no longer be going ahead. We respect the government’s mandate and recognise it is made with the best intentions, in order to protect the health & safety of not only our audience, but our staff, crew, musicians, and other contractors who work on site at BLOODSTOCK. Safety remains of paramount importance to us.

We know you have been concerned about what the developing Covid-19 situation would mean for BLOODSTOCK and will be as disappointed as we are at this tough decision, but we hope you can appreciate it is the right choice to make at this time. We had been working tirelessly to ensure we could still offer the top quality BLOODSTOCK experience you trust us to provide, year on year - and this year more than ever, when we invited you to celebrate 20 Years of BLOODSTOCK with us. We do not - and never will - take this trust in us for granted.

But all hope is not lost, in with this sad yet inevitable news was a glimmer of hope and good news for 2021.

The 2021 edition of the festival has now been extended to five days, starting on the Wednesday and running through to its traditional close on the Sunday. The dates for 2021 are August 11th to 15th. For those fans who have tickets for 2020, tickets will roll over to the five day festival next year at no extra cost.

For fan's not wanting to roll over and preferring a refund, you will need to contact your point of sale. All official Bloodstock ticket sellers will be offering a refund on the face value of tickets within 28 days.
