This year’s Splendour festival in Nottingham has been cancelled.
Organisers DHP Family announced the news today.
The festival had been set to take place in Nottingham’s Wollaton Park on Saturday, July 24
in a statement they said: “Following the announcement that lockdown easing is being delayed, we’ve now made the difficult decision to postpone Splendour Festival. As much as we were looking forward to a day of fantastic music with you all, the four-week delay has meant we just won’t be able to stage this year’s event.
“We’re devastated that we’re having to postpone for a second year running. We know this will be disappointing to everyone who had plans to attend, but also for all the artists, contractors and staff who count on Splendour for work. We can only say how sorry we are that we couldn’t make it work for this year.
“The good news is we’ll be back for 2022, and plans are already underway! We’re currently talking to all the acts from this year’s line-up to check their availability for next year, and we’ll have the line-up with you as soon as we can.”
They added: “If you already have a ticket for this year’s event we’d urge you to hold on to it, it will be valid for 2022’s festival. This helps to support Splendour and all the fantastic musicians who play at it.
