Fantastic festival! Great to see this!!! 🤘🏼IO EARTH would love to return !!!!
We are truly humbled by all your wonderful comments. Thank you all SO MUCH. We will be back with a fantastic festival next year and we can all celebrate together. What lovely people you are 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
I'm so sad it's not happening this year. its my favourite festival and a great way to end my festival season. A fantastic location, with an amazing range of musicians, we always camp for the 4 days and meet so many like minded people.This cancelation will only make next years festival even more special. roll on 2021🎸😎🍺
So Sorry, but not unexpected. I'm in the shielding group so it was always going to be touch and go for me anyway. So many great bands I'm going to miss but hopefully a monster line up next year. 🐻☹️🙏
Unfortunately it clashes with Green Man next year 🙁
So sorry it's not happening but it will save us the anxiety of whether to go or not. Lovely wonderful festival we have been to every one from the start. Would be so sad to see it fail altogether so of course we will hang on to our tickets . We bought ours on site last year. Hope we can sort out adding to the draw. Could you also include the low paid care workers in it. Many of whom had to work with no PPE for many weeks. Will look forward to seeing the lovely folk again next year.
I'll drink to that!
Silver lining for you organisers - most of the planning is done for next year already, you can have a rest! You're bound to need it after the last few weeks!
It is our favourite festival which we travel to from Norway every year. We will truly miss the weekend of bliss and long to be back ❣
I know it's a long shot but is there any chance of some acoustic performances from this years lineup pre-recorded then streamed live here? Then we can all have a pint of ale sat in the garden with our eyes shut and imagine it's still going ahead 😌
Hope you’re aiming for the same line-up next year!? We were so looking forward to it. So sad to have to cancel BUT I’d rather everyone stays safe in 2020 and we ALL make 2021 👍
A NEW DAY FESTIVAL 2020
Oh well… we tried, we really did.
We were hopeful, up until this weekend, that the tide might turn sufficiently to enable us to hold our lovely little festival again this year, complete with the relevant precautions, social distancing etc. etc.
However, looking at the recent scenes of beaches and city centres rammed with people, reports of the all-important “R” number rising above 1 again, gave us cause for concern.
Equally concerning is the fact that the vast majority of our audience, performers and, yes, the organisers are in the most vulnerable age group.
Now, after consultations with local residents and our venue hosts, expressing grave concerns and asking us to postpone this year, there is only one option.
And so it is with heavy hearts that we have to announce the postponement of A New Day until August 20-22 next year.
This comes as a devastating blow to us after so much hard work and preparation, and to many of you we are sure, even though it is not completely unexpected.
As with all the other struggling festivals that have been forced to cancel, our main (only) hope of surviving this disastrous state of affairs lies with you guys. It will help us immensely if you can roll over your tickets until next year. And with a grateful nod to the countless heroes that have helped us all to get through this so far, we promise that for EVERY ticket rolled over we will donate a ticket – that’s absolutely FREE – to NHS staff members. They deserve it, and we want to thank them.
We will also hold a draw of ticket holders, the winner to receive free tickets for the following year.
We will be emailing our database (check your spam!) over the next few days, and Skiddle will also be in contact with all online ticket buyers.
Of course, if you cannot hang onto your tickets, refunds will be available as soon as we can process them. Or, if you simply cannot make the dates next year but want to help us save the festival, how about a voucher for 2022?
If you require a refund please email email@example.com
Thanks for reading and for your support thus far. We hope to meet you all again NEXT year.
Dave, Ian, Frank & Angela, the A New Day Team. ... See MoreSee Less
See you Next year. ❤️
Sorry to hear this (somewhat expected) news. Will hope to see you next year. Much love to you all.
Stay safe everyone hope to see you all in 2021 😊xx
Obviously disappointed but hardly unexpected. This is the right decision. Will DEFINITELY be rolling over. Bring on 2021.
We are very sad but fully understand the position you have been put in and totally understand the decision. We are more than happy to help you guys out by rolling our tickets over to next year. Great touch about the tickets for NHS Members as well. A couple of my friends work at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton and I’m sure would love to come down. We keep telling them what a fab friendly festival it is. Good luck guys and see you next year Dave’n’Ali x
I'd been in 2 minds to even hope that this year's festival would take place. Even though it would be another 2 months on, not a lot might change as the UK didn't instigate lock down soon enough, & those with underlying health problems will be uneasy about taking any risk. The compromises & added stress for those with or without existing health conditions, who might put risk aside, wouldn't be conducive to the best atmosphere. I can't imagine not being within the throng down the front (for Focus 😉among many)! We'll all be so grateful & happy to attend next year, it'll be even more brilliant! Such a shame for all those with financial losses as a result this year 😥. I do hope Tangerine Fields will return. (Goes without saying - ticket roll over of course) All the best to all. 🤗
Stay safe and well everyone that is priority ! We are rolling ours and thank you for ll your hard word and efforts it wont be wasted xx all will be well x
Not unexpected, and sadly the right decision. It would be too big a risk.
A real shame but probably the only option, see you next year hopefully take care all!
😭 but inevitable, no way you can do safe distance at a festival, wouldn't be the same without the hugs while we rocked. See you next year.
That's a real shame, had everything crossed for this to go ahead, like a light at the end of a tunnel. See you next year xxx
Thank you so much for putting the lives of people as a higher priority than the obvious loss of revenue that this cancellation will bring. xx I will certainly attend the next one given the stance you have taken here. xxx
Just to let you know this is the same date that Weyfest have re booked theirs for also. My dad has tickets booked for both.
Sad but sadly inevitable news. Let’s make 2021 special!
Sad news, but know we will all be back bigger better and healthier next time.
Thanks for trying Dave, but I think we all knew it was going to be a long shot. Certainly don't want a refund and already looking forward to 2021 (& 22, 23....).
If next years dates are 20th to 22nd August then it's the weekend before Bank holiday which is a good thing,less chance of horrendous traffic both ways.Just trying to pick out the positives. Hope most of the bands will commit to next year as well
Can't argue with your decision...totally sensible ❤
Sad but understandable. See you all next year.
Tough times Dave. I’m sure most folks will roll their tickets over to 2021.
I love this festival, but it's the right decision....I'm rolling over 🎟:) x
Sorry to see that Dave.Come back stronger than ever in 2021.
So sad, well done Dave and team for trying so hard. See you next year!!
Sorry to hear, but fully understand. Will be there in 21!
Such a shame, but completely understandable under the circumstances. I’m sure we’ll be more than happy to roll over until next year, which I’m sure will be epic!
