Music Venue Trust are fighting hard to help venues at risk. Please share and help if you can πŸ™IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Thanks to our first major donation to the national Grassroots Music Venue Crisis Fund, we are today able to launch the GMV Crisis Service which is now live at our website.

This service aims to prevent the permanent closure of 555 grassroots music venues who are currently at imminent very high risk.

The Crisis Service is supported by an army of regional and national coordinators who will work directly one-on-one with each venue to eliminate the most significant threat it faces. Our Crisis Team will guide the whole sector through this storm until the date on which it is able to reopen.

You can read about the Crisis Service at our website:

To prevent the permanent closure of hundreds of grassroots music venues right across the UK, we still need more major donors from the music industry to step forward and support this work. Major donations can be arranged by contacting Beverley Whitrick at

We know that a lot of people are facing a very difficult time financially at the moment, and we don't want to add to those pressures. If your job is secure, if you and your family are well, and you feel able to make a small donation to support the crisis service, you can donate here:

You're making the right decision, tough as it is. See you next year!

We understand this. Please stay safe. You will stand up after all this even stronger. 2021 we will be there.

It's the right decision, Summer looks decidedly bleaker this year...x

Obviously upset. Love this event - but was the right decision. You ticketing agency is denying refunds - by the way. They say can only transfer it to next year. Happy to forward the correspondence to you if you like. Not cool.

So sorry to hear, was looking forward to it. Much love to TGE’s crew from us in Canada πŸ™β€οΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

So sad. Not a surprise though. But still. We were so much looking forward to play at The Great Escape Festival this year for the very first time!

This needed to be done, sorry it’s disappointed so many fans,artists,promoters,venues & TGE crew. But Next Year your’ll smash it πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ§‘ ( keeping the ticket )

Glad because I wanted a Hayley Williams ticket! And missed out

Obviously it is the only course of action but it is still incredibly sad. I love The Great Escape Festival I love seeing my hometown come alive with bands, beer and banter. I love catching up with old fiends and meeting new. I love imparting a bit of local knowledge. I love having mates come and stay for few days and cooking them a fry up in the morning. The music, late nights, brunches, get togethers, random moments, soirées, and sore heads are going to be very much missed. I look forward to having a cracking #TGE2021 and celebrating the 15th edition in style. Really sorry for all of the production and organisational teams at MAMA festivals.

I keep my ticket for 2021, obviously!!! Thanks for everything.

Really sad but its the right thing to do πŸ™

Sad times but completely respect your decision !! See you in 2021 & stay well πŸ˜˜πŸ‘xx

Not surprised but after attending this festival last year for the first time, my wife and I were so looking forward to this year. A brilliant well organised event. Stay safe.

So sad but the best festival in the UK will be back next year , stronger than ever !

Loved the festival in 2019. Will any more artists be announced for this soon?

Can’t even purchase tickets, the site just “times out” for no reason. And they’re talking about banning all events next week 🀷‍♂️
