Isle of Wight Festival 2020 Canceled Until Next Year

27th March 2020 | Category: Concerts

The events around the world are still getting canceled due to coronavirus pandemic. One of them was the Glastonbury Music Festival.

This week, another festival has been dropped and it’s Isle of Wight Festival.

The music event will not go ahead this year due to COVID-19. It was scheduled to take place between June 11-14th, 2020 at Seaclose Park in Newport.

Among its headliners were with Lionel Richie, Duran Duran, Snow Patrol, Lewis Capaldi, and more.

With Britain now in lockdown mode as coronavirus continues to spread the globe, this year’s event will no longer take place.

“This decision hasn’t been taken lightly and we have tried our hardest to make it work, but it was unavoidable given the current status,” reads a statement from organizers. 

“The safety of our audience, artists, crew and the Isle of Wight community is paramount and we appreciate your patience whilst we’ve been working through this unprecedented situation.”

Ticket holders don’t need to worry, they are entitled to refunds or the opportunity to rollover their tickets to next year.

“We are working closely with our ticketing partners at the moment and they will be in touch very soon to process your refund, or, if you prefer, you can retain your ticket and carry it over to next year.”

They will be contacted via email from them very soon and should only contact them if they have not been contacted after 5 days, as they are very busy at this time.

IOW promises it will be back stronger than ever next year.

“We hope everyone stays safe and we’ll see you in 2021.”

The Isle of Wight first hosted a major festival back in 1968. By the time the third edition rolled around, in 1970, more than 500,000 people came out to see the lineup, which included Jimi Hendrix and the Doors. The festival wasn’t active for decades until British promoter John Giddings revived it in 2002.
