The rescheduled 4-day event is due to rock Seaclose Park, Newport from 16th-19th September 2021. It was originally due to be held next weekend, but the pandemic put paid to that plan.
Festival organiser John Giddings has revealed to The Price is Wight that the event will go ahead – even if the government next week decide to delay lockdown lifting. He is confident that there will be no masks and no social distancing rules in place.
Speaking exclusively to the ticket seller, John said:
“People are still buying tickets and we are very, very close to being sold out. We will most definitely sell out in advance of the Festival. Please don’t moan at me that you have missed out when we put up those ‘sold out’ signs!
“Right now we should have been right in the middle of setting up the Festival site. I am thinking about going along to Seaclose Park over the weekend to get a sense of it all – just stand there in an empty park and take it all in.
“I know many people who have booked hotels and houses on the Island for what would have been the weekend of Festival and they are still coming over to enjoy themselves, which I think is great.
Around 50,000 revellers will lap up live music, DJs, theatre, cabaret, film, bars and so much more on an array of colourful stages across the enormous site. Headlining the bash are Liam Gallagher, Snow Patrol, David Guetta and Duran Duran with special guest Sir Tom Jones.
