Hi friends and supporters of the Big Weekend
For some months now we have been deliberating and debating the feasibility and sensibility in bringing international Artists from the US to the Big Weekend this Summer. Although as it stands the Covid situation here in the UK is looking increasingly positive and stable, there are still many external variables and variants which are much less so.
The BW committee met last week to make the final decision regarding international travel, in order to allow time for all concerned to make calendar adjustments if necessary.
Sadly, but arguably sensibly, the committee decided that the situation regarding international travel from the US is still too uncertain going forward, as it stands even the quarantine restrictions are totally un-affordable for us.
It is with regret that we hereby announce we will not be hosting Artists from the US this year.
Our invited US Artists have been notified and are very understanding of the situation we find ourselves in, all are of course invited, and agreeable to play at the Big Weekend 2022!
The good news is our festival is still going ahead in August! We are making a few changes and exciting new additions to the line up, to proudly present for you the very best UK based Artists and bands!
New line-up announcements very soon!
***Reminder***If you bought a ticket for the 2020 festival that was canceled (due to Covid) and you rolled your ticket over to the 2021 festival (i.e. you didn’t ask for a refund); then your ticket is still valid for the 2021 festival; you don’t need to buy another ticket.
