Big Weekend 2020 - Covid-19 cancellation

Hi friends and supporters of the Big Weekend Festival.

Firstly, thank you for your patience in awaiting our decision regarding Covid-19; and the Big Weekend.

We have tried our very best to stay positive and see the festival come to fruition this year. We were so excited about the amazing artists we had lined up for you all to enjoy; and heaven knows we could all do with a little joy, fabulous music, dancing, friendship and love in our lives at this time!

We had our final decision committee meeting on Tuesday and it is with great sadness and regret that we all decided in the present climate regarding the Corona Virus pandemic it would be too risky and difficult to navigate around all the issues concerning the Virus and a festival such as ours. Social distancing at an event in which couple dancing is a main activity being just one issue of many!
We are fully committed to the health and well being of our guests above all else.

With a heavy heart I can officially announce that the Big Weekend 2020 has been cancelled due to the Corona Virus pandemic.

However, on a more positive note we are fully committed to the festival returning in August 2021! (Dates for the diary 13th – 15th)

We have contacted all the Artists booked to perform this year and without exception all have shown solidarity and support and agreed to perform at the Big Weekend 2021!

We are delighted that we are able to present the same amazing line up next year! (Plus more to be announced)

For those of you who have already purchased tickets for 2020, we hope that you will be happy to hang on to these as they will roll over to next year, it would help us greatly if you were able to do this.
For those who may wish to request a re-fund, this can be arranged by contacting us via the website, our Facebook page or via Eventbrite directly and we will release further details in the next couple of weeks about the finer details.
At present, ticket prices will not increase until next year; so if anyone wants to get theirs booked for next year, please feel free.

We thank you most sincerely for your love and support through these uncertain times, we hope you stay well and have a great Summer; and we look forward to seeing you all on the dance floor at the Big Weekend 13th – 15th August 2021!

With love from all of us at The Big Weekend!
