Jack Up The Summer Festival 2020 cancelled due to coronavirus - full ticket information
A popular summer festival on the Isle of Wight has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Jack Up The Summer festival was due to be held between August 7 and 9 but today organisers announced the event would be postponed until 2021.
The family-friendly retro festival will now take place on August 6-8 2021. Tickets purchased for this year’s event will be rolled over to next year’s edition.
Soul diva Heather Small and iconic 80s electro-pop band Heaven 17 were scheduled to grace the stage at North Fairlee Farm. Both acts are among those already confirmed for the 2021 festival.
In a statement organisers said: ‘We would like to say a huge thank you all for your patience and understanding as we have been navigating our way through this difficult and challenging scenario.
‘To ensure your safety and overall enjoyment of our event, it is with the heaviest of hearts we have no option but to postpone this year’s planned Jack Up The Summer festival. However the show will go on – when it is safe to do so.
‘Jack Up is a true labour of love for our small team, and after the many months of work which have already gone into planning the event, being unable to share it with you this year is utterly heartbreaking.
‘We know you will be just as disappointed as we are but with everything that’s going on in the world right now, we hope you can appreciate that this is the right thing to do.’
All tickets, including partially paid instalment tickets, for the 2020 event will roll straight over to the revised dates and will be locked in at 2020 prices.
You do not need to do anything except turn up to the 2021 event with your tickets.
If you are unable to make the dates you can get in touch with the festival via the website within 30 days to get a refund.
