Postponement

It is with great sadness that we are getting in touch today to announce that we will be postponing Love Hangover Festival until summer 2021. The past week has been tense for us, our original plans had been approved last month, but recent developments in the Covid-19 situation mean that our event can no longer go ahead. 

On Friday 31st July, the government announced the postponement of certain restrictions and enforced more lockdowns across the country. Despite working hard this weekend to try and make the festival work within new measures, the extra stipulations in the organising and infrastructure of the event means it has become impossible to carry on. 

When we announced the festival, we stated your well being and safety was paramount and until Friday afternoon we were truly on track to host an amazing and safe event for you all. However, we also needed the easing of restrictions to continue in a positive manner and Friday was a monumental step backwards. The extra planning and expense we went to to make this event happen has been quite exhausting, but we wanted to get the event on safely so that we could all have a wonderful end to a tough summer. 

Even if we were to continue with this year’s event, the restrictions now in place would make this a shadow of what we were planning. More constraints were placed on us, including limited capacities on each stage, meaning that people would have missed out on acts they were there to see. We are also very wary that the event could have been closed down with no notice, as restrictions could get a lot worse at any moment. 

We’re devastated to have had to make this call. It’s well documented how hard the festival and event industry has been affected this year and we feel for all the staff and infrastructure companies we have involved with Love Hangover. Our efforts now will all be aimed at making Love Hangover 2021 the best event we possibly can, with plans from this moment to be Covid friendly, hoping that in time normality resumes safely. 

Tickets 

All tickets will of course be valid for 2021 and we can announce that the dates for 2021 will be May 14th – 16th. All acts booked to play at Love Hangover this year, including Norman Jay, Huey Morgan and The Brand New Heavies will now perform at next year’s festival. We can also confirm that we have added Craig Charles to the line-up. If you can roll your tickets over for next year, it will give us the best opportunity to survive this tough situation and come back stronger. If you do want to retain your tickets for 2021, you can contact Skiddle from next Monday, August 10th who will update your ticket.  For those that need a refund, they will be available within 28 days of this notice. 

We’d just like to once again say thank you for all your support and understanding throughout this situation, it’s been the hardest summer we could have imagined but until Friday we always thought it was going to have an incredible ending. This one really hurts, but we know that when we get together next year for a safe disco dance, it will be all the more magical. 

Stay safe, stay strong, and we will see you at Love Hangover in 2021.

Thanks from the Love Hangover Team
