A number of event organisers have made announcements, but is Belsonic 2020 cancelled?

For music fans, few things beat festival season.

It’s a time when we can all wave goodbye to the nine to five and have fun with family and friends in the sun… or rain. Let’s face it, there’s always a bit of rain!

However, this year is set to be very different as more and more music festivals are being cancelled or postponed in response to the current pandemic. 

Just weeks ago, we went into lockdown and have been told to leave the home only for work if absolutely necessary and shopping for essentials as infrequently as possible. The aim is to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to unaffected households, thus saving lives and helping out health services. 

Event cancellations have been expected ever since, but not all have made the dreaded announcement yet. 

Has Belsonic?

Is Belsonic 2020 cancelled?

  • No, Belsonic 2020 is being monitored but has not been cancelled. However, some of the shows have been rescheduled for a later date. 

Listed below are the new dates for the rescheduled gigs (so far):

  • Lewis Capaldi: His show on Sun 21st June 2020 is now rescheduled to Sun 20th June 2021
  • Gerry Cinnamon: His show on Sat 20th June 2020 is now rescheduled to Sat 19th June 2021.
  • Picture This: Their show on Sun 28th June 2020 is now rescheduled to Sun 27th June 2021.
  • Dermot Kennedy: His show on Thurs 25th June 2020 is now rescheduled to Thurs 24th June 2021.

It’s a shame, but it’s great to see the shows are rescheduled rather than cancelled.
