A number of organisers have made the dreaded announcement, but is NASS Festival cancelled this year?

In the wake of Boris Johnson’s recent announcement, lockdown restrictions have been relaxed somewhat. We’re now allowed to meet with one person outdoors from another household at a time, with many more people also returning to work.

However, social distancing remains crucial in combating the spread of the virus, so obviously, mass gatherings are still out of the question.

Over the last couple of months, we’ve seen this year’s additions of Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Download, Isle of Wight and more cancelled or postponed.

Is NASS Festival cancelled?

Yes, NASS Festival 2020 has been cancelled and will no longer take place on the previously confirmed date of Thursday, July 9th 2020.

Fortunately, they’ve already scheduled for the event to take place next year on  8 – 11 July 2021.

In a recent statement on the website, they addressed:

“We’re heartbroken to announce that NASS will no longer take place this Summer. We explored all options to run the show, but it is clear rescheduling to 2021 is our only option. The safety of our fans, the local community and everyone involved in NASS comes first. NASS will now take place on 8 – 11 July 2021.”

If you’ve already purchased your tickets then they’ll automatically be valid for next year’s event, so not to worry!

NASS Festival 2020 refunds

Of course, not all of you will want to allow your ticket to roll onto next year.

In that case, the recent update from festival organisers informs you to keep an eye on your emails, as information regarding refunds is incoming.

Be sure to check your spam, just in case!

They concluded the announcement on a note of gratitude, thanking those who make NASS so special:

“Thank you to everyone who has sent messages of support over the past few weeks. We’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from our NASS fam. We’d be nothing without you guys. We’ll see you next year. Until then, stay safe and look out for each other.”
