As reported in NME the 2021 Isle of Wight Festival has been pushed back to September after it was confirmed that England’s roadmap out of coronavirus lockdown will provisionally allow large-scale events to return from the end of June.
The Seaclose Park festival was set to take place from June 17-20, but it has now moved to September 16-19.
It has yet to be confirmed whether this year’s headliners, including Lionel Richie, Lewis Capaldi and Snow Patrol, will play at the rescheduled event, but organisers say they are “aiming to bring back as many of the artists as we can”.
A tactical move from festival organisers in the hope that, by September, the festival will be able to go ahead. Fingers crossed for them!
