Really sad one of our small local festivals Godney Gathering was due to go ahead on the 17th and 18th july they are devasted they have worked so hard to make it a two day mini festival tht stated off as as evening in a farmers shed! Really feel for them! 

Yeah, great little festival.

I went to what I thought was the first one when Reed headlined with Toploader supporting about 20 years ago.

Wasn’t in a shed though so couldn’t have been the first.

I think before it became Godney Gathering one of the carnival clubs or young farmers club had the wurzels play!! They then seemed to do something every year!! Ive presumed it developed into the festival!!! But cud have got the two confused!!!

Or that these events are all 'High Society' events, generating loadsamoney for gambling organisations and the like as well, then they surely must go ahead huh... Some are run by individuals with not inconsiderable influence in the Govt as well.

"Gabriel lamented the fact that sporting events can go ahead while music fans faced repeat setbacks. “If we’re doing these test events and we’re doing the Euros or Ascot, let’s give the festival sector a chance too. Maybe it’s a different sector of the population, but they deserve a go at this as well.”

Godney gathering would be celebrating their 10th anniversary this year.

Mike says he has all the acts ready to go in 2022 plus a new booking system for the campsite next door to the festival site.

Looks as if the government could be about to launch some form of insurance 

"They basically have to underwrite our insurance and the DCMS are telling us they are really close to getting the Treasury to sign off."

definitely sounds promising!

Just saw that! I guess that's not good news for london festivals this summer agggh

Potentially not, but surely it's easier to control a ticketed event with testing instead of a carnival anyone can turn up to watch?

Yeah that's true. i guess anywhere with an arena you can require proof of a negative test, whereas carnival they can't really control who attends. Fingers crossed. All the uncertainty plus the crap weather we're now having is really testing me!
