I expect most of the line up will be almost exclusively UK based artists. Looking at other festivals very few of bands (at the higher end of the line ups) appear from overseas. Makes sense I suppose, bands from other countries could end up on the 'red' list overnight and leave a last minute gap in the bill, and from the bands perspective they could still be looking at a 10 day quarantine when they get to the UK and maybe the same when they leave.

Cynical move to shift the remaining 10% of tickets before postponing by a year once the ticket money is in the bank to accrue interest? With others cancelling there’ll be people looking for replacement festivals that look like they’ll still be going ahead.

Do you really think that? 10% ticket sales is less than 2000 and I imagine there will be more than that getting refunds if they cancel. So they won't gain any potential interest. Even if everyone kept their tickets would it really be that worth it?

I think we have to all try to assume it will go ahead and in this thread at least, stick to speculating who's on the line up. It sounds like there's going to be a few from last year that's not showing up. I'm not a great detective but would be interested in hearing what acts people think will be there from the line up last year.

Not to mention the fact that ticket funds are held until the festival goes ahead anyway and I doubt the organisers would see any interest earnt during the suggested delay. No benefit at all to shifting those tickets then not going ahead

Yeah it wouldn't make any sense to me. If it does get cancelled I imagine it'll be a decision out of their control. 

Anyway, I think the Levellers are nailed on. 😉
