Another 3 weeks have gone by and the miracle we needed has clearly not happened. Yesterday's Government announcement that from June 6th people can meet outside (whilst social distancing) is a step forward and things in the UK are improving slowly, thank goodness. Sadly, this progress is clearly not fast enough for us to put on a festival of several thousand people in August where we could keep you all safe.
The directors have therefore sadly taken the decision to postpone Weyfest this year and re-schedule it to 20-22nd August 2021. We genuinely believe this is the best decision taking everything into consideration.
We are aiming to put on the same show for you in 2021 and have now had conversations with all the headliners. The good news is that all of our headliners are available for 2021 and they are looking forward to entertaining you all, albeit a year later than expected. We will be in touch with all of the other artists in the next few days with a view to recreating the 2020 festival, lock, stock and barrel in 2021.
Many of you have bought tickets for Weyfest this year at early bird prices and we appreciate this faith in us. Earlybird prices for next year will be higher than this year, so those that hold onto their tickets will get a well deserved saving. Of course, all 2020 Weyfest tickets will be valid for the festival in 2021. We also understand that due to Covid many have understandably held off buying 2020 Earlybird tickets and so we will give an extended period to buy your tickets at this same price (* Tier 1 price below).
To hopefully make things clear, the 3 day ticket pricing for 2021 will be as follows:
Tier 1 2021* (Till end Jul 31st 2020) £115
Tier 2 2021 (Aug 1st-Dec 31st 2020) £125
Tier 3 2021 (Jan 1st-Mar 31st 2021) £135
Tier 4 2021 (After 1st Apr 2021) £145
NB All plus booking fees if bought online
Small festivals like Weyfest rely upon the goodwill of their festival goers and Weyfest is no exception. If you are able to hang onto your tickets until 2021 then it would really help us immensely. We fully expect to have the same show for you in 2021 and by using your 2020 ticket you will be saving yourself between £16-35 on a 3 day ticket right now and a whopping £36-55 on next years pricing.
Of course if you are sadly unable to attend in 2021 then please contact your original point of sale to discuss a refund before June 15th 2020. NB Those that have bought online will receive an email from Skiddle in the next few days to explain your options.
These are difficult times and it was with heavy hearts that we took this decision to postpone the festival for the first time ever. You Weyfesters are an amazing bunch and we fully intend to make 2021 an even better festival than 2020 as a reward for your loyalty.
Good times are coming soon and we look forward to having the world's biggest party with you in 2021 !!
