The Big Feastival cancels 2020 music and food festival

The Big Feastival, Alex James’ music and food festival in the Cotswolds, has been cancelled in 2020 due to the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Organisers of The Big Feastival on Alex James’ farm in the Cotswolds have confirmed that the 2020 music and food festival will be cancelled.

Due to be held from Friday 28 August until Sunday 30 August 2020, a statement was released on Wednesday 27 May 2020 saying: ‘After a lot of hard work, sweat and today a few tears, it is with a heavy heart that we have to confirm the cancellation of The Big Feastival 2020.

‘The festival has always been about uniting friends and family in a fun, safe and secure environment, to celebrate the final days of the summer. However, for the reasons you already know, we just can’t see a way to do that this year without sacrificing the very thing that makes The Big Feastival so special.’

Organisers revealed that The Big Feastival 2021 will return from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 August 2021 and that Nile Rogers & CHIC, Rag‘n’Bone Man and Sigala have all confirmed they will be performing at the summer festival in 2021.

All ticketholders will be contacted in due course with the option to transfer tickets to 2021 or request a refund.
