This will come as no great suprise, but we have made the decision to postpone Infest 2020.
We had hoped that being at the end of August, which was when some countries were considering allowing certain events to go ahead, we may have been able to proceed. However the continuing uncertainty over the Covid-19 situation in the UK and abroad, as well as the changing restrictions that may or not be in place by August, have meant we can’t guarantee the safety of everyone involved and we don’t want to risk anyone’s health.
Our venue this week decided that it is highly unlikely they will be hosting any large events until December, which obviously affects Infest’s August date. In addition, the possibility of anyone travelling into the UK having to self-quarantine for 14 days effectively makes the show impossible for any overseas artists.
We have been considering alternative plans for some time now and will be moving full steam ahead with an online event, to be scheduled some time on the Infest weekend (28-30 Aug 2020). News will be posted and emailed as soon as details are confirmed.
As already announced, the plan is to move as much of the 2020 line up as possible to the new dates 27-29 August 2021.
Tickets and halls booked for this year will still be valid for 2021, however if you need to claim a refund on the face value of your tickets, please contact Gigantic directly. Ticket holders will be contacted by Gigantic on Monday with further information. The Gigantic Terms & Conditions are here.
In the meantime, stay safe and hopefully see you all online in August!
