bluedot is postponed til next year, with all three headliners – Bjork, Metronomy, and Groove Armada – staying on.
The event will now take place from 22nd-25th July 2021 due to the ongoing impact of the coronavirus outbreak, with this year’s tickets still valid (although refund will also be available).
A statement from organisers explains: “Our teams have been working with partners and authorities to assess the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the festival. Although bluedot may still seem some time away, the virus and its associated effects are unlikely to ease for some months and it is important to us that any additional or unnecessary strain on medical services is avoided.
“This decision has been a necessary but difficult one to make as it affects not only our wonderful bluedot family of festival-goers and staff but also a large number of artists, performers, speakers, suppliers, traders and freelancers, many of whom have been hit hard during this period. Within our limited means, we will continue to do everything we can to support them and the wider sector during these difficult times.”
