Summer event series Forest Live has been cancelled for 2020.
The gigs – presented by Forestry England – were due to take place in June, with the likes of Jack Savoretti, Keane, Madness, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, and Rag‘n’Bone Man performing in woodland locations.
Their statement reads: “We are sorry to disappoint the Forest Live fans who were hoping to see bands in the nation’s forests this summer but we have cancelled Forest Live 2020 to keep everyone safe in line with recent government guidance on the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
“We really hope that everyone’s support to fight COVID-19 means the situation will have improved by the summer however, as well as our valued customers, we work with a large number of volunteers, artists and contractors, to make these concerts happen and have taken this decision in the interest of safety for everyone involved.
“Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to reschedule our concerts. Ticket holders will be contacted by their point of purchase and will be automatically refunded. We ask for your patience and understanding at this busy time.”
