This is Tomorrow has announced new dates for 2021.
The event will now take place from 28th-30th May next year, retaining much of the line-up from this year’s cancelled event – including headliners Sam Fender, Gerry Cinnamon and Royal Blood.
Organiser Steve Davis says: “Once again, we find ourselves in the firing line of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the best thing to do for all concerned is to move to a date that we are confident the event can go ahead as planned.
“We will use the extra time we have to make further additions to the line-up and experiences to the event.
“We were in the middle of adding a dance arena and “glamping” to the event as well as other additions to the line-up before the pandemic struck. Over the coming months, we will develop these ideas further and bring them to life ready for 2021.
“The agents, artists and suppliers once again have been first-class in supporting us and with our combined determination for this festival to go ahead, we will bring a truly memorable event to Newcastle next May bank holiday.
“We will also work with local authorities to make sure whatever social distancing measures need to be in place are perfectly implemented to make the festival a safe space to come and enjoy this amazing line-up. This is Tomorrow acknowledges the great help and assistance of The Freemen of Newcastle to make the new dates happen and the continued support of Urban Green, who operate the city’s parks.”
