Standon Calling has announced that this year’s event, to be held in July, has been postponed due to coronavirus.

The music festival was due to celebrate its 15th anniversary with a long weekend of live music and family entertainment, which will now take place between 22 to 25 July, 2021.

In a statement, Standon Calling said: “We are heartbroken to announce that due to the impact of Covid-19, the 15th anniversary of Standon Calling will no longer be taking place in 2020. As communicated in April, we have been exploring multiple options, however it has become clear that hosting the festival this year will not be possible.”


They continued: “We are incredibly sad that this will be the first year since we started out that the festival will not go ahead, but this is the right decision for all of us – our audience, our staff, our local community, our artists and the emergency services.

“I can promise you that we are already relishing the challenge to deliver The Party of All Time [in 2021] and then some… after all of this is behind us we are going to need it!”

Ticket holders for 2020 won’t have to do anything in advance of 2021’s festival, with tickets due to be rolled over for next year’s event. Ticket holders will also be entered into a prize draw to win one of 20 Adult Weekend Festival tickets for life, or one of 50 £50 bar tabs for the 2021 event.

If ticket holders wish to have their ticket refunded, they must visit the official Standon Calling website.

This year’s event was due to be headlined by Hot Chip and Primal Scream, while acts including Craig David, Sister Sledge, Ella Eyre, Everything Everything, Kojey Radical and Sophie Ellis-Bextor were also scheduled to appear.

It is currently unknown if any will be on the bill for 2021.

Standon Calling joins a number of music festivals and live events which have been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

It was announced today (7 May) that Notting Hill Carnival would not take place this summer, for the first time in 54 years.
