A brand-new one-day music festival planned for Lydiard Park has been postponed until 2021.

Live at Lydiard was due to make its debut in Swindon this August with acts such as Sean Kingston and Roman Kemp with two headliners still to be announced.

But it has now been moved to August 21, 2021, due to health and safety concerns caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Organiser Jack Summers said: “It is with great sadness and disappointment that we announce the postponement of Live at Lydiard 2020. We had poured our hearts into the festival’s debut year, which had already sold over 20 per cent of the allocated tickets before our first headliner announcement.

“We have been carefully monitoring the Covid-19 situation since the beginning and made an early call internally that we would not be able to deliver our UK festival programme for summer 2020.

“We are now in a position to be able to formally announce Live at Lydiard 2021’s postponement as well as the confirmed date for Live at Lydiard 2021.”

All tickets will be valid for the rearranged date but if a refund is required you can email tickets@liveatlydiard.co.uk.

Mr Summers added: “Tickets purchased for 2020 can be carried across to 2021 for no additional charge.

“We are gifting a £10 drinks voucher per person for any one that would like to carry across their ticket to Live at Lydiard 2021.

“All VIP upgrades for the 2021 event will still be valid. For anyone that does not wish to carry their ticket over, please email and our customer support team will assist you with your refund.

“We thank the people of Swindon for their ongoing support and understanding during this tough time and look forward to delivering a fantastic debut Live at Lydiard in 2021.”

Despite the postponement, Jack is still hopeful to announce the two main headliners for next year’s event in the coming weeks.
