Looe Live! festival is postponed until 2021

Looe Live! festival is postponed until 2021

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 4:11pm 26th May 2020. (Updated at 4:15pm 26th May 2020)

Organisers of Looe Live! announce that the festival is postponed until 2021 - following the UK Government and Public Health England’s recommendations in response to Covid-19.

The three-day festival was due to go ahead on the 25th-27th of September 2020. The new date is provisionally set for September 17th-19th 2021, provided necessary permissions are granted.

Looe Live! is a one of a kind music festival. It’s more of a friendly gathering, with a sense of community, where music and arts fill the streets – multiple stages and pop-up performances take place in venues across the whole town.

“Although a very tough decision and one we didn’t take lightly, our team feel postponing until 2021 is what’s necessary to help keep everyone safe. We know, like us, many will be left disappointed and that the festival is a really important weekend for the town and the wider region. However, we’re very thankful to our guests, the residents of Looe and our crew for their understanding and support during this challenging time. For now, we hope everyone is taking care and we can’t wait to welcome you all back in 2021 – for what we hope will be our best year yet!”

             Noel Sheehan, from the Looe Live! festival committee

The festival prides itself in offering the chance to hear some stellar music, fill up on local food and drink, dance on the sea front and get stuck into a full programme of activities and workshops across the town.

Next year’s festival promises to deliver another stonking line-up – hopefully including legendary rock band Reef and popular groove machine Tankus The Henge, who were confirmed to play this year.

For those who’ve already purchased 2020 festival tickets, they can be rolled over and redeemed in 2021 or refunds are also available for those unable to make next year’s dates.

For 2020 ticket rollover or refund information, further details about how to buy tickets to next year’s festival or the 2021 line-up please visit LooeLive.co.uk or find Looe Live! on Facebook.
