It is with great sadness we have to announce that it has become necessary to postpone Twinwood Festival for one whole year, to August 2021. It has become clear to us that it will be logistically impossible to prepare for and stage Twinwood Festival 2020 during this coronavirus pandemic.
The health and safety of all festival-goers, artists, crew, traders, stewards, contractors, and all others involved, is the most important thing for us to protect right now.
The new dates for the forthcoming Twinwood Festival will be: Friday 27th to Monday 30th August 2021, with campers allowed to arrive on earlier days, depending on their camping package.
We intend to keep the 2021 line-up the same as we advertised already for 2020, along with all the other attractions.
For all you 2020 ticket holders, there is nothing further you need to do. All of your existing 2020 tickets, camping passes, and any extras that you have bought, will automatically carry forward and gain you entry to the 2021 festival. Since we have invested so much already into the forthcoming festival, we must urge everyone with 2020 tickets, to please hold on to them, and join us in 2021 for another incredible Twinwood.
If you hold on to your tickets, we promise you that your patience will be worth it, and it will allow us to make Twinwood 2021 as fantastic as it can possibly be.
We are a small family-run business and have been lucky enough to be able to stage the festival for nearly 20 years. We have already spent a huge amount on Twinwood 2020 - more than in any other year - with many important new infrastructure developments. So far this year we have invested in the following, all of which will stand us in good stead for 2021:
• Brand new dance floors across the entire site.
• New water pipes in the campsites - extensive new underground pipework and taps giving better water pressure.
• An additional 200 private toilets provided for those with special camping packages.
• A huge overhaul of the Main Arena backstage facilities for artists, with new dressing room buildings and new vehicle access routes.
• New roadways in the reception paddock, allowing a quicker through-time for all incoming caravanners etc, and avoidance of queues.
• A whole host of miscellaneous other site improvements, from improvements to the Arena entrances, and the Woodland Bypass, to environmentally-friendly bar cups and disposal.
Obviously this postponement comes as a huge disappointment for us, as well as for you, but by holding on to your tickets for 2021 you will help the festival so much, as well as helping all of our amazing suppliers, artists, and vintage traders who are also being hit hard by this crisis. If however you want a refund instead, then we will honour that request. For refund enquiries, click here.
For now, look after yourselves and your loved ones, and let’s all join up again in 2021, to celebrate another amazing Twinwood Festival.
From David Wooding and family.
We'd like to give an enormous THANK YOU to all who joined us at Twinwood 2019! I think we dare to say it was probably the best Twinwood Festival yet. We were all struck by how you were such amazing, friendly festival-goers, and everyone managed to look absolutely fabulous even in the record temperatures!
Already can't wait to come back? We are delighted to announce that Twinwood 2021 tickets are already available in our online shop right now!
