The Doonhame Festival was due to return to the grounds of The Crichton in Dumfries for the second time on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th July 2020, however due to the current Coronavirus pandemic and the government advice around social distancing and restrictions on large gatherings, the festival team has this week announced their decision to postpone the event until 2021.

The two-day family-friendly music festival has now been rescheduled for the 30th and 31st July 2021 and tickets will remain valid for those who are able to attend next year. Refunds for tickets and booking fees can be arranged by completing the form on the festival website by 24th July 2020.  Early Bird Tickets are still on sale for anyone who would like to buy tickets for the 2021 event.

Sandy Sweetman, Joint Festival Director said: “Despite our disappointment that the 2020 Doonhame Festival cannot go ahead as planned in July, we all know that the priority for this year is to follow government advice and to comply with the social distancing measures that are in place to limit the spread of Covid-19.  This is a particularly difficult time, but we must keep everyone safe. We know festival-goers were excitement about our 2020 line-up, so the good news is that most of the performers have already agreed to join us on the Doonhame stage at The Crichton in 2021 and that includes our headline acts; The Feeling and Bad Manners. Thank you to everyone for their understanding and please stay safe.”

More information regarding plans for 2021 will be announced in due course.
