DAXTONBURY FESTIVAL CORONAVIRUS STATEMENT

AFTER MUCH SOUL-SEARCHING IT IS WITH DEEP REGRET THAT TONIGHT (SATURDAY 16 MAY) THE ORGANISER, DAX MILLER, HAS DECIDED TO CANCEL THIS YEAR’S EVENT DUE TO THE ON-GOING SITUATION WITH CORONAVIRUS. THE TEAM HAVE TRIED TO COME UP WITH WAYS WHICH WOULD ENABLE THE EVENT TO PROCEED BUT THERE IS NO WAY WE COULD MAINTAIN THE ETHOS AND VIBE OF THE FESTIVAL AND ENSURE THE SAFETY OF BANDS, CREW, SITE STAFF AND THE AUDIENCE. IT IS NOT EVEN CLEAR WHETHER LARGE EVENTS WILL BE LEGALLY ALLOWED TO PROCEED BY THE END OF JULY SO ALL IN ALL WE HAVE DECIDED TO NOW PUT ALL OUR EFFORTS INTO THE 2021 EVENT.

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED A TICKET AND WOULD LIKE TO ROLL THIS OVER TO THE 2021 EVENT, YOU DON'T NEED TO DO ANYTHING AND WE WILL RELEASE THE NEW DATES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR TICKET(S) TO BE REFUNDED PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH THE KIM@DAXTONBURYFESTIVAL.CO.UK STATING THE NAME YOU PURCHASED YOUR TICKET(S) UNDER AND WE WILL PROCESS A REFUND FOR YOU, LESS THE BOOKING FEE WHICH OUR TICKET PROVIDER CHARGED

WE ARE GUTTED THAT IT HAS COME TO THIS – WE’RE ALL VERY SAD AND EMOTIONAL BUT SAFETY MUST PREVAIL.

DAX AND THE TEAM

DAXTONBURY FESTIVAL IS THE BEST THREE DAY PARTY IN BEDFORDSHIRE! NOW IN ITS TWELFTH YEAR, AND DEDICATED TO RAISING MONEY FOR LOCAL CANCER AND MEDICAL CHARITIES, OUR FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT FEATURES OVER THIRTY MUSICAL ACTS, DJ SETS AND A HOST OF OTHER ACTIVITIES AND ADVENTURES GUARANTEED TO PROVIDE A FUN FILLED WEEKEND IN THE BEAUTIFUL SETTING OF NORTH BEDFORDSHIRE.

LOCATED ON FARMLAND JUST BEYOND SANTA POD RACEWAY, NEAR THE VILLAGE OF PODINGTON, THE FESTIVAL HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS THE LOVE CHILD OF A LIAISON BETWEEN GLASTONBURY AND A VILLAGE FETE. WE RATHER LIKE THAT!

THE FESTIVAL IS HELD IN MEMORY OF CHRIS KELLY, A MAN TAKEN TOO SOON. WE AIM TO PROVIDE A BOUTIQUE FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE WHICH WILL BRING YOU BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN. OUR SITE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A SAFE AND ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE FOR FESTIVAL GOERS OF ALL AGES, WITH IMPROVED ACCESS AND CAR PARKING FACILITIES.

BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU AND WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE SAFE WE MAKE NO CHARGE FOR OVERNIGHT OR FULL WEEKEND CAMPING. OUR NEW CAMPING FIELD HAS AMAZING VIEWS OF THE LOCAL COUNTRYSIDE AND YET IS JUST A FEW HUNDERED METRES FROM THE MAIN STAGE.

TO HELP TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF LIFE WHY NOT TRY OUR FULL-ON GLAMPING EXPERIENCE – JUST BRING A SLEEPING BAG AND HAVE YOUR TENT READY-ERECTED AND YOUR CAMP BEDS WAITING. WE’LL EVEN PROVIDE YOU WITH A NICE STRING OF FAIRLY LIGHTS TO HELP YOU FIND YOUR WAY HOME FROM THE LATE NIGHT PARTY TENT AND OUR ON-SITE BARS.

BUT DON’T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT. THIS IS WHAT FESTIVAL GOERS HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE 2018 FESTIVAL.

“Thank you all for a wonderful weekend. It was our first time at Daxtonbury, our first time camping and our first time attending a festival with our children. It's been amazing and we are already planning on coming back next year!!”
“We had a fabulous time, wonderful, amazing staff and volunteers, lovely people attending and some of the cleanest festival toilets I have ever seen.”
“This festival gets better every year Dax - you and your team think of everything!”
“Thank you Daxtonbury. What a fantastic weekend. So many great bands and top tunes being spun at Loveboat. The food was amazing, the people friendly, and the sun …. oh the sun!!”
“I live locally and had never heard of it until recently so I was shocked by the huge space, amount of people, amazing PA system and the organization through out!”
