Isle of Wight Festival 2020 Cancelled Due To Coronavirus

The 2020 Isle of Wight Festival will no longer be taking place this year due to the ongoing health crisis.

The festival was due to host headliners Lewis Capaldi, Lionel Richie, Black Eyed Peas, the Chemical Brothers, Duran Duran and more, from 11-14 June, at Seaclose Park in Newport.

The Isle of Wight festival organizers said the “decision hasn’t been taken lightly and we have tried our hardest to make it work, but it was unavoidable given the current status. The whole team was excited to welcome everyone to the island for another fantastic festival and we extend our sincere apologies to everyone who was looking forward to it as much as we were.”

“The safety of our audience, artists, crew and the Isle of Wight community is paramount and we appreciate your patience whilst we’ve been working through this unprecedented situation,” they continued. “We’ll be back stronger than ever in 2021 and we hope to see you all again next year.”

Many festivals, tours and events are being postponed or outright canceled due to coronavirus. Find out what else…
