It is with profound regret that the Organising Committee for the Dark Sky Awakens Festival, scheduled for 8 to 10 May 2020, now announce that the Festival is postponed until 2021.

This decision has been taken against the backgound of the recent announcement by the Prime Minister advising against gatherings of more than 500 people for the foreseeable future, as part of the Government’s response to
the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Committee considers that its primary concern must always be for the health and safety of our Festival patrons and our community more generally and that Corvid-19 presents an unacceptable level of risk at this time.

However, the Committee remains optomistic for the future of the Festival and over the coming weeks will be monitoring the situation carefully and take professional advice before setting a replacement date in 2021. As soon as this decision is taken, we will issue a further statement.

The Committee also wishes to reassure all ticket holders that immediate steps will be taken to secure refunds through our ticketing agency as soon as possible.

Finally, the Committee wishes to express its sincere gratitude to the many friends and supporters within our community for the strong support for the Festival concept, and the encouragement you have given the Committee. We look forward to working with you again as soon as the current risks to public health subside and a new date is set.
