Organisers have announced that this year’s NASS Festival has been cancelled due to uncertainty surrounding the COVID situation. Tickets will automatically be rolled over to 2022 and, for people who didn’t have any this year, camping tickets will go on sale September 17 at 5PM.
STATEMENT FROM NASS FESTIVAL
Hey NASS fam,
We’re truly sorry to be sharing this news with you.
Despite our best efforts, and the incredible support we’ve had from our wider festival family including our artists, athletes, suppliers and partners, running NASS this year has become impossible.
Whilst the Government has announced an insurance scheme, it doesn’t cover us if guidelines around social distancing etc. change. With growing rumours that guidelines for events could change, talk of a lockdown and vaccine passports now due to come in at some point this month instead of October, it’s simply too big of a risk for us to try and go ahead.
Festivals are big, complex beasts to run, with very high upfront costs. If we were to gamble, we run the risk of having to cancel a couple of days beforehand and taking a huge, 8 figure financial hit. As an independent business and, after two years of not being able to run NASS, the financial burden this scenario would create is simply too much for us to bear.
It would not only jeopardise the future of the show, but also put people’s livelihoods and jobs in danger.
Tickets will be automatically rolled over to NASS 2022 which will take place on 7 – 10 July.
Refunds will be available for those that would prefer, but as before (and we really hate to ask), if you can keep hold of your ticket and support the festival, we’d be hugely grateful. Ticket holders will receive an email later this evening with more details about how to keep hold of your tickets as well as a link to our refund form.
For those who didn’t have tickets for this year, camping tickets for NASS 2022 will go on sale at 5pm on Friday 17 September from our website. We’ll be announcing the line up for NASS 2022 later this year.
A huge thank you from us to all of you that kept your tickets from 2020 and bought tickets for this year. We know so many of you were looking forward to finally being part of a festival. Running NASS is what we love to do. Every single member of our team has worked long days and weekends to try and bring us all back together for an incredible show. We’re all really, really gutted that we can’t.
We’ll see you soon.
