Olliefest cancelled due to pandemic
Olliefest 2020 has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The hugely popular event was due to take place in Ross-on-Wye over the August Bank Holiday.
The organisers said: “We, the organisers of Olliefest, have been working tirelessly in the hope that we would be able to bring you joy at Olliefest 2020 in the wake of the pandemic. Unfortunately, with the risk of the virus transmission still quite high, no more restrictions being lifted and the great numbers that attend Olliefest, we are unable to bring you this event safely.
“We understand a lot of people will be disappointed, as are we, but everyone’s safety is paramount to us, and we would not want to risk a local spike in cases. We will be back without a doubt in 2021 and tickets are available from the website now. All acts so far have also transferred their booking to next year and we have a few more exciting announcements in the pipeline.”
