There Will Be Festivals This Summer!


Live Nation and Festival Republic are to be congratulated on their work with the government on trial events over the past month.  Without exception they have reviewed well – to the extent that it has been reported that the public were safer at these events than on the high street! 




We are very pleased to announce our involvement with the Government sanctioned Download Pilot Event

Download Pilot will be a 10,000 capacity camping festival in Donington Park on 18th – 20th June, featuring a line up of DL faves to be announced.
All attendees will have been tested before entry, meaning Downloaders will be able to rock out without a mask or social distancing.

With an audience of 10,000 and limited space it has been an extremely difficult task to determine which traders will receive an offer to trade. Around 10 pitches have been allocated, we would have loved to offer more but it just isn’t possible.

We are now definitely looking forward to Latitude, Bloodstock, Leeds and Reading taking place without a reduction in audience levels.  
With demand sky high following release from lockdown, we can look forward to sell-out crowds.  There will be changes to events – organisational and layout changes – to ensure the lessons learned from the trial events are implemented and public, performers, staff and traders can enjoy the festivals in as safe an environment as possible.

Apart from Download Pilot (which has limited numbers of traders) applicants who were offered a site for 2020 events will be offered a site for 2021. Any such applicants will be considered before we seek replacements.

We are working on a shortened timescale so it is more important than ever that if you receive an offer to trade, be sure to respond promptly to ensure we don’t allocate your pitch to someone else.

We look forward to seeing in a field this summer!
