2021 Update

The line-up for BD2021 is going to be announced on Friday 07 May!

Help support the live events industry

Help support the live events industry

We’re backing the #KeepVatAt5 campaign urging the Government to keep VAT on ticket sales at 5% for 3 years. Maintaining the rate will significantly help the recovery of the whole of the live music industry. Please help spread the word and share messages on the festival’s social media or write to your local MP. PLEASE COMPLETE THE FESTIVAL SURVEY BY 22 FEBRUARY For the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport Committee’s ‘Future Of Festivals Inquiry’ they need to hear from YOU about what you have missed the most about festivals during the pandemic and what they mean to you. Please take part in their short survey and help them make the case to Ministers about why supporting our sector is so important Link to Survey:...

No Beautiful Days this year

No Beautiful Days this year

We are very sad to say that Beautiful Days will not take place this year This decision has not been taken lightly and we are very aware of the impact this news will have but it’s unavoidable given the current global crisis. The wellbeing of everyone involved in the festival and the wider local community is our top priority but the uncertainties around COVID-19 make it impossible for us to confidently plan and safely deliver the event this August. We want to send our love and best wishes to everyone who was set to attend, to perform, to work or trade at the festival. We are really sorry we won’t see you in Escot Park this Summer. We’ll be talking to artists over the coming months about moving to the 2021 line-up but no announcements will be made until later in the year. Ticket bookings for this year will automatically rollover to 2021 or refunds are available. Full details are on the festival website. Hope to see you in 2021 Stay...
