Isle Of Wight Festival announces new dates and ticket details for 2021

This year's event was cancelled due to the coronavirus

Organisers of the Isle of Wight Festival have announced new dates for 2021 following the cancellation of this year’s event.

Last week, the 2020 bash was axed following the growing coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement the Isle of Wight team said their decision was “unavoidable” and vowed to return “stronger than ever” in 2021.

Lionel Richie, Lewis Capaldi, Snow Patrol,The Chemical Brothers, and Duran Duran were all due to headline at this year’s event over the weekend of June 11-14.

No details have been released on the line-up for next year at this stage or whether the same acts will headline in 2021.

The event was due to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year as was Glastonbury, which was also cancelled earlier this month.

The news follows the cancellation of SXSW and postponement of Coachella as the disease continues to wreak havoc across the globe.

SXSW was due to kick off in Texas earlier this month, while Coachella was set to take place next month. It has now been moved to October.
