It had been postponed until September 2021 due to COVID restrictions, with the pandemic also forcing the cancellation of the 2020 edition. The 2022 event sees the festival’s normal June-period dates resuming.

In Jessie Ware news, earlier this month the singer rescheduled her UK tour and announced some new dates.

Ware pulled four shows last December including two nights at the O2 Brixton Academy in London after her crew members contracted COVID. “I’m completely devastated to announce that sadly, we have to reschedule the remaining shows of the ‘What’s Your Pleasure?’ tour,” she said at the time.


The jaunt was previously moved from April 2021 to December 2021 due to ongoing concerns surrounding the pandemic.

She has now rescheduled her dates to May with the first of those cancelled at Bristol’s Marble Factory now going ahead on May 26, while two new shows in Halifax and Edinburgh have been added on June 19 and 22.
