Cancelled Big Green Gathering tickets ‘valid’ for Big Chill

Tickets plus extra £20 can be exchanged for entry

Fans who have bought tickets for this year’s cancelled Big Green Gathering festival will be able to trade their tickets for the forthcoming Big Chill festival.

The Big Green Gathering had been set to take place on July 29-August 2 in Somerset, but organisers cancelled the event after taking legal advice following the threat of an injunction from the local council.

Thousands of people had gathered around the area before the event had been due to officially start.

Now organisers have announced that ticket-holders can use their tickets, along with an extra £20 payment, to gain entry to the Big Chill festival, which takes place on August 6-9 at Eastnor Castle Deer Park, Herefordshire.

Acts set to play at the Big Chill include Gruff Rhys, Spiritualized, British Sea Power and Talvin Singh.
