Wireless explained that they had “been closely monitoring” the ongoing situation, but said it had “become clear that cancelling is unavoidable”.
“Our heart goes out to the artists and fans who were looking forward to Wireless Festival. Were in this together and we thank you for your support,” the message reads.
Organisers went on to say that they were “working closely with ticketing partners” in order to process customer refunds, while those who wish to carry over their tickets to 2021 are able to do so.
“Subject to contract, Wireless Festival will be back next year on 2-4 July 2021 and will be worth the wait,” they added. You can see the full statement above.
