Following an encouraging announcement from the prime minister last week in regard to setting out a road map for the return to normality, we are happy to have some positive news on the future of festivals and the events industry.
However, following a comprehensive review and continued cooperation with the Local Authority, event partners, our supply chain and some key industry leaders, we have made what we know, and feel is the right decision to move Connected Festival to our planned and pre-advertised 2nd fallback date on the MAYDAY bank holiday – Sat 30 Apr & Sun 01 May 2022
As previously stated, the team at Connected want to be as upfront and honest with you as possible, with not only what we are doing but why we are doing it too. Our primary focus has been to ensure that Connected Festival WILL RETURN TO LYDD, as safely as possible, without doubt or hesitation. Whilst the roadmap was a positive step in the right direction, we are much more confident in being able to bring you a BIGGER & BETTER event on the MAY BANK HOLIDAY dates, at a time where we feel more assured and more importantly, we will be allowed to run without any kind of disruption or restrictions.
Finally, we have always pledged to work with the events industry and festivals alike, especially following the impact that COVID has had on all of us. Having looked at the festival schedule at the end of the summer, the step to move out of this heavily congested period to May is a NO BRAINER. We would rather YOU our customers, get to enjoy both our event and events alike (LIKE WE WOULD!) instead of having to choose between them or sacrifice one for the other.
The move to May has also allowed us to secure and improve what already is a fantastic line up, without the worry of conflicting schedules, and we are extremely excited to bring these acts to our stages… Trust us… you will not be disappointed!
In the coming weeks and months, we are planning to release more Line Up information and many more exciting announcements including some imminent Live Streams, newly introduced “Connected Presents” Club Shows, Camping, travel information, and much much more. The Connected ambition is to ensure that you have the best weekend possible and with the additional planning time, it really does mean we will kick off what will surely be an EPIC Summer in 2022, with Connected leading the way in style!
All tickets have been automatically transferred to the May 2022 date and if you haven’t already got yours, we will be releasing information on how to secure your ticket for 2022 through the redesigned deposit & payment scheme… WATCH THIS SPACE!
Finally, we are crossing our fingers and looking forward to the return to normality, hoping you are all staying safe & looking forward to seeing you again soon! Our OFFICIAL EVENT RELAUNCH will be announced (with exciting news on the horizon) later this month. In the meantime, if you do have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch via our social channels or email and we will do our best to respond personally to every single enquiry. Until then… stay safe, sit tight and start preparing… MAY 2022… GET READY…WE ARE COMING!
