Keynsham Music Festival

Keynsham Music Festival 2020 CANCELLED

We’ll be back in July 2021 Over the past several weeks, our world has been turned upside down by the global coronavirus pandemic. Our hearts are with everyone impacted by it. It is with deep sadness that, the Trustees of Keynsham Music Festival, have decided not to stage the 2020 festival. This difficult decision has been made in light of the current situation that we all face and feel together. Like many around the world, we are doing our best to quickly adjust to these complex times.

Our volunteers have been working since last November to organise what was going to be our biggest, most diverse and most exciting festival ever. Every one of our suppliers has offered to carry over our deposits and current contracts until next year, for which we are very grateful.

All trader deposits will be fully refunded in the coming days. All artists, performers, acts, and traders will be rebooked for the festival in 2021.

All of the people who work in the industry upon which the festival relies so much every year now find themselves in a very difficult and unknown future. We send our heartfelt best wishes to all of them. Please note that next year’s festival week will take place from 28th June - 4th July 2021. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope that we will be able to put on a special community event later in the year. Of course, the timing of the event will depend on the health of the nation. Keep an eye on social media and our website for updates.

We were about to announce a new sponsor partnership with Truespeed and I include an extract from their Regional Manager, as it sums up what we as volunteers feel about this festival of ours…

“As a Keynsham resident myself, I know how much the festival means to the community and the local businesses that are involved. It’s amazing that an event of this size and calibre is organised purely by volunteers and is a huge testament to the incredible things that can be done when local people work together.

The festival is all about community and that’s exactly what TrueSpeed stands for as well. It was an easy decision to support an event that provides so much to Keynsham and its residents.”

On behalf of all of the team, thank you all for your support so far. We can’t wait to back in 2021 to celebrate what will be our 25th Anniversary! Take care and look after each other. Mike May, Chairman, Keynsham Music Festival
