KingsStock Covid-19 Update – June 2021
We are sad, and a bit frustrated, that we find ourselves in this position once again but unfortunately we must announce that KingsStock 11 will be postponed and will now take place the weekend of the 5th, 6th, 7th August 2022.
Words can’t even begin to explain how we feel about having to postpone again. We’ve been working hard to figure out ways that we can deliver an appropriate event for these strange times, which also lives up to the expectations we’ve set for our really special and always intimate festival.
We are no longer confident we could deliver the fabulous event you’ve come to expect, plus the increased demands on our amazing crew of volunteers is more than we feel we can expect of them. Believe us, it has been a hard decision to make, which we have agonised over. A massive thank you to each and every one of you for your ongoing support and understanding – KingsStock would not be here without you!
In the meantime, we do have some positive news. We are planning on bringing some form of KingsStock to us all over the coming months in the form of smaller events which can be delivered in accordance with the ever changing guidance requirements.
The first of our new KingsStock Firestarter Sessions will take place on Friday 30th July 2021, with live and in person performances from the fabulous Long For The Coast, and Firewoodisland!
Ticket are limited, so please move fast so you don’t miss out.
We have a programme of ten Firestarter Sessions planned, counting down to when we can all get together for a proper festival in 2022. More details for the Sessions will be released in due course, but you can expect seasonal specials, and more of our favourite acts returning!
So bittersweet news in bittersweet times.
