Covid-19 updates

Coronavirus update – 26th February 2021

In line with the government ‘Roadmap’ allowing larger events to open safely with no restrictions is from 21st June 2021 at the earliest. We have now confirmed new dates for the Irlam Live Festival 2021. New dates are Friday 17 to Sunday 19 September 2021.

Ticket holders tickets are safe and will simply roll over to the new dates and new tickets will be issued closer to the event.

YO! FEST 2021 CANCELLED. Because the new dates fall in term time we have no choice but to cancel Friday afternoon’s YO! FEST 2021. For those with YO! FEST tickets, your tickets will be refunded over the next few weeks. Please bear with us. But the good news is YO! FEST the festival for ‘Young Ones’ will be back bigger and better in 2022. 

We are so please to finally see light at the end of the tunnel and can’t wait to see you all at Irlam Live 2021. This will be the best one yet.

Stay safe everyone x

Coronavirus update – 1st October 2020

As we remain in a global pandemic we are keeping a careful eye on the on-going developments. But as organisers of an event the size of Irlam Live we are not standing still. We are currently working flat out to bring Irlam Live for the new dates of 4-6 June 2021.

Still eight months out from the new dates. We are constantly monitoring the updated regulations and interpreting government guidelines. We are also part of the Association of Festival Organisers who bring more realistic information to the table and of course what the larger events are planning.

We have some great people on-board making Irlam Live the great event it is. We use industry leaders in ticketing, production, security, music management, health and safety, bars and medical.    

If the pandemic, and restrictions continue into next summer we will once again move the dates and roll over your tickets to the new dates.

Whatever your opinion on the current restrictions they are still the current restrictions and what we must work to. Please bear with us, and our pledge to you as an Irlam Live ticket holder, is we will bring you a fab, better than ever Irlam Live Music Festival when it is safe to do so.

Coronavirus update – 23rd July 2020

We have taken the difficult decision to postpone Irlam Live for 18-20 September 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic and social distancing restrictions currently in place for large events.

As the Covid-19 pandemic broke last March, we postponed the original dates of Irlam Live and put a two-tier plan in place with a view to having an event this year should the government guidelines ease.

Earlier this month the government announce the easing of restrictions for festival events and with new measures and guidelines in place we were ready to bring Irlam Live 2020 in under the ‘new normal’ and go ahead with the September dates. But despite our best efforts it wasn’t to be.

We have now postponed Irlam Live and the new dates are 4-6 June 2021. If you have Irlam Live tickets they will simply roll over to the new dates and new tickets will be issued closer to the event.

As organisers we have taken lots of positives from the difficulties of the last few months and promise Irlam Live 2021 will be better than ever.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding during these extraordinary times. Please keep an eye on facebook page for regular updates.

Coronavirus update – 9th July 2020

Good News!!! Today the Government gave thumbs up to outdoor events, festivals and theatre shows can resume in England from this weekend, as long as they have “a limited and socially distanced audience”, we are waiting on the guidance and to interpret what “a limited and socially distanced audience” actually means. Fingers crossed.

Coronavirus update – 21st March 2020

Under these awful circumstances, our festival seems really insignificant at this time with not just friend’s lives and livelihoods on the line but the whole planets. We are pushing back the dates for the Irlam Live Music Festival to 18-20 September 2020.

The new dates are six months away and hopefully by then the current situation will be behind us. If there are any doubts whatsoever or the situation is not showing signs of recovery for the September dates. We will push the whole event back to 4-6 June 2021. We feel this option gives us more than a fair chance of having an event in 2020 and something very much for us all to look forward to.

If you have Irlam Live 2020 ticket, they will roll-over to the new dates and new tickets will be issued.

Thank you for your kind messages of support and understanding.
