We have sadly had to cancel Moira Furnace Folk Festival 2020 due to the Corona virus pandemic. The festival was scheduled for 21st-23rd August 2020. The decision to cancel was made on 11th June 2020. We left making this decision as long as we could in the hope that we would be able to go ahead.
Due to the uncertainty and possible risks to public, artists and festival staff we had no real option other than to cancel. Our vendors and contractors have been most helpful in allowing us to carry deposits over to 2021. Our 2020 artists have shown understanding and will not be receiving fees. However some costs have already been incurred that we cannot recoup or carry over.
To ensure that Moira Furnace Folk Festival continues as we have done over the past 11 years we would like to try to recoup these costs to see us through to next year and ensure that, pandemic permitting, we can host the festival in 2021.
Many thanks for everyone's support now and over the years.
