A Message To All Kelburn Campers

Hello there. Due to the ongoing effect of Covid-19 it is with great sadness that we have decided to postpone this year’s Kelburn Garden Party until July 2021. We have been watching the developing situation closely, and while we had hoped the ban on public gatherings and events could be lifted by July, we have concluded that it would be both risky and irresponsible to hold a festival under the current circumstances. We feel that Summer 2020 is going to be a period of reflection and recovery rather than a time of celebration and wild abandon, so we’ll be using the time to think on ways to improve our festival even more for next year.

We’ve been lucky enough to have 10 years of amazing Garden Parties, creating memories and friendships we will cherish forever and with your help Kelburn will be back next year with more magic, music and good vibes for us to enjoy together. It is our intention to roll over this year’s line-up where possible in order to present the festival we were looking forward to sharing this year.

Our new date is 2-5th July 2021.

We have written to all ticket holders with more details on the situation and further instructions as soon as possible. Tickets for the new dates in 2021 are on sale now at the 2020 prices and those of you who are currently using the instalment scheme can choose to restart these at a convenient time and spread payments for up to 14 months.

If you have any questions or want more information, please contact us at info@kelburnarts.com.

We also want to take this opportunity to send a great deal of love to all of those affected by Covid-19 and especially to the amazing people at the NHS and all you essential workers who are keeping the rest of us safe and supplied.

Finally, we thank each of you from the bottom of our hearts for your support in making Kelburn such a loving, exciting, and magical place to be; you will be sorely missed this year. We can’t wait to see you all again under the trees and stars in happier circumstances.

Stay Safe & Big Love,
Dave & The Kelburn Team
