Create Festival 2020 Cancelled

On the advice of public health authorities we have made the decision to cancel Create Festival 2020.

While this announcement comes at a time of uncertainty, and know how much this event means to many within our community, we take the health and safety of our attendees very seriously and urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forward by the UK Government.

Create Festival still has a few ideas up its sleeve in order to appropriately mark our 25th year anniversary, maybe later in the year, but we will keep you all updated via social media.

Those who applied to play at Create, fear not! We are still assessing submissions in the hope you are free to support us later in the year.

As always, be kind, help those who need it, and stay safe.

After much deliberation, it is with heavy hearts we have to announce the cancellation of Create Festival 2020. We are hoping to hold some other kind of 25th-anniversary celebration later in the year, more info on that to come soon. With regards to those who have applied to play at Create Festival, our panel of music venues, promoters, and radio show hosts will still be meeting to go through the 250 applications, and we look forward to working with some of you in the future. ...
