The spirit of Houghton is stronger than ever
Following the forced last-minute cancellation of this year’s festival, the team behind Houghton has confirmed that it will return for 2020.
In a statement released today, the festival confirmed that next year’s edition will take place from August 6th-9th, 2020. Organisers of the Craig Richards-curated events also revealed that those who purchased tickets to this year’s sold-out event will be given priority when tickets go on sale. Everyone who did purchase a ticket for the 2019 event will be sent an email on Wednesday, October 9th giving them access to a link for tickets which will expire after one month.
“An enormous amount of work goes into the creation of Houghton and after many months of planning, preparation and subsequently building, the festival site was presented in all its glory,” reads the festival’s statement. “Suffice to say dismantling it immediately after building it was indeed surreal. That said we are confident that the decisions made at a time of extreme challenge were utterly correct.”
The statement continues: “We take great pride in our reputation and have made every effort to recover swiftly and with dignity. Understandably, the aftermath has been complicated but by navigating the cancellation process thoroughly and in a professional manner. We feel this extraordinary debacle has now reached a satisfactory conclusion and are delighted to announce that the festival will take place next summer.”
A number of the festival guides that were due to be handed out to attendees at this year’s festival have been circulated around various shops across the UK, and have also been made available via Juno to those who purchased tickets for this year’s event.
The festival’s statement concludes: “There are already high levels of anticipation for next year’s celebration, our collective excitement is held gently in suspension. With the benefit of a full dress rehearsal, we will return with an even greater sense of purpose.”
