Following a recent article in The Observer on 7th March which was also incorrectly covered by some other news outlets, we wish to simply clarify the following:

As an experienced and responsible event promoter, we will continue to follow UK government and NHS guidelines surrounding all forthcoming shows this year. We have no intention of pressing the government to “say everybody needs a vaccination to get in”, and we are disappointed that the article suggests our events director Josh has stated otherwise.  Our position continues to be that safety is our priority, and we are discussing a wide variety of measures to make the festival season possible. We continue to work with all the relevant authorities to help reach the re-opening of the night-time and live sector.

Take care, and stay safe.
