Farmfest 2022 postponed due to operating costs, organisers confirm

Posted on: 21 Jun 2022

The festival was due to take place in Somerset from 28 - 30 July.


Organisers of the popular Farmfest have confirmed the postponement of their 2022 edition, citing low ticket sales and the ongoing cost of living crisis as key elements of their decision.


Posted yesterday (Monday 20 June), a statement released across the festival's social channels expressed their "devastation" at having to put the event on hold, and their intention to make a comeback in 2023.


Ticket holders are advised to keep an eye out for an email from ticket-selling platforms, where full refunds will be available.



"We are devastated to announce the postponement of Farmfest 2022," the statement reads.


"Despite a hugely successful event last year we have not yet sold enough tickets to make this year possible. Therefore in order to safeguard the future of Farmfest we have decided to delay until 3 - 5 August 2023.


"We completely understand the challenges you are all facing with the increased cost of living and uncertainty ahead. 


"We appreciate that attending a festival may not be achievable this year, but we hope that when the economic dust settles in 2023 you can all join us once more to party on the farm!"


Managing to stay unique among a growing small festival landscape in the UK, Farmfest showcases a vibrant range of established and emerging artists, spanning a broad range of live and club genres.


The festival team were preparing to host one of their most ambitious musical lineups to date this summer, topped by Bristol's own Elder Island and featuring the likes of Gentleman's Dub Club, Joy Orbison and Jamz Supernova among others.


Farmfest 2023 is set to take place from 3 - 5 August 2023. Ticket holders for the festival's 2022 edition will soon receive and email from ticketing channels regarding their refund options.
