ONE of the biggest music events in the region has again been postponed due to Covid.

Nozstock had been due to go ahead this week, but organisers have again had to push it back a year.

In a statement, they said: "We are devastated that we find ourselves in this position once again but unfortunately we must announce the 22nd edition of Nozstock The Hidden Valley will be postponed and will now take place between July 21 and July 24, 2022.

"Words can’t even begin to explain how we feel about having to postpone again.

"We’ve been working tirelessly to figure out ways that we can deliver a safe and secure event this July, which lives up to the expectations we’ve set for our really special and intimate festival.

"Ultimately, despite calls from the industry, Covid cancellation insurance has not yet been implemented and we have run out of time – Economically, we cannot keep pushing on without this in place, especially with production costs rising every day and recent reports of increased cases and a possible delay to the roadmap.

"If we were to go ahead, the financial risk could affect Nozstock’s future beyond this year."

The statement added that recent supply issues had made hosting the event even more difficult.

Despite the festival not going ahead this year, there are plans for smaller events which can be socially distanced if necessary.

Tickets for this year's event will be automatically rolled over to 2022, though refunds are available until July 26 this year.
