The news comes after Neighbourhood Weekender, where Catfish and Ian Brown are set to headline, announced a newly rescheduled date for 2021.

The festival was originally set to take place on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May 2020 and was previously postponed until September 2020, but has now been moved again to Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 May 2021.

Organisers wrote in a statement: "Dear ticket holders of Neighbourhood Weekender Festival

"We hope everyone is as well as can be through this really difficult time. All of you should have been having an amazing weekend listening to live music with your best friends and it is a real shame that this could not happen.

"We were hopeful a few months ago that we could all be back together this September but following updated government advice surrounding Covid–19 we have now made the decision to move the festival to next year on the same weekend it has been historically.

"The new rescheduled dates for the festival are Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th of May 2021. All current tickets will remain valid for next year so please keep hold of them. If you cannot make the new dates please contact your ticket provider to get a refund."
