Festival organisers said in a statement: "Dear Neighbourhood Weekender family,
"First and foremost, we would like to send a big thank you to everyone who has purchased a ticket to the event so far. We are overwhelmed by the reaction. This is our third year and it already feels like we have an amazing community around the event.
"In light of the news surrounding the spread of the COVID-19 virus and following government guidance we have decided to postpone the festival until Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th September 2020."
The festival added: "We have been working non-stop with the artists' teams to replicate the existing line up as closely as possible. We appreciate your patience waiting for information, moving an event of this scale takes time and a lot of work. We are really happy with the outcome and hope you are too.
"Day tickets purchased for Saturday 23th May will now be valid for Saturday 5th September.
"Day tickets purchased for Sunday 24th May will now be valid for Sunday 6th September.
"Weekend tickets purchased for 23rd & 24th May will now be valid for 5th & 6th September. "
They conclude: "We would not be able to do this festival without you guys and ask you to stand by us at this particularly tough time.
"See you in September
"The Neighbourhood team x"
