We haven’t sat on our hands here at Deva Fest towers!
We are continuing to book some great artists to add to the DF bill and are working behind the scenes to plan for a fabulous and safe return to the fields. Of course there is still a little doubt all round that we will all be released from social distancing rules this June, but things seem to be going in the right direction, and we are as positive as we have been that we will get the green light for Summer 2021…..

The outlook for the summer continues to improve. Deva Fest has joined the Association of Independent Festivals (https://aiforg.com) alongside some of the country’s most amazing festivals to be at the forefront of understanding the latest on health and safety, operational guidelines, insurance and all the technical and logistical challenges the sector faces as we try and get back to some kind of normal.
In the mean time we thank you for you amazing support and belief in Deva Fest. We want to reward you with the party you deserve this summer, but if there is a roll back in the Covid situation our first thoughts are with you and keeping everyone safe, so our tickets remain on sale with our Covid guarantee, which basically boils down to a refund if we can’t go ahead, or keep your ticket for the re-arranged event (which would be August 2022)
