#FyneFest20 – Five Things #2 – Covid-19, Tickets, New Breweries & More
Hello and welcome back to our FyneFest 2020 blog series!
This is the second part of our ‘Five Things’ articles in the run up to June’s big weekend in Glen Fyne, and it’s probably overdue given the HUGE amount of updates we’ve had on the festival since the beginning of the year.
So without further ado, let’s crack on and get into the news about this summer’s party!
1. COVID-19 Update
The current public health situation is impossible to ignore, so let’s get this out of the way right at the start.
With a little over 12 weeks to go until #FyneFest20, we are continuing with plans to host the best festival we can. As it stands FyneFest 2020 is going ahead and we’re working to make our summer party as awesome as ever.
We are monitoring government guidance and expect advice to change in coming weeks – please know that we are following the situation closely and will be working with local authorities and our festival partners to put any necessary precautions in place for the festival. We will keep you up to date on any changes or measures implemented should Covid-19 continue to be an issue in the run up to June, but rest assured we will be doing everything we can to keep everyone safe.
We understand that the government may restrict public events such as FyneFest between now and June, but we’d like to assure you that all ticket holders will be refunded if guidance is issued that forces us to cancel the festival – we sincerely hope this is not the case, as we continue to plan to host the best possible FyneFest that we can, for everyone to enjoy.
Thank you for your understanding and patience – stay tuned for further updates.
2. Tier 1 Sold out!
If you missed the news over the weekend, Tier 1 tickets are now sold out! We want to thank everyone who has picked up their tickets to #FyneFest20 already – we’ve had a brilliant response so far and we’re really looking forward to welcoming you to Glen Fyne this summer.
Remember, the only difference between ticket tiers is that the earlier you book, the cheaper your ticket will be, so if you’re thinking of coming along, book up before we get to Tier 3!
3. Breweries For (3) Days!
We’ve recently revealed heaps of UK (and one Irish) brewery for the FyneFest Main Bar – if you’ve missed any of the announcements, head over to the website to check out the full list – we’re up to forty breweries in total!
Each of the breweries will pour on one bar, with beers organised by style on an ever-rotating carousel of awesome ales.
Plus we can exclusively add three more breweries in today’s blog – we’re delighted to welcome alcohol-free masters Big Drop, Edinburgh’s brilliant Campervan and Hertfordshire’s Mad Squirrel to the Main Bar list!
4. Music Makes The People Come Together
The first pieces of the FyneFest 2020 soundtrack are in place with a dozen bands confirmed for the festival!
Joining Massaoke (headlining Friday 5 June) on the bill are Scottish legends The Bluebells, avant-garde funkmasters Tom Maguire & The Brassholes, Edinburgh indie heroes Withered Hand and punky folksters The Langan Band, plus many more!
We’ve put together the start of an awesome playlist showcasing the bands confirmed for the festival and we’ll be updating it as new acts are announced.
Completing the FyneFest trilogy, we’ve also announced the first batch of food vendors for this year’s event!
Among the first eleven street food purveyors for #FyneFest20 are a host of returning favourites including seafood supremos Loch Fyne Oysters, cheese champions Truckle & Loaf and wrap wizards Shawarmarama!
There’s a few new additions still to come, but you can check out the list so far online and stay tuned to social for more!
Don’t forget we’re also looking for your designs for a limited edition FyneFest charity t-shirt too and the winning designer will win two tickets to this year’s festival!
