SOUNDON Festival has announced that it is moving from 30th April and 1st May, and will now take place on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th August.
The two day music extravaganza, celebrating 30 years of dance music culture, from acid house to the latest urban sounds, will remain at Essex Sports Village, a 48 acre site in Purfleet.
All current ticket holders will be refunded in full, before being issued with a free weekend ticket for the new dates.
Festival Director, Danny Swallow explains the change of dates,
"Unfortunately, we realised that there was still work to be done to make the site 100% festival ready, so made the decision to move Soundon Festival. This wasn’t an easy decision, but we took it in order to give us the time to bring everything up to the high standards we’ve set ourselves.
We will look after current ticket holders, refunding them in full and giving them free tickets for the new dates, but our number one priority is to ensure that all Soundon Festival visitors can enjoy the quality music and entertainment we have planned, in a safe and accessible environment."
The move will bring some inevitable lineup changes which will be announced in due course, however, festival organisers plan to use the extra time to their advantage.
Danny Swallow added: "Many of the artists booked for our original dates have moved their diaries around to stick with us, so we’d like to say a big thank you to them.
However, we won’t be slowing down and plan to use the next few months to ensure that Soundon Festival boasts the biggest and best lineup of international talent available. We want this to be the perfect summer festival and are working flat out to make it happen."
