First festival of 2021 announced

MUSIC festival organisers are planning an event in Chelmsford in 2021, after their initial plans were scuppered due to Covid-19.

Artists already confirmed for New World FSTVL 2021 include garage stars Artful Dodger, Lisa Maffia, Oxide & Neutrino and Shola Ama.

The event on Saturday, July 17, starts at 11am and is set to finish at 11pm.

An event had been planned on the same site, land adjacent to Margaretting Road near Hylands Park, before the pandemic forced the cancellation of festivals and other events.

The same organisers arranged a live virtual festival with contributions from several artists on July 19.

They are now keen to start putting in arrangements for events in 2021.

A statement on the website said: “Thanks to all those that participated in the virtual fest in 2020! Let’s get ready for 2021!

“With over 50 artists booked already you know this is going to be the festival not to miss.

“We are hosting a dance music festival in the heart of Chelmsford, Essex on part of the old V festival site.

“With lovely surroundings and easy access, you will not be disappointed and you will have the time of your life at New World Fest 2021!”

An application has been submitted to Chelmsford City Council for a licence that will be decided at a later date.
