Abandon Normal Devices - AND Festival 2020

AND Festival 2020

It is with great sadness that we are postponing AND Festival 2020, which was due to take place 14th to 17th May. We are extremely disappointed to have reached this decision but with the ongoing concerns about the spread of COVID-19/coronavirus and the impact this will have nationally and globally in the coming months, we believe that this is necessary to protect the wellbeing of our staff, artists, our festival community and the public.
