Call of The Wild Festival in UK rescheduled from May 29th to 31st to Sept. 18th to 20th

The second edition of UK’s Call of The Wild Festival , which will take place at the Lincolnshire Showground in Grange De Lings / Lincoln, UK has been rescheduled from May 29 to 31, 2020 to September 18 to 20, 2020 due to the COVID-19 Virus epidemic around the world.

The following message was posted on Call of The Wild‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):

“It is clear the current pandemic will have the country in turmoil for quite a while, ruling out any possibility of keeping to our May schedule, particularly the restrictions on mass gatherings that have been brought in and may still be in force come May, as well as all the disruptions to normal life that we’re likely to see. After listening to all the advice from central government and the Safety Advisory Group, the general feeling is that come September, we envisage that we will be back to a normal footing.

So, in the last few weeks, we’ve acted quickly to secure the venue, all our suppliers and secured a good majority of our existing line-up. Due to other touring commitments, we have had to swap Phil Campbell & the Bastard Sons to Friday & Massive Wagons to Sunday. We are incredibly disappointed to have lost Michael Monroe on the Saturday, but we are working very hard to bring you an equally great Saturday headline act.

We are hopeful that most of our ticket buyers will be able to join us in September, but appreciate that customers might have existing plans or commitments.

Our ticketing partner GIGANTIC will therefore be emailing all purchasers with the following options;

Tickets can be transferred automatically to the new date.
Tickets can be transferred to the 2021 event.
Full refunds can be arranged.
It will also be possible to swap day tickets, or claim a full refund.

Please respond to GIGANTIC’s email or — if preferred — contact them at [email protected]com.

Anyone who purchased Earlybird tickets directly from us at the festival last year should contact [email protected].co.uk & we will sort things out, on the same terms as above.

We wish to show our thanks by allocating 500 free weekend tickets to All NHS workers. These can be applied for by contacting [email protected].co.uk with proof/ID However, if you already have purchased a ticket for this year we will allocate you free weekend tickets for 2021. Deadline for applications 30th April 2020.

Apologies once more for the postponement. We’re still committed to delivering Lincolnshire’s biggest and best rock festival – a fantastic 3 days of fun with top-flight live music and a full festival experience. Check the website at https://callofthewildfestival.com/ for further info and updates.
