Barefoot Festival and Barefoot Gathering

A message about COVID-19: It is with great sadness that Barefoot Festival 2020 has been canceled... please see below for full information.

Dear Beautiful Barefoot Family,

Firstly and most importantly, we hope that you and your family are safe and well during these uncertain times.

We are writing to ask for your patience and support during these unprecedented times. As you know, we have been deep in the throws of planning and organising Barefoot Festival 2020 with teachers booked, Musicians, Show Girls, a beautiful Big Top, Solar Power, twinkling festoon lights and amazing caterers. We were all ready to welcome you and yet unfortunately, as some of you may have anticipated, we are going to have to cancel Barefoot Festival 2020 due to Covid-19. Your safety and the safety of our crew is our first priority.

If you have booked tickets to this year's festival and we are asking you to support us by holding on to your tickets for this year and exchanging them for like for like tickets to Barefoot Festival 2021. We have all your details, so you need not take any action at this point. As soon as we reschedule, we will contact you to rearrange booking and reissue your tickets.

We would be so very grateful if you could help sustain us in this way. Without it, we are very uncertain of the future of our beautiful summertime gathering. This is a particularly devastating time for independent festivals, artists, musicians and performers and by supporting us in this way, in turn we can pass this support on by ensuring we steer through these turbulent times and return next year and keep the arts and festival industry flowing. The Barefoot Community have always been so incredibly supportive, and we couldn’t put on an event without each and every one of you, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

In the meantime, we will try to keep the community inspired, upbeat and connected through our social media pages. It goes without saying that when we return for Barefoot Festival 2021 and it's going to be an AMAZING celebration, bigger, brighter, more sparklier and wilder than EVER before. We will ensure that we reward your patience with a truly magical event!

Thank you in advance for your kindness, generosity and patience as we navigate these uncharted waters.
We hope that you and your loved ones all stay well and safe.
With much love, warmth & best wishes to each and every one of you,
Team Barefoot
