JACK Up The Summer has been postponed, "with the heaviest of hearts" say its organisers, but they have announced that the 2021 event will be headlined by Heather Small and Heaven 17.

The throwback festival was due to be held at North Fairlee Farm on 7-9 August 2020, but it has been postponed until next year because of coronavirus.

The band behind the hit Spirit In The Sky, Dr and the Medics, will also play next year.

Jack Up The Summer organisers said: "We would like to say a huge thank you all for your patience and understanding as we have been navigating our way through this difficult and challenging scenario.

"To ensure your safety and overall enjoyment of our event, it is with the heaviest of hearts we have no option but to postpone. The show will go on – when it is safe to do so. 

"Jack Up is a true labour of love for our small team, and after the many months of work which have already gone into planning the event, being unable to share it with you this year is utterly heartbreaking.

"We know you will be just as disappointed as we are, but with everything that’s going on in the world right now, we hope you can appreciate that this is the right thing to do."
