Burghley House's inaugural Classic Ibiza concert postponed
A concert that was due to come to Burghley House near Stamford for the first time this Summer has been postponed because of coronavirus.
The live music event was due to have taken place on August 1 featuring the Urban Soul Orchestra, DJ Goldierocks and other singers. The intention was for it to replace Burghley's popular film festival.
But today (Thursday, April 2), organisers said it was postponed until 2021 with it now scheduled to appear at Burghley on Saturday, July 31, 2021.
Direcctors Lisa Ward and Katharine Brindley said: "In light of recent communications from Government, it is with a heavy heart that we have made the difficult, yet responsible, decision to postpone the 2020 Classic Ibiza, in association with San Miguel, tour until 2021. The new dates are available now on our website.
"The safety of you, our amazing audience, together with our performers, crew, medical team and the local charities and businesses that we support, will always be of paramount importance to us. We have made this decision now to ensure that Classic Ibiza can return in 2021 even stronger – what a party that will be!"
Anyone who had already bought tickets will be contacted directly next week and tickets will automatically be transferred to the new date.
The statement said: "After you have been contacted, you will have 28 days to apply for your refund. If we have not heard from you within this time your new 2021 tickets will be issued automatically – you do not need to do anything.
"Although this is incredibly disappointing for us all, we know in our hearts that this is the right decision."
