"The money that the festival raises plays such a large part in enabling our charity to help disadvantaged people in our community throughout the year, and is a summer highlight for many of our team, acts, suppliers and traders, and (clearly from the response so far) many of you.

"We will be re-branding the festival as Readipop Festival 2021 and have asked all of the announced acts to play the rescheduled dates."

It was also announced that tickets already purchased will be valid for the new dates.

Organisers also fans for their understanding and patience, adding: "These are tough times for charities like ours and the only way in which we can hold a rescheduled Readipop Festival is with the support of all our existing ticket holders, friends and supporters.

We are so so grateful.

"For any questions regarding the rescheduled festival or our charity, please contact us at – we are working at reduced capacity at the moment so it may take a bit longer for us to get back to you.

"See you in July 2021.”
