Hello everyone, we hope you're doing okay in these unusual and uncertain times.
We've decided that with the current state of the world, Portals Festival 2020 can't go ahead as planned. We're rescheduling the event to a similar time of year in 2021 and we're confident we can make next year the best festival yet.
We are working with all the bands from this year to try our hardest to enable them to be able to play the festival in 2021, however we hope you understand this may not be possible for some.
Tickets remain valid for our 2021 dates, which we’ll announce as soon as possible. Alternatively, refunds are available at point of purchase.
As we’re sure you’re aware, Portals is a labour of love that the four of us undertake in our spare time, with the yearly festival being our proudest achievement for the past two years.
We're obviously devastated that we've spent many many hours building and promoting the festival for this year, but we hope you agree it's the correct decision to make as the safety of our bands, staff, volunteers and audience is the most important thing.
Whilst we don't rely on Portals as our main source of income, we have spent a lot of our money promoting the festival this year. If you would like to support us financially, and feel able to do so, please consider buying some merch from our bandcamp: https://portalslondon.bandcamp.com/ we would really appreciate it. We'd also encourage you to do the same for the bands you were looking forward to catching out and about in the coming months - this is a difficult time for touring musicians, and grabbing a record or outfit from their stores can make a huge difference.
Assuming that the world situation improves by late-Summer/Autumn, we will have some really exciting gigs and all-dayers coming up. To receive all the details first, you can sign up to our mailing list here: http://eepurl.com/dlxol5.
Please let us know if you have any questions at all, you can reach us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay safe and healthy and look out for one another (from a safe distance).
All the best, the Portals team x
