CLOUDSPOTTING MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL 10TH BIRTHDAY

Cloudspotting Music and Arts Festival returns to Gisburn Forest in 2021 – on the weekend of July 23rd-25th.

Following the postponement of the festival last year, we are thrilled to be planning celebrating our 10th anniversary and can’t wait to welcome you back to our remote and gorgeous forest setting. Festival-goers can look forward to a relaxed weekend of brilliant and diverse live music, workshops, family-friendly arts activities, great food and drink – with plenty of extra embellishments to mark our 10 year celebrations.

Cloudspotting is grateful for the support of Forestry England, The Grand, Clitheroe; Arts Council England and Ribble Valley Borough Council.

Existing Ticket Holders - New Dates
This year’s festival dates have been moved forward from June 18-20 after the recently published government road map. All tickets purchased for the original date are valid of the new dates. Anyone who purchased tickets but find they can no longer attend, can either hold their tickets over for 2022, or receive a full refund, as long as this is claimed by April 12, 2021. If you wish to claim a refund, please email spottingclouds@gmail.com and allow up to 10 days for the refund to be processed.
Extra Night’s Stay
For those of you who like to kick back and prolong your stay, Cloudspotting has come to an agreement with Forestry England to allow a Sunday night camp-over. The Sunday evening will include some camp-fire acoustic music in the forest, a little intimate celebration of Cloudspotting’s 10th birthday. To stay on the Sunday night, you will need an additional ticket, priced £10 for over 12s (free for under 12s).
Line-up
We are currently reviewing our programme and ensuring that everyone involved can attend the new dates. There will be a few changes within the music line-up announced so far. We look forward to sharing some exciting new developments in the very near future.
Covid-19
**NB: Cloudspotting is an intimate festival of around 500 people and organisers will be working with a north-west based medical advisory group to ensure complete compliance with regard to mitigating risks around Covid-19.
