A "sizeable allocation" of tickets will be offered free to NHS workers
The latest festival to call off their 2020 event due coronavirus are Brixton jazz, funk and soul extravaganza Cross The Tracks. The festival will now go ahead in 2021, with a "sizeable allocation" of free tickets for NHS staff.
The festival was scheduled to take place on 7 June, with the likes of Sister Sledge, Norman Jay, Gilles Peterson, Cinematic Orchestra and Madlib among the attractions. Now it's been announced that the festival is being postponed to 2021, with the free tickets offered to NHS workers "to say a heartfelt thanks for their brave, incredible efforts".
Tickets that have already been sold will now be valid for the 2021 event instead, but refunds will be available instead if you prefer – they're currently working out the mechanism for this with ticket outlets, so keep an eye on their website for details.
The Cross The Tracks team said: "We're gutted to have to press Pause for now, but we'll be back, bigger and brighter than ever. Thanks for your understanding… stay safe and look out for each other."
