The line-up for this year's Beautiful Days festival is going to be announced this Friday, May 7.
Tickets for the event at Escot Park on August 20 - 22 went on sale on Friday, March 12, with the organisers promising further announcements in due course.
People who already had tickets for last year's cancelled festival had them automatically rolled over to this year.
The organisers say on their website: "A few of the artists who were scheduled to play in 2020 weren’t able to reconfirm for this year, but we are very excited about those who are signed up to join us in August."
They are planning a full capacity festival, as Government guidelines on Covid are due to allow large events to take place without restrictions after Step 4 of the 'roadmap to recovery' - but they are working with all the appropriate authorities to make sure this can happen safely.
As well as several stages, including a seated theatre tent, the festival will have the usual art installations, a crafts area, the 'Healing Garden', a huge children’s area, walkabout theatre, play zones in campsites, family camping, real ale bars, folk sessions and a variety of food and craft stalls.
