The news of the summer holiday weekend that looks likely follows Slam Dunk, who are postponing their May festival to September, with the caveat that the rescheduling will hopefully “leave enough room for maneuver in the event of delays in the current roadmap”

In the case of Reading & Leeds, the team simply writes, “Following the government’s recent announcement, we can’t wait to get back to the fields this summer LET’S GO”
