“Devastated” Farmfest organizers have announced that this year’s event has been postponed. The Somerset Festival will now take place between August 3 and 5, 2023.
Farmfest 2022 was scheduled to take place on Friday July 29 and Saturday July 30, featuring headline titles such as Elder Island, Joy Orbison and Gentlemen’s Dub Club. However, due to a lack of ticket sales, the 15th version of the festival will not take place until next summer.
In a message to people due to attend this year, Farmfest said the delay was necessary “in order to safeguard the future” of the festival. They pointed to the current cost of living crisis and economic uncertainty as potential reasons for the lack of interest.

Those who have tickets for this year’s event have been reassured that their tickets will automatically roll over to next year. Plus, they can upgrade their Farmfest ticket to a Standon Calling 2022 ticket for just £80.
Alternatively, if you want your money back, you can do so in your TicketSellers account. The deadline for refund requests is August 20, 2022.
In an email to festival-goers, Farmfest organizers said: “We are devastated to announce the postponement of Farmfest 2022. Despite a hugely successful event last year, we have yet to sell enough tickets to make this year possible. Therefore, in order to safeguard the future of Farmfest, we have decided to postpone until August 3-5, 2023.
“We fully understand the challenges you all face with the rising cost of living and the uncertainty ahead. We appreciate that attending a festival may not be feasible this year, but we hope that when the economic dust will settle in 2023, you can all join us once again to party on the farm!”
They continued, “After 15 years of Farmfest, we’re not ready to give it up yet and we hope you’re not either. Tickets will remain on sale for 2023 when we’re back in full force!”
