A spokesperson for the organisers said: “We are delighted that the vast majority of artists playing at the festival have confirmed they will return. Everyone involved in the festival and the artists that are playing are working really hard to give you the festival you wanted.
“For those that can, we kindly ask that you keep hold of your tickets and be part of the Neighbourhood Weekender next year. We have a great community around this event and together we can get through this. We hugely appreciate your patience and support.
“These are very tough times for everyone and we want to have the biggest party with you when we are out the other side.
