Playground Festival organisers announce new dates for September

Nile Rodgers is due to play at the event

Playground Festival has been postponed to later in the year due to coronavirus restrictions.

Organisers of the event at Rouken Glen Park in East Renfrewshire said that they were “unable to guarantee” the safe delivery of the music festival on the original dates at the end of July.

The event, which is set to feature Nile Rodgers as one of the main headliners, will now take place between September 24 and 26.

Due to the rescheduling, a number of acts on the original bill have had to pull out, with a new line-up to be announced next week.

A statement from organisers said: “The news you probably all expected is here. Despite our best efforts, we are simply unable to guarantee we can deliver Playground Festival to you safely, as planned at the end of July – so we are pushing back to the September Weekend, the 24th, 25th and 26th, traditionally the last party of summer. And what a party we have in store for you.

“Like so many other events, we have been working frantically behind the scenes to try and stage our beloved festival on the dates we announced, but we are buzzing to bring you an even bigger, better festival to round off the summer in style.

“We don’t know what level Scotland or Glasgow will be in at the end of July and we can’t risk being unable to stage the festival you deserve, to the highest level of safety, professionalism, organisation and of course, Good Times. We want you to be happy but more importantly, we need you to be safe. That’s why this is the only option for us.

“Disappointingly, not all of our original line-up are able to make the new dates. The vast majority can and will, but in a few cases, we have secured replacements. However, rest assured, we feel our new line-up is even better than its predecessor with some great new additions. In fact, this is the best line-up we have ever pulled together.”

All tickets purchased for the festival will remain valid for the new dates of September 24-26.

For those who can’t make the new dates, refunds will be available at the point of purchase.

Playground is the latest Glasgow festival to move dates due to the pandemic. TRNSMT shifted back from July to September, while Summer Nights at the city’s Kelvingrove Park was postponed until 2022.
