Summer 2020 may be a wash out when it comes to events. But plenty of the festivals and gigs we’d been looking forward to this year have been rescheduled to 2021.
We take a look at how you can fill your diary for next year with a host of comedy, music and entertainment.

6. Kubix, July 2 & 3
Like all large-scale events, Kubix Festival had to cancel this year’s weekend of live music in Herrington Country Park in line with restrictions in place to limit the spread of Covid-19, but it’s managed to re-book many of its household name line-up for new dates on July 2 and 3, 2021. Acts announced so far include Vengaboys, 2 Unlimited, Ultra Nate, N-Trance and Culture Beat on the Friday and Levellers, Stiff Little Fingers, The Futureheads, New Model Army and The Selecter on the Saturday.
