It seems like forever since we made the call back in March to postpone Vantastival 2020, just two days before the whole country went into lockdown. At the time, like everyone, we were hopeful that Covid 19 would pass and we would be able to bring everyone together for a delayed festival in mid-September. Alas it wasn’t to be! At this moment in time no one really knows which way the pandemic is going to go over the next few months or years. We have no signpost for the future of mass gatherings. Many are hopeful that we’ll all be able to meet in celebration once more next summer, while some of us are more cautious in our outlook. At Vantastival HQ we continue to watch the development of the virus and its effects. While we like to be optimistic, we don’t wish to sell tickets for a 2021 event with no guarantee that it will be possible. As a family, we have had time to reflect on the business that we spent 11 years building and passionately working on together. What a ride! We have made such amazing friends over the past decade through Vantastival and are so eternally grateful to all of you for the support you have shown us in this most difficult of years.
So, onwards and upwards from 2020! We are keeping busy and using this time to work on other projects and ideas that have been brewing for quite a while but never had the opportunity to be developed. We hope to be able to reveal some of these to you in due course. We don’t know if we’ll see you all in a field in 2021, but whether it’s next year or the year after, at some point the craic will be back!
Until then take care, stay safe and thank you for your continued support xxx
