Despite festivals such as 2000 Tree’s and Boomtown having to cancel their events this summer due to the lack of a government-backed insurance policy, organisers of Lincoln hard rock festival Call of the Wild have reassured gig-goers that they will go ahead as planned.
Talking to director Raz White, he said: “We don’t wanna give people false hope, but we as a team feel 100 per cent confident everything is going to go ahead in July.”
“It’s gonna be one of, if not the first, big open-air festival since lockdown,” White continued. “We just want everyone to come and have a great time.”
The festival was initially scheduled to go ahead in September 2020 but has had to be rescheduled twice due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
