Terminal V, a one-night event billed as the first festival of the season, has confirmed it will postponed from Saturday 11th April to instead take place on Halloween, Saturday 31st October.
The festival will remain at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh and organisers have promised to “take the Easter line-up” and “add even more acts and stages to curate one of the biggest house & techno line-ups the UK has ever seen”.
The news comes after both the Scottish and UK Governments advised a ban on mass public gatherings. All tickets will remain valid for the new date and existing ticket holders will be given a 50% discount on tickets to the Terminal V All Nighter events this August.
The full statement reads: “We are absolutely devastated to announce that Terminal V Festival | New Horizon 2020 will be rescheduled due to the world crippling coronavirus. The new date is now confirmed for Saturday October 31st 2020 – Halloween.
“After almost 12 months of intense planning we never could have imagined this event not taking place. A situation out-with our control has occurred, this worldwide pandemic is something that our generation has never seen before and hopefully we never see again.
“This pandemic is something affecting the welfare and health of all our loved ones and everyone we know, we need to be responsible and act accordingly during this difficult time.
The overwhelming love on social media has been absolutely incredible. We are eternally thankful for all your support…from you our massive Terminal V family.
“We are proud of all that we’ve created together in Scotland over the last 3 years. We are all in this together with all the other festivals, artists and ravers around the world. We stand united and look to you for your continued support in these difficult times.
“We will bounce back, bigger and better than ever before for October, taking the Easter lineup, adding even more acts and stages, to curate one of the biggest house & techno line-ups the UK has ever seen. A massive thank you to all artists, agencies and management working with us on the new date.
“All Easter tickets are automatically transferred to this new October date.
For everyone with travel plans booked, most airlines and hotels are offering transfers free of charge, please contact them now to arrange.
“We would also like to offer all ticket holders a 50% credit to one of our three Terminal V All Nighter events of your choice, launching this August. A secret ticket link will be sent out soon via email.”
