Galway Arts Festival announces dates for rescheduled Big Top concerts

Galway Daily news Nightclubs and indoor music returning in new reopening plan

Galway International Arts Festival has announced today the rescheduled dates for the Heineken Big Top concerts for next year’s festival.

The 2020 Galway International Arts Festival has been one of the festival season victims of the ongoing public restrictions in place for the Covid-19.

The summer festival, which was due to run for two weeks in July was cancelled at the start of May due to the ban on mass gatherings.

In its place a modified programme of events is in the works for the Autumn, but the Big Top concerts will not be a part of it.

They have all been pushed back to the 2021 arts festival, with the dates for each concert now announced by the festival organisers.

The original tickets which people purchased for their concerts remain valid, and the festival will be getting in touch with ticket holders this week.
