Towersy Festival to end after 60th anniversary

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Towersy Festival, which is still run by the same family who started it five years before Glastonbury (now grandchildren of the founders run it).

Sadly, they’ve announced this year’s 60th will be the last one for the roots and folk festival.

The blame is firmly on Covid: “We have worked incredibly hard over the last few years to try to bring Towersey back to financial stability,” the co-directors said, “The pandemic wiped all our back up and changed the face of festivals across the industry.”

“Coming back from this and the economic challenges we’ve all felt since then has been all but impossible. Without investment partnerships or a fundamental change to the character of the festival, we have concluded that we will have to bow out after this year.”
