Call of the Wild reschedules to September, minor line-up changes and free NHS tickets

Further to previous statements, Call of the Wild are sad to announce the postponement of the festival until 18th to 20th September 2020. The rescheduled CotW festival will operate on the same basis: i.e. three stages, camping, glamping, VIP, etc.

The organisers comment:

It is clear the current pandemic will have the country in turmoil for quite a while, ruling out any possibility of keeping to our May schedule, particularly the restrictions on mass gatherings that have been brought in and may still be in force come May, as well as all the disruptions to normal life that we’re likely to see. After listening to all the advice from central government and the Safety Advisory Group, the general feeling is that come September, we envisage that we will be back to a normal footing.

So, in the last few weeks, we’ve acted quickly to secure the venue, all our suppliers and secured a good majority of our existing line-up. Due to other touring commitments, we have had to swap Phil Campbell & the Bastard Sons to Friday and Massive Wagons to Sunday. We are incredibly disappointed to have lost Michael Monroe on the Saturday, but we are working very hard to bring you an equally great Saturday headline act.

We are hopeful that most of our ticket buyers will be able to join us in September, but appreciate that customers might have existing plans or commitments.

Ticketing partner Gigantic will therefore be emailing all purchasers with the following options:

  • Tickets can be transferred automatically to the new date.
  • Tickets can be transferred to the 2021 event.
  • Full refunds can be arranged.

It will also be possible to swap day tickets, or claim a full refund.

Please respond to Gigantic’s email or, if preferred, contact them at .

Anyone who purchased earlybird tickets directly from us at the festival last year should contact and we will sort things out, on the same terms as above.

Showing thanks to all the hard work undertaken by the NHS during this trying time, the festival have allocated 500 free weekend tickets to all NHS workers.

These can be applied for by contacting with proof/ID. However, if you already have purchased a ticket for this year we will allocate you free weekend tickets for 2021. Deadline for applications 30th April 2020.

Call of the Wild’s second cycle now takes place between 18th-20th September 2020 at the Lincolnshire Showground, Grange-de-Lings, Lincoln LN2 2NA: a fantastic 3 days of fun with top-flight live music and full festival experience.

Tickets can be purchased here.
