Jonas Blue, Radio One’s Danny Howard and Judge Jules are set to headline the bank holiday weekend at the UK’s first ever social distancing festival, Gisburne Park Pop Up.

Taking place in the Lancashire countryside, Gisburne Park Pop Up has dropped a stellar line up of DJs for the bank holiday weekend (28th – 30th August 2020),  which also includes Eats Everything, Maya Jane Coles and Low Steppa.

Having launched in July 2020, Gisburne Park Pop Up is an eight week festival and has achieved global acclaim as the UK’s first social distancing festival with big name DJs, live entertainment and luxury glamping.

 Festival-goers can purchase day passes or weekend glamping tickets. Each event sees up to 480 festival goers dance under the stars in their own individual hexagonal pitch, each large enough for a social bubble of six and spaced 2.6m apart.

Drinks and food are delivered by waiters to the hexagonal pitches, eliminating the need for queuing. A one-way system ensures guests can make their way around the 10-acre site with a minimum of 2m physical distance between themselves and other guests.

For guests wishing to stay the entire weekend, onsite luxury five-metre wide bell tents are available to book. Each comes with electricity, an outdoor fire pit and access to on-site private showers. Guests can also choose to stay at the north of England’s leading hot tub holiday destination, Ribblesdale Park, which is also nestled within the Gisburne Park Estate and features luxury lodges and cosy cottages.

Robyn Isherwood, Event Director of Gisburne Park Pop-up Festival, said: “The events so far have been a huge success and we’re grateful to all the guests that joined us, and all of the staff that worked so hard to create a safe environment for everyone to enjoy themselves. All of our guests have been fantastic, sticking to the social distancing guidelines we’ve put in place, and we’ve seen people really embracing the festival atmosphere in this new way from the comfort of their hexagon”.
