It is due to be held at Raehills Meadows near St Anns from June 10-13, with Galloway Community Group waiting to see what the next few month’s will bring as the roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccine continues.

A spokesperson said: “At this time we do not know if the festival will be able to go ahead, however, we are in the fortunate position of being able to wait a couple more months before having to make a decision, as Eden Festival is a lot smaller than the likes of Glastonbury.

“With a first of its kind rollout of vaccines taking place across Scotland and the UK we are not willing to give up hope just yet, however, we have to be realistic and have the best solutions in place.

"Please be assured that your safety is of utmost importance and we will not go ahead if it is unsafe to do so.

"In the event of cancellation, all ticket holders will be able to roll their tickets over to 2022 or get a full refund.

"We have a fantastic line up to announce shortly; we think it may be our best yet! Should we have to postpone the event till 2022 we will also look to roll over every act.

"We've been working through plans (for what seems like far too long now) on how we can improve every aspect of Eden Festival to make the next one the best one yet, by a Gallovidian mile.“Keep 'em crossed and stay safe - we have unfinished business back in the Great Garden.”
