Alongside the return of Community, Finsbury Park will also host massive headline shows from Sam Fender (supported by Fontaines D.C.Declan McKennaBeabadoobee and Goat Girl) and George Ezra, who will play alongside Blossoms and Holly Humberstone, with more to be announced.

Elsewhere, the UK’s music festival industry has warned of a “perfect storm,” created by a live entertainment supply chain crisis, workforce shortages and the effects of Brexit, is likely to impact this summer’s events season.

The Association Of Independent Festivals (AIF) CEO Paul Reed is calling on the government for further support, with suggested measures including continued VAT relief on tickets beyond the end of March, a backed loan scheme for suppliers and to remove tax incentives to use certain biofuels to allow for use of greener fuels at festivals.
