Jupiter Rising 2020 Postponed

We waited, we’ve prayed, we danced to the rain gods, but with great sadness we have to postpone Jupiter Rising festival until Summer 2021.

The new dates for Jupiter Rising are 28 – 30 August 2021. We look forward to seeing you there. We have seen how quickly social distancing can be cast aside, or forgotten, and it feels irresponsible to host a social event whilst the virus is still in Scotland. Putting anyone at risk is just not conscionable. Our sincerest thanks go to every single artist and collaborator and we are working out budgets to pay cancellation fees. Our special thanks to our Scottish collaborators and artists – we will be dancing with you again soon.

If you are happy to hold onto your tickets for next summer, there is nothing you need to do. Your ticket will remain valid for the festival in 2021. If you would prefer a refund, our ticket partners will issue refunds promptly upon request.

Just now, we are focussing our energy on our Rising Residency, a collaboration between OH141 and Jupiter Artland to offer womxn, people of colour, LGBTQ+ or those underrepresented in the art world a funded residency to develop new work. We are also making plans for the return of the festival in 2021, bringing live art, music, performance, cinema, artist moving-image, dance and a great deal of anarchic joy to the landscape of Jupiter. Our priority is to ensure your refund is processed as quickly as possible and we will make sure refunds happen within a maximum of 14 days. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch using your booking reference and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

We can’t wait to have live music and art back in our lives. If you can help support artists, technicians and independent labels and venues at this time, please do so by making a purchase or donation at the following link: https://buymusic.club/list/jupiterrising-jupiter-rising-an-incomplete-list

We wish everyone health and happiness and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Jupiter Rising team
