Askern Music Festival is set to be back for 2021.

Askern Music Festival, which was scrapped last summer because of the pandemic, will take place on July 10, organisers have said.

The festival at Askern Cricket Club will feature performances from Brit rockers Feeder, indie favourites The Coral and dance rockers Republica, who were all due to appear on last year’s bill.

A spokesman said: “Who has seen the PM’s announcement? All restrictions lifted by June 21. That can mean only one thing…Askern 2021!
