ALSO festival is still going ahead at Compton Verney this month - here is the line-up
Now celebrating its seventh year, tickets for the event - described by the organisers as the 'small festival with big ideas' - are now on sale
The coronavirus may have led to the cancellation of many events - but the ALSO festival will be returning to Compton Verney on August 28-30.
Now celebrating its seventh year, tickets for the event - described by the organisers as the 'small festival with big ideas' - are now on sale.
Organisers said: "This summer we present the world’s first socially-distanced, digitally-blended festival with our theme being ‘a place in the country'.
"We’ll be providing guests with a transformative weekend in nature, to reset, rebalance and to look together at some essential ideas of our time – for how we might live beyond summer.
"The event will be simultaneously live-streamed for those not able to attend in person."
The event will feature live music, speakers, comedy and food with 'sustainability are its core'.
