The music event was due to take place in the Capital’s Princes St Gardens but organisers have now said it won’t be viable to host the event this year as some shows were scheduled to take place before August 9 when Covid restrictions are due to be eased.
As a result all the shows will now take place next year in August 2022.
Performers including Tom Jones, Lionel Richie, Simple Minds, Travis and Michael Kiwanuka are lined up to play at the bash in Edinburgh’s Princes St Gardens – they will now be playing revised dates next year
Original tickets will remain valid for the new, rescheduled dates where refunds have not been issued.
Organisers said in a statement: “Unfortunately, 2021’s edition of Edinburgh Summer Sessions was set to begin before all legal Covid restrictions are due to be lifted in Scotland on 9th August, therefore we have had to take the difficult decision to reschedule all shows for August 2022*.”
“We have been working hard alongside artist teams to schedule new dates and are already looking forward to returning to Princes Street Gardens next summer, for what is sure to be an incredible festival.”
They added: “We are working hard to make new arrangements for the DMA’S show in Princes Street Gardens. Please hold on to your tickets and we’ll be in touch with an update as soon as possible.”
“Original tickets remain valid for new dates where refunds have not been issued. Your ticket agent will be in touch with more information so look out for this email if you can no longer attend.”
