Slowthai has been forced to postpone Happyland Festival

Slowthai has postponed the first edition of his Happyland festival due to concerns around it not meeting his standards.

The event was supposed to take place across one day in Northampton, the rapper’s hometown.

Acts such as Pa Salieu, Shygirl and Greentea Peng were billed to play alongside Slowthai. 15,000 people were set to attend.

Yesterday, he issued a statement that read: ““I’m taking the decision to postpone the inaugural Happyland festival due to take place in September 2021.

“Unfortunately due to things out of my control, we couldn’t put the show together at the standard that I wanted for the first ever event, so I feel the right thing to do is to put the dream of Happyland on pause for now and look to next year.

“The idea of 15,000 people coming together under the Happyland banner filled my heart and gave me so much energy, and I want to thank all of you who got your tickets to this happy place, I’ll see you soon.

A new date is yet to be announced.
