Dates for Rhythms of the World 2015 have been confirmed by organisers of the music festival.
The two-day Hertfordshire-based world music and arts extravaganza will return to the grounds of Hitchin Priory on Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21.
The 2014 festival returned to the Hitchin venue in August and more than 20,000 enjoyed the weekend, the music and the fun.
Next year’s festival will be held over the midsummer weekend.
Amy Hopkins, chair of the charity, said: “We were determined to build on the success of the 2014 festival and it’s great to be able to announce the 2015 date now.
“We will all be working hard for the next few months to bring news of artists, ticket prices and other developments as soon as we can and we hope we can encourage lots of sponsors, advertisers, traders and volunteers to get involved early.”
Thierry Viatge, general manager of Hitchin Priory, said: “We’re already making plans to welcome Rhythms of the World back to Hitchin Priory and the team are really looking forward to it.
“We’ve also agreed dates for future festivals because the board at Chartridge Venues, which owns Hitchin Priory, are delighted to support such a great community event.”
A tweet from the Rhythms of the World’s official Twitter feed @rotwfestival today (Wednesday) read: “Thanks to everyone who’s already sharing the #rotw2015 date - we appreciate it! 20/21 June! Put it on your calendar now.”
