We want to say a massive thank you to every single one of you who has ever attended the festival, and to every artist, performer, speaker and volunteer who we have worked with to create some truly unforgettable moments. See you in another universe. The Citadel team.”
Meanwhile, Lovebox Festival, also run by MAMA, has announced that it will expand to three days in 2020, taking place from 12-14 June 2020.
