The festival that launched in July and was due to close in August, went so well that it was extended to allow people to enjoy the live music and buzzing atmosphere into September.

Over 11 weeks, more than 30,000 festival goers attended a line up of 100 plus events.And on Friday, September 25, the Symphonic Ibiza Orchestra takes the stage from 5 to 11pm, showcasing some of the biggest Ibiza anthems in history.

The high tempo beats combined with a thrilling live orchestra, will have everyone up.

On Saturday, September 26, Sam Divine and Shapeshifters perform their pure, unadulterated house music from 5pm to 11pm.

After selling out at the start of August, they will again liven up the country setting as only they can do.

Finally, on Sunday, September 27, Steve Harley and band plus support will rock from noon to 5pm.

The original charismatic Cockney Rebel comes to Gisburne Park with his four-piece acoustic band.

This Steve Harley live show will be packed with hits such as Judy Teen, Mr Raffles, Here Comes The Sun, Mr Soft and Sebastian as well as the world-wide hit and UK chart-topper Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me).

Steve Harley said: “I am really looking forward to playing at Gisburne Park. The setting looks stunning and the festival is very well organised to ensure the fans have a great, safe time.

“It is so good to be back playing to live audiences again. I can’t wait for Sunday afternoon to come!”

With all major UK festivals and events cancelled this summer, the Gisburne Park Pop-Up is reimagining the outdoor entertainment experience while observing the latest social distancing guidelines.

Guests can book individual hexagonal pitches, each large enough for a social bubble of six and spaced 2.6m apart.

Designated bar-to-pitch service brings food and single serve drinks directly to the customer, eliminating the need to queue, while a one-way system ensures festival-goers can make their way around the ten-acre site with a minimum two metres physical distance between other guests.

For those who stay the entire weekend, luxury five-metre wide bell tents are available to book. Each comes with electricity, an outdoor fire pit and access to on-site private showers.Guests can also choose to stay at Ribblesdale Park, in luxury lodges and cosy cottages.

Tickets are available from https://www.gisburneparkpopup.com/ and start from £45 per adult. Boutique glamping starts from £60 per tent per night.
