Scotland Calling, the annual one-day punk gathering held in Glasgow, has been cancelled for 2020 and rescheduled for next year.

The event at the O2 Academy, originally meant to be held on 26 April this year, was rescheduled until August due to the covid-19 crisis.

But continuing uncertainty caused by the outbreak means the organisers have pulled the plug on that date too, and rearranged the event until April 2021.

The organisers posted an update on social media which said: “Sorry to announce due to Covid-19 we can confirm Scotland Calling, due to take place on Saturday, 22nd August 2020, will now be rescheduled to Saturday, April 24th 2021.

“Due to band availability we have had to make a couple of changes to the line-up, which we hope you’ll like.

“Stay safe, stay healthy……by the way, tickets remain valid for the new date…please keep them if you can and we look forward to seeing you next year.”

The one-dayer will still be headlined by Cockney Rejects, but Skids and Subhumans are unable to make the new date, and have been replaced by The Dickies and UK Subs, pictured top, who were part of the original April 2020 line-up.

The rest of the line-up is The Rezillos, Angelic Upstarts, Steve Ignorant and a full band performing Crass songs, Gimp Fist, Dirt Box Disco, Control, The De Rellas and 4 Past Midnight.

Tickets bought for either 2020 date remain valid for 2021, and tickets for the new date are on sale now, priced £29 plus the usual booking fees, from www.gigbox.co.uk
