Without the sentinel compass point of ALS, we are finding ourselves suddenly and startlingly at the point where we normally embark to the bucolic pastures of The Manor – busy creating magic from the scattered dust of our dreams.⁠⠀

So, while we have accepted our collective 2020 fate as best we can, we still didn’t want to let the moment pass, and not to mark the weekend that ALS 2020 was due to erupt without some celebration, and some iteration of the programme we had drawn together over the past 12 months.⁠⠀

It Just Wasn’t Meant To Be ALS 2020 Online presents live performances from your favourite corners of Killyon Manor and beyond from:⁠⠀

Line Up

Jape | Anna Mieke X Glasshouse | Rozi Plain (UK) | The Bonk | Fazer Fazer Fazer (DE) | Rachael Lavelle | Jonny Dillon (solo guitar) | Young Hearts Run Free & More.
