Outdoor concert series Forest Live, which includes dates in Thetford Forest, has been postponed until 2022 due to coronavirus.
The event is organised by Forestry England and each year sees chart-topping acts perform in woodland locations across the UK.
It has now been cancelled for a second year in a row as the concerts were due to take place before June 21, when all social distancing restrictions are set to be lifted under the government's roadmap if various criteria are met.
Fortunately, all the headline acts will return in 2022 and at the High Lodge in Thetford Forest this will be Rag'n'Bone Man on June 16, Keane on June 17, Madness on June 18 and Jess Glynne on June 19.
Forestry England said: “The government’s roadmap out of lockdown has made it clear that we cannot hold our Forest Live concerts this summer.
"We are extremely disappointed, but this is the best way to keep our valued customers safe, as well as the staff, volunteers, contractors and artists that make Forest Live possible.
"We look forward to welcoming Forest Live fans to see their favourite artists performing in the nation’s forests next year.
"We are delighted to confirm that all Forest Live 2021 headline acts have been able to reschedule all their performances and will be joining us in June 2022.
