The 90's Revival was due to take place at the West Mid Showground in Shrewsbury on June 4 and 5 this year, having been delayed from last summer already.

However, Shrewsbury DJs Dave Prince and Paul Bennett have decided to postpone again until June 2022 due to the current coronavirus situation.

The pair said in a joint statement: “With much regret, we must now announce that this year’s The 90’s Revival concerts will now have to be postponed. After looking at numerous plans to make this year’s event work and keep everyone safe, it has become clear to us that by doing this we simply would not be able to give everyone the experience that The 90’s Revival is all about.

“As with last year, everyone that has bought tickets will automatically be rolled over to the new dates of Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4, 2022. We would really appreciate your support if you can keep hold of your tickets for next year, but if you feel that you need a refund, then please request this no later than 12pm on Monday, February 1 by contacting After this date unfortunately we will not be able to offer any further refunds.

“We would like to thank you for your continued support and let’s look forward to an amazing 2022.”

The 90’s Revival has been hosting online DJ sets since the pandemic began, attracting up to 50,000 views per show.

Earlier this month they launched a new series of lockdown live sets to raise money for a host of charities. The Saturday evening shows are streamed on Facebook every week, and are planned to continue until at least April. To find out more visit their Facebook page @The90sRevival.
