Notes

  1. Attendance at Detonation 3 was capped at 500.
  2. Detonation 6 was originally scheduled from Monday, 25th to Sunday, 31st May, but was rescheduled to run from Monday, 31st August to Sunday, 6th September, because of concerns over the COVID-19 crisis. It was later cancelled entirely.
  3. Detonation's 2021 event was their seventh year but, as they cancelled their 2020 event and this one happened out of their usual season, they called it Detonation 6.5 and returned to regular numbering in 2022.
