The organisers of Electric Castle announced that this year's EC8 event, will be postponed until 2022, saying that there's “no real scenario that would allow the festival to happen in 2021”.
The dates have been moved to 13-17 July, 2022, and that they have managed to much anticipated headliners, Twenty One Pilots, Gorrilaz an Deftones.
The announcement reads:
We’re sad to announce
Electric Castle will not take place this year
Due to recent event rules and restrictions announced by authorities for the upcoming period, there is no real scenario that would allow the festival to happen in 2021.
It takes a whole year of tremendous effort to plan every detail of an event with such magnitude. Moreover, the pandemic situation fluctuates, causing rescheduling of artists' tours all over Europe.
EC8 WILL BE POSTPONED for 13-17 July, 2022.
However, we’ve managed to reconfirm our headliners for 2022 – Twenty One Pilots, Gorillaz & Deftones and our team is working hard, as always, to bring you the best possible line-up.
We can hardly imagine how fantastic it will be to reopen the gates and meet you all after such a long and painful absence.
All tickets are valid for next year and refund options will be available. More info coming soon.
There.. it’s official and now it feels even worse.
We simply cannot let another year just pass by and we will continue working together with the authorities to find solutions to have events this summer.
From fans to everyone working in the industry, we all hope concerts and festivals will be back into our lives.
Until then, stay safe everyone. We miss each and every one of you.
There has not yet been any announcements regarding the re-scheduling of other events, such as Untold Festival, TIFF and Jazz in the Park, which at this time, are still scheduled to take place this year.
