|Summertime. Festival time. Enjoying the unique festival atmosphere together with your friends. Dancing together. Singing together. Experiencing the most amazing concerts together. And that very togetherness is a problem. It is expected that the current measures can be scaled back by summertime. However, according to experts, it still would not be a good idea to bring large crowds together – with visitors from Belgium and often far beyond our borders – at our festivals.
The fact that we will have to go without Graspop Metal Meeting this summer is a big disappointment. For the fans who have been sharing the anticipation and excitement for months. But also, for our staff, suppliers, crew, artists, volunteers, and the local residents. An entire sector has been brought to its knees. Via trade associations and professional federations, specific support measures will be requested from the public authorities. We stand behind all such initiatives. We are currently exploring various options together with our ticket partner. Once the arrangement for ticket buyers has been finalised, information will be provided. First and foremost, to the ticket buyers themselves. Please keep in mind that this may take a few days still.
