“We want you to know that, despite the complicated and unprecedented situation, we have not forgotten about YOU because the festival is made for YOU. Thus, we want to give you first-hand information about how things are. The authorities do not provide answers to the question of what happens to summer festivals in order to better manage our relationship with you and all partners and suppliers involved with Rockstadt Extreme Fest,” said the organizers in an official statement.
The festivals in Europe have rescheduled this year’s edition for the next year, being pushed to do so due to the decision of the authorities, the cancellations of confirmed bands tours, the uncertainty about the evolution of the pandemic, the risk of exposing participants to an environment favorable to the spread of the virus and care for the health of the participants.
“We have worked for the 2020 edition to have its best line-up so far before the one in 2019, permanently having YOU on or minds and the whole human resources that make possible such a festival. There are people you don’t see but who are essential: our employees, contract workers, stage technical team, sound, lights, pyrotechnics, security, administrative team, volunteers, firefighters, ambulance and first aid, cleaning and sanitation, logistics and transport, hospitality and accommodation, purchases, bartenders and those from whom you buy food, the photo and video team, press collaborators, the marketing and advertising team. Plus other external collaborators for various services. All of them together with YOU make it possible for Rockstadt Extreme Fest to exist in Romania for 8 years already, with international recognition,” added the organizers.
Taking all these into account, they decided the best option was to reschedule the festival for 2021, between August 5 and 8 and they hope that this information will help all the people that have already bought tickets to reconfigure their accommodation, transportation, holidays and your general agenda for that timeframe.
Moreover, all the bands that were already confirmed are open to rescheduling and we will come back with clear information on it. In addition, we will add other important bands in the line-up.
The festival passes that have already been bought will be valid for 2021 and, in addition, the ticket holders will receive a discount of 6 Euros which can be spent at the festival. Those who cannot come to the new edition have the possibility of selling their tickets or change the pass with a voucher that you can use until 30.09.2021 for services and products offered by the Asociatia Culturala REF as a promoter.
“Although the option to reimburse the pass is not mandatory for us, we can do this if you cannot participate but only after the 2021 festival ends, until the 01st of September, 2021 at the latest. We extend the possibility of purchasing the EUR 82 pass with one more week, until the 1st of June, 2020. These passes will also benefit the discount we mentioned for the festival next year,” it is said in the statement.
Starting Monday, the 1st of June, 2020, one can buy passes for Rockstadt Extreme Fest 2021 as follows:
– The first 1,500 passes, but not later than 15.10.2020 – EUR 84
