2020 edition canceled

Dear 18hrs fans,
Today, April 21st, the Dutch government announced an extension of its measures concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. All events scheduled to take place until August 31st are forced to be postponed. So, with a heavy heart we have to inform you that 18hrs Festival 2020 is cancelled.

This news was to be expected, but obviously hit our team hard. Our team members work really hard year-round to create special experiences for you and we hoped with all our hearts that we could welcome you this year. However, the health and safety of you, our visitors, artists, staff and love ones is what matters the most and therefore we understand this decision.

Unfortunately, moving 18HRS Festival to a new date this summer is not an option. We would therefore like to invite you to 18HRS Festival 2021. Anyone who has bought a ticket for 18HRS 2020 (via Eventix and Ticketswap) can keep his or her ticket for next year. You already have a festival ticket for 2021 and we have a welcome support to overcome this difficult period.

You have a festival ticket in your pocket, we very much support to overcome this difficult period. Support that we can use very well, so that we can celebrate our 10th anniversary together next year. For ticket buyers there will also be a refund option. But we ask you to consider to keep your ticket for 2021 and support us and all the people we work with. So that we can celebrate our birthday twice as hard next year. All ticket buyers will be contacted personally by email in 2 weeks.

Much love,
Team 18hrs Festival
