For each of the last 7 years we’ve built this alternate world where you can be yourself, carefree and safe.
The energy we get from you when you explore and discover what EC has to offer is one of the reasons that drives us to make Electric Castle in the first place. Even now, we relentlessly tried to find a scenario that would allow us to meet again at the Castle. It’s in our nature and we owed it to everyone who’s put their trust in us.
Creating the festival takes a full year of continuous hard work and two months for actually building it. Right now, we were supposed to be in Bontida, building the EC world. However, there is a lot of uncertainty regarding health and safety measures, travel restrictions and other details that need to be planned in advance so we can deliver the expected experience. Even the authorities couldn't provide us with specific details or plans regarding the festival's situation.
Your health and safety have always been our top priority and, unfortunately, at this point, there is no ideal scenario or bulletproof safe way to hold the festival.
With all this in mind and a heavy heart, we decided the safest way to go ahead is to postpone EC8 for 14-18 July, 2021.
Needless to say, this is a major hit and disappointment not only for all fans, but also for the thousands of people involved in making the festival happen. A multi-layered industry made up of production professionals, technicians, artists, architects, vendors, local communities and volunteers will be deeply affected.
So... what now? First of all, your tickets are safe. All purchased tickets are valid for the new dates, in 2021. If you can’t make it, there will be different options available. We’ll get back to you with all the details in a few days, so please bear with us. Secondly, we plan to reconfirm all the announced artists for 2021 and start moving things around. We’ll announce details as soon as we have updates.
No worries, we will see each other at the castle again. Only this time we have to wait a little longer. Keep an eye on the page for details, take care and stay safe!
