Rock im Park and many other big festivals will not take place in 2021. The organizers are reacting to the ongoing corona situation.

Festival lovers will also have to endure in 2021: The twin festivals Rock im Park and Rock am Ring were canceled, as last year, due to the corona situation. The organizers announced this on Wednesday (March 10th) on the official website. The cancellation for 2021 had to be announced "with a heavy heart", but "against the background of the still uncertain infection situation and the extension of the 'epidemic situation with national scope' by the Bundestag until at least the end of June, festivals of this size are simply not going to be of this magnitude in the near future feasible, "says the statement.

That happens to the tickets

In addition, a date has been announced on which the two festivals will take place in 2022. From June 3rd to 5th, they want to return to the Eifel and Nuremberg "as strong as ever". In a few weeks, an online platform will go live, with which ticket holders, like last year, can easily exchange their tickets for tickets for 2022. After an exchange phase, the ticket price will be refunded if requested. The processing will take some time, it says in the statement. At the same time, confirmed bands are to be announced in order to make it easier for ticket holders to decide on an option.

The two sold out twin festivals Rock im Park and Rock am Ring were canceled in mid-April 2020. At the scheduled time of the event on the first weekend in June, almost 175,000 fans were expected. Rock am Ring would have celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2020, Rock im Park would have taken place for the 25th time. The next edition was planned for June 11-13, 2021.

These festivals do not take place either

The two sister festivals Hurricane and Southside have also announced their cancellation for 2021. "The ongoing uncertainty regarding the political framework and financial support, the delay in the vaccination rollout and the new virus mutants have really kicked our asses," said a statement. In 2022, the festivals are scheduled to take place from June 17th to 19th. All questions about ticket refunds are answered in an FAQ.
