Roadburn Festival Postponed To 2021

The Roadburn Festival has officially been rescheduled after previously being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. That event will now take place on April 15-18, 2021 in Tilburg, NET.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“Dear Roadburners,

Firstly, we want to apologise for the lack of communication – we know you have questions and we’re doing our absolute best to get answers to you as soon as possible.

The next edition of Roadburn will take place 15-18 April, 2021. Tickets purchased for the 2020 edition will remain valid – you do not need to do anything at this time, just hold on to those tickets and show up next April. Our aim is to preserve as much of the line up as possible – we will be talking to bands over the coming weeks to re-confirm bookings, but things are looking positive on that front.

Tickets for the campsite and the night busses (i.e anything you bought direct, via 013.nl, Roadburn.com and Ticketmaster.nl) are also automatically transferred to April 2021 too.

We request just a little bit more patience for more detailed information. We know uncertainty is stressful, so we are working diligently to get you accurate information as quickly as possible, however, Roadburn is part of a complex industry that is in turmoil at the moment.

We are part of a huge group of organisations, venues and others who are awaiting guidance from the Dutch government as to how to proceed. These circumstances are unprecedented in a legal, financial and logistical sense for the whole entertainment industry.

As we said previously, this has been a heartbreaking decision for us, taken in the middle of some of the most uncertain times that the live music industry has seen. What we have put in place here is designed to protect and preserve Roadburn as a festival and ensure our ability to function going forward.

Whilst the rush to buy tickets on the day they go on sale has become a rite of passage for many, knowing that you’ve already got next year’s ticket in your pocket is hopefully a small silver lining!

– Walter, Becky, Peter van der Aalst (interim CEO 013 venue) & the whole Roadburn team.”

2020 Roadburn Festival Postponed

The 2020 Roadburn Festival has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. That event was originally set to take place on April 16-19 in Tilburg, NET.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“Due to the recent announcements from the Dutch government that all events in the Netherlands are forbidden until June, it will be impossible for us to hold Roadburn in April as planned. We know that many of you had already guessed that this would be the case, and we appreciate your patience as we have navigated the necessary processes that come along with organising an event as complex as Roadburn.

The current situation is having an enormous impact already – on the venues we rely on, the bands that we love and the events that we have planned for. Until we come out the other side of this, it will be impossible to do a full assessment of the damage caused to the live music industry.

We ask for just a little bit more patience from you whilst we continue to work to bring you the most clear, concise and useful information relating to the postponement of Roadburn 2020. We know you have a lot of questions and we will do our best to answer in the coming days.

With much love, sadness and disbelief…

-Walter, Becky & the whole Roadburn team.”
