Louder Than Life, Aftershock, And Inkcarceration Festivals Will Now Require Proof Of Vaccination Or Negative COVID-19 Tests

Danny Wimmer Presents has announced that the upcoming Louder Than Life, Aftershock, and Inkcarceration festivals will now require attendees to be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test to gain entry into the events. Wimmer commented:

“We are at an unprecedented crossroads with uncertainty about whether or not our festivals will happen this Fall. It is not my nature to idly sit back and let others decide our fate. Instead, I am going to do everything in my power to ensure that our festivals happen, even if that means enacting policies that some people may not agree with. But before you react negatively to our policy, please consider this. What I see is that the fans feel the world needs music festivals now more than ever. We need to bring people back together to heal from the past 18 months. We need to get the people and artists whose livelihoods depend on live events back to work. I am confident that these requirements are what is needed to guarantee that we have fun and safe festivals this Fall.”

Independent Metal Festivals Join Forces For Virtual “European Metal Festival Alliance” Event

13 different independent metal festivals have joined forces to create the “European Metal Festival Alliance.” The festivals will be hosting a virtual event on August 7-9 featuring exclusive performances, interviews, and more.

The following statement was issued:

“🤘🏻 THE EUROPEAN METAL FESTIVAL ALLIANCE! 🤘🏻

Summer 2020 is a very different landscape from the usual event-packed few months, so to maintain a sense of community, 13 of the best independent metal festivals in Europe has joined forces to create a unique online event for both bands and fans!

The European Metal Festival Alliance is a joint venture between Alcatraz (Belgium), ARTmania (Romania), Bloodstock (UK), Brutal Assault (Czech Republic), Dynamo (Netherlands), Into The Grave (Netherlands), Leyendas Del Rock (Spain), Metal Days (Slovenia), Midgardsblot (Norway), Motocultor (France), Party.San (Germany), Resurrection (Spain) and Summer Breeze (Germany).

A special streaming event will take place across the weekend of 7th-9th August offering exclusive live performances from a selection of yet-to-be-revealed artists chosen by each festival, as well as exclusive new interviews, and more. As a fundraiser for the beleaguered independent festival sector, who don’t have the backing of big corporate money for their survival, viewers will be asked for €6.66 for a ‘full festival pass.’ In return, they will enjoy three days of live performances by 35+ metal bands at various locations around the world and other exclusive content, from the comfort of their own home. Virtual ticket purchasers will also get a discount on a European Metal Festival Alliance ‘Rebooting for 2021’ T-shirt.

Meanwhile, to get warmed up, the newly launched destination website at ➡️ www.MetalFestivalAlliance.com will host a wide range of previous footage from this festival co-operative, including many sets not previously broadcast, throughout the summer.

❗ The line-up & schedule for the streaming event will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets will be available on Friday July 10th, 2020 from www.MetalFestivalAlliance.com
