Dear Rudolstadt Lovers,
We all had the very strong desire to come together again in July. But looking at the current situation is is obvious that the health and financial risks are still too high. We therefore decided to cancel this year’s festival.
Announcing this decision our hearts feel heavy, but the head knows it is the right thing to do. Even a festival in miniature with a responsible hygiene concept cannot be planned reliably under these circumstances.
At the beginning of the year we announced to keep several balls in the air as long as possible, because we were determined to preserve the chance for a festival 2021. But meanwhile we cannot delay important logistic decisions any longer. Everyone involved in the festival needs to have certainty and of course we also want to give clear information to you in time.
What uplifts our minds in all this mess: The way is open for new ideas. We can now focus on summer 2022 and develop a fresh program, which is living up to the festival’s spirit and claim. We would like to set current accents rather than moving the 2020 program a second time.
Despite all disappointment we remain confident and hope you share our anticipation for a bright festival from 7 – 10 July 2022!
We are going to start pre-sale in December. Around this time we will also present the first confirmed artists to you.
Can’t wait to see you in Rudolstadt again and wish you all the best until then!
