There is no easy way to say this, but we have decided that the best thing for the artists, the crowd and for our team, is to postpone the 16th edition of Euroblast Festival to 2021!
We waited as long as we could before making this tough decision, but we feel like it is the only one we could make. Sure, the safety of our supporters and crew is our top priority, but we would be lying if we said that was the only reason. The truth is if the festival would even be allowed to happen this year - it would be with a limited capacity only, making this edition a complete financial disaster. Artist, venue and crew costs would not change. Not to mention we are not even sure if anyone can even travel here in October … it is just all too up in the air right now!
We want to keep on giving you the best vibes and the best Progressive music we can, but under these extraordinary, stressful and scary circumstances, it is just impossible. Since 2008, we've overcome so much diversity and dilemmas, but we always managed to keep our dates with you, the Euroblast Family, but this year it is just not going to happen. We can't imagine going one entire year missing your wild and crazy faces, but it will make our reunion all that much better!
We will reunite September 30th - October 2nd 2021 in Cologne the latest.
Tickets will automatically roll over to next year, so you are automatically onboard for 2021. We will release more detailed information about tickets, refunds and how you can help us in the next days to come and also email all existing ticket holders directly.
We are MEGA gutted about this but also see this as a chance to make something special for you ... and we are also working on a few ideas to bring you a little bit of Euroblast into your homes soon …
Stay Healthy & Stay Strong - Much love!
John, Daniel & the entire Euroblast Team
11 years, 14 festivals and 300+ bands. Euroblast is a center for progressive music from today and tomorrow. Call it Prog, Tech, Death, Post or just - well - music; we like it virtuous, experimental and mind blowing.
Enter the community in Cologne: Meet like-minded music lovers, test instruments from our exhibitors or tap in a workshop. But be careful: new friendships may happen!
We promote new and aspiring artists and throw them in front of an international audience. Legend has it, that no one ever returned from Euroblast without a new band discovery.
We try our hardest to not overlap bands and stages, so it's possible to view all 40+ bands and only miss the minutes to get a fresh beer.
The venue will open daily at 1:00 PM and will close on Friday at 2:00 AM and Sunday at 4:00 AM.
The Euroblast Festival takes place on both stages of the Essigfabrik Cologne,Siegburger Straße 110, 50679 Cologne, Germany.
