Why isn’t Nostalgie Beach Festival taking place in 2020?
The National Security Council decided that large gatherings are banned in Belgium until 31 August 2020 due to the COVID-19 situation. The health and safety of the fans, artists and festival staff is always the top priority for the organizers of the Nostalgie Beach Festival. Following the guidelines from the government, bearing responsibility, taking care for yourself and your loved ones and trying to halt the virus: that’s what it’s all about! Therefore the organizers of the Nostalgie Beach Festival bear their responsibility and they have decided to move the Nostalgie Beach Festival from this year, to next year 2021.
When will Nostalgie Beach Festival take place in 2021?
Nostalgie Beach Festival will take place Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of august 2021.
Will Nostalgie Beach Festival 2021 have the same line-up as in 2020?
The Nostalgie Beach Festival programmers are currently in negotiations and in close liaison to the already confirmed artists of Nostalgie Beach Festival 2020. Their goal: assembling once again a grand cru line-up for Nostalgie Beach Festival 2021. Due to the busy schedule of the artists, which is mostly already fully booked in advance, it is possible that the line-up is a bit different then the line-up from this year. You will find more information about the line-up shortly on the website www.nostalgiebeachfestival.be
What about tickets purchased for Nostalgie Beach Festival 2020? Will these be refunded?
In response to the exceptional circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the (Belgian) Minister of Employment, Economy and Consumer Affairs has issued a ministerial decree to limit the impact of COVID-19 on the event sector and to safeguard the interests of ticket holders. Based on that decision, the programmers of the Nostalgie Beach Festival can, under certain conditions, issue a so-called “corona crisis voucher” to the ticket holders. More information on this ministerial decision can be found on the website of the FOD Economie.
Concretely speaking, this ministerial decree means that tickets purchased for the Nostalgie Beach Festival of Saturday 8 August 2020, serve as a voucher for the new Nostalgie Beach Festival date on Saturday 7 August 2021, and Nostalgie Beach Festival tickets for Sunday 9 August 2020, will serve as a voucher for the new Nostalgie Beach Festival date on Sunday 8 August 2021.
Likewise, any food and drink voucher purchased for Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August 2020, will serve as a food and drink voucher for the Nostalgie Beach Festival on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 August 2021.
