Pieter De Crem's statement was clear now: no big festivals.
They discuss this on the next federal security meeting and will inform all majors and organisers soon.

Here in Portugal Primavera Sound postponed to September, Rock in Rio postponed to 2021 and NOS Alive decides at the end of April what it will do.

In my opinion, as hard as it is for me, I already thought that this year we will not have a festival, no matter how much there is a survey of the state of emergency and it takes time to set up the festivals, I do not know how much people will be allowed to be together. in one place.

It hurts to think that my first trip to RW will be postponed!

Much strength for everyone here on the forum.

Belgian interior minister said this morning that all festivals will be cancelled. It's just a matter of confirmation by the national security council, which will happen either this or next Friday.

I hope that all belgian festivals will go ahead next year. Imo Belgium is the best country in the world for attending festivals. Nice people, nice atmosphere, nice country and great organization.

I would love to hear who they had lined up. Bought a day ticket for The Strokes, but so far I was underwhelmed by the announced acts.

Rock Werchter will be back without a doubt. Am even expecting a stronger than ever line up if they are able to combine some of the current big names with those rumored for next year's season (Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, RATM, NIN, RHCP, Metallica, The Weeknd, Tame Impala). 

Other festivals might suffer a worse fate though. We already have several smaller festivals who needed to reinvent their concept after a history of struggles (Ieperfest, Leffingeleuren). Suikerrock was supposed to hold its last edition because the festival wasn't financially viable anymore. We've already heard from several insiders that Pukkelpop is still under financial pressure after some bad years.

I'd be very happy if they pushed this year's biggest headliners, Pearl Jam, The Strokes, Kendrick Lamar and System Of a Down, to next year. This year had one of the best, most balanced lineups they've had. 🙂Maybe with Tame Impala on the Strokes day and an extra day for a new headliner. 

And I think that will be their top priority, especially if they give the current ticket holders the opportunity to turn their 2020 ticket into a 2021 one.

No new names this week, in case that wasn't already clear. Maybe next week or the one after.

I really really REALLY miss these kind of posts...

A month ago, we, production RW, never expected that we have to cancel RW. The forces of nature... Because of insurance issues, it is important that the government cancels the big events. 

About the bands, the contracts are signed. Most of the bands will we see the next couple of years at RW. That is something that happens a lot in this business, but we have never an idea of. Band A cancels his show in 2015, was never announced, played in 2017 under the same contract. They can also put that artist, with the same contract, on another festival of them... 

Biggest question. What will Rotselaar do with the max of 20 days of RW events in 3 years. We are missing 6 days now. More shows next year ;-).

Next year, rock werchter can last five days instead of four. LiveNation will probably find a perfect date for Werchter boutique pop up! So, eight days of Werchter!

I hope Taylor swift will do his concert in Werchter next year!

Will be very interesting to see how will summer 2021 look like. All the big bands will loose this summer...pearl jam, RATM, the strokes, the killers, taylor, billie, faith no more...will they just put them all on 2021 events, like 2020 never happened ? If so, what happens with bands that were about to tour in 2021....metallica, nine inch nails, bruce s, ac/dc....it will be extremely crowded, in a world hit by biggest financial crisis since second world war....will be very very interesting to see how that plays out

Been thinking that myself. Particularly as some festivals such as rosklide and copenhell sold out their weekend tickets on the strength of their lineups this year. Think they will try and honour as much of the lineup as they can.

It would be interesting, however, if bands like who you mentioned, have signed contracts with festivals to play in 2021. Seems a bit far off, but you never know.

Because of the huge amount of acts touring, some might just have to do indoor shows first and leave the festivals until a year later.

That and you will of course see a considerable split between early and late summer acts.

Pearl Jam having to cancel Hide Park amongst other festivals across Europe. Friday they will give more info on their European tour, coincidentally also the same day the Belgian gouvernement will probably cancel all festivals this summer... more info on Friday then?

My hopes are just copy-paste to next year and we get to keep our tickets for then.

Copy-paste Pearl Jam & The Strokes, add Coldplay/Oasis/Foo Fighters/Metallica and we're good to go :)
