Isn't that just the american ticketmaster? We have more consumer rights and protections in europe.

As in they were offering refunds on postponed dates, and as of a couple of days ago they are not. 

Can never be enforced. One cannot unilatterally change the 'contract''. We'll see what is to be decided this afternoon.

Rock Werchter cancelled. Like Werchter Boutique too. Press conference of the Prime Minister in 5 minutes: they will announce the lockdown until May 3rd and all events are cancelled until July 31th.

About TicketMaster, I also think they can't do it. But seems they did...

Is it not the 31st August?

this still leaves place for other festivals like pukkelpop, but isnt it obvious at this point that all 2020 is gone? why set a deadline for cancellation and postpone it after? (which is what all countries are doing and I really don’t get it 🤷‍♂️)

 

Edit: ok it’s August, makes a lot more sense

The first informations in the medias said July 31th but she announced officially 31 August. Which makes more sense. Not surprise but still a very sad news...

What is could find on Belgian site is this (sorry for my awful English, hope you understand)....

- RW is allowed to provide us with a voucher instead of repaying us:

* if event is not cancelled but organised at a later date at the same location or nearby

* if event is organised 2 years after the original event at the latest

* voucher for the value of the original ticket without any extra costs

* voucher states specifically that it's a Corana voucher

* RW is not allow to ask for additional payment for the new event

* If you can prove you are not able to attend the new event RW has to repay you.

lets all pray for 2021, first that this thing passes and that there are festivals in 2021

and secondly; that people actually have any money to afford to go to concerts

So does this forum get renamed to 2021 or will a new one be made? 
 

Not letting the festival take place this year was and is the only sensible option. Hope as much as possible from this year’s lineup gets recovered to next year... first time since 2014 I won’t be at Werchter 😒

Gutted. But expected. Am I the only one that still sometimes thinks: 'Is this real?'

Next year I am going to fly to the damn moon if thats what it take to see the Strokes live finally. Can't believe I waited my entire life to see them, and now its cancelled.

If 2021 isn't the best festival year of all time I will be furious 

It will be. We’ll make sure it will.

Gutted about today’s news. 2021 feels like an eternity, but it’ll be here sooner than we think.

Those saying summer 2021 should temper your expectations. If we don't have a vaccine before then then we're almost certainly going to be continuing social distancing to an extent and that includes not having enormous gatherings of people.

Bars and cafes are one thing. Festivals are another. 2021 is in absolutely no way a certainty right now. Yes, stay optimistic! But stay realistic too.

Since money makes the world turn, by then economics will have more weight in the scale compared to the health concept. 
Sad but true.

Why give over? He is right. Plus, half of the beloved small festivals will be dead and gone by the next year, after this catastrophe.

Things will change, it is good to hope for the best and to do your own little effort to make things improve, but you cannot believe that next year it will all be fine and dandy by default, shit has hit the fan and you cannot assume that we ran out of shit yet.
