Lowlands Festival announce that there will be no Lowlands this summer. The festival will be moved to next year due to the ban on large-scale events until September 1st. See full statement on their website to fans below….
We all saw it coming, but the hammer has finally fallen: there will be no Lowlands this summer. The festival will be moved to next year due to the ban on large-scale events until September 1st as a result of the corona crisis.
Like you, we are heartbroken. Everyone was so excited: tickets were sold out in no time, bands, artists, writers, theatre makers, scientists, foodies and crews were booked, and everybody was raring to come to Biddinghuizen. But there’s no way around it: we’re in this together and everyone understands that these government measures are necessary. All we can do now is look to the future and promise you that we’ll make Lowlands 2021 an all-out party beyond your wildest dreams.
Lowlands is affiliated with ‘Save your ticket, enjoy later’, a contingency plan that is supported by the entire Dutch cultural sector. This ensures that your ticket will be valid for Lowlands 2021. No action necessary on your part, at next year’s edition you can use the ticket that you received for Lowlands 2020. This applies not only to your festival ticket, but also to any other tickets such as parking permits, camper camping tickets, Gllamcamp accommodations, etc. You also have the choice to convert your ticket(s) into a credit for other concerts and events, or to request a refund. Please check this webpage for more information on this plan. Currently we are working with Ticketmaster on the technical side of handling credits and refunds. This will take some time, we hope you’ll understand. As soon as it is possible to request a credit or refund ticket buyers will receive an email from Ticketmaster.
If you’ve bought a ticket through TicketSwap or a similar outlet, the ticket will remain valid for Lowlands 2021 as well. You are not eligible for a credit or refund, because we only contact ticket holders that have purchased their ticket directly from Ticketmaster. Please note that we cannot guarantee the validity of tickets that were not purchased directly from Ticketmaster.
Ticketmaster will soon launch the Fan2Fan platform. You can safely sell your ticket here if you should decide to not go to Lowlands 2021 after all. The seller’s ticket will be invalidated, while the buyer receives a ticket with a new QR code, ensuring buyers that they’re getting a valid ticket. Only e-tickets can be sold through this service, hard-copy tickets cannot. More information on Fan2Fan will follow later.
We hope to see you on 20 + 21 + 22 August 2021 in Biddinghuizen.
Hang in there & stay safe,
