Following the events of the COVID-19 pandemic, Electric Castle, a festival which has taken place each year since 2013, has been postponed until July 14th – 18th, 2021.

The announcement came as both Untold Festival and Jazz in the Park were also postponed and was delivered both on their social media platforms, and to their ticket holders and email subscribers.

The team announced, “Your health and safety have always been our top priority and, unfortunately, at this point, there is no ideal scenario or bulletproof safe way to hold the festival. With all this in mind and a heavy heart, we decided the safest way to go ahead is to postpone EC8 for 14-18 July, 2021.

Creating the festival takes a full year of continuous hard work and two months for actually building it. Right now, we were supposed to be in Bontida, building the EC world. However, there is a lot of uncertainty regarding health and safety measures, travel restrictions and other details that need to be planned in advance so we can deliver the expected experience. Even the authorities couldn’t provide us with specific details or plans regarding the festival’s situation. Your health and safety have always been our top priority and, unfortunately, at this point, there is no ideal scenario or bulletproof safe way to hold the festival. With all this in mind and a heavy heart, we decided the safest way to go ahead is to postpone EC8 for 14-18 July, 2021.

Needless to say, this is a major hit and disappointment not only for all fans, but also for the thousands of people involved in making the festival happen. A multi-layered industry made up of production professionals, technicians, artists, architects, vendors, local communities and volunteers will be deeply affected.”

They continue by informing that ticket holders can still use their tickets next year, or in the event that festival-goers are not able to make the 2021 event, that additional options will be outlined in the next few days.
