We’re aware that many people have been speculating about the practicalities around hosting Roadburn 2021 as we originally planned – with everything simply carried over from 2020. Despite encouraging news about vaccines we are just not in a position to assume that will be possible in four months from now.

We are currently planning a very much scaled down, COVID-proof version of Roadburn for April 2021, which will be accessible whether you’re in Tilburg or somewhere else around the globe. We’ll have more information on that in the new year…

We’re so grateful that back in March/April you decided to roll over your tickets to 2021, but we understand that you might not be in a position to roll over again to 2022, so we will be offering refunds to those who would like to claim them. Holding on to your ticket is a huge help to us, and it guarantees your access to Roadburn in 2022 (set for April 21-24) – at 2020 prices!

Your options are as follows:

ROLLOVER – you’ve done it once, if you’d like to do it again and secure your ticket for Roadburn 2022 (set for April 21-24) then you don’t need to do anything and your ticket will automatically rollover.

REFUNDS – if you would like a refund you can request one via TicketmasterCLICK HERE.
You will have until February 10, 2021 to decide what you would like to do (if you do nothing, your ticket converts to a 2022 Roadburn ticket). Refundsincluding those requested earlier this year – will take place on February 19, 2021.

If you booked a camping ticket of any sort or the night bus this will be refunded at the same time in February, regardless of whether you roll over your festival ticket or not. We will make plans for the 2022 Roadburn campsite in due course, but felt that it was fair to free up your money now so you can revisit your accommodation choices closer to the time.

Like many festivals, we are still facing tough decisions about how to progress in the face of an unpredictable, unprecedented pandemic. We have decided that we will not be rolling over the entire line up to 2022; it would be a huge risk and for many reasons it’s not practical to do so. However, we are in communication with bands, booking agents, labels etc to work out the best way to move forward. We have so many once-in-a-lifetime sets at Roadburn, and for some we’re going to have to wait a bit longer for those unique performances. Whilst we cannot tell you our 2022 plans now – we promise to deliver the high-level, special shows that you’ve become accustomed to.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. Despite the silver lining of being able to connect with the Roadburn community this coming April – more news on that in the new year – it is still with a sense of disbelief that we tackle each and every part of this endeavour. We hope you’re safe, well and finding solace in music, as we are.
