Unfortunately this means the festival season as we know it, with highlights like Intents Festival, Defqon.1 Festival, Dominator, Decibel outdoor and many others, will not take place in the summer of 2020. The measures of the government to cancel all events and gatherings until June 1st, have now been prolonged until September 1st.

Many festivals have been postponed until next year, which means your ticket will be valid for the editions in 2021. Stay safe!
