Yesterday it was announced all events in The Netherlands are officially cancelled until the 1st of September. This also means one of the true highlights of the festival season, Intents, will not take place this year. The organisation has released an official statement regarding the unfortunate situation.

For 16 years, Intents Festival has been visited by ten thousands of lovers travelling to The Netherlands, “with a shared mission: to celebrate their love of the harder styles.” Unfortunately the festival season of 2020 won’t take place, which also made the organisation of Intents Festival had to postpone this edition to the summer of 2021.

“Imagine: you’ve worked for almost a year, all the preparations are well underway, tickets have sold out, well over 350 artists have been scheduled, stage designs are ready to be manufactured, the festival site has been re-sown and looks amazingly green. Everything is going according to plan and those involved were already counting down to the sunny days of June. The finales were being programmed and we were putting the finishing touches to things. The excitement was tangible… it was going to be magical! We were all set for the “Game of the year”. And then, suddenly, everything ground to a halt…”

“Only if we come together as a community can we beat this virus and win this difficult game”

Intents Festival – Step into the Game has been moved to the 4th, 5th and 6th of June 2021. All tickets will remain 100% valid, and the organisation promises this will be the most beautiful edition of Intents: “Mind-blowing DJ sets, even more amazing fireworks finales and a mainstage you will have to see to believe.” Read the full statement here and #seeyouatintents21!
