Nova Rock Festival also stopped this year due to Corona
The unclear corona situation will also stop the edition of the Nova Rock Festival in Nickelsdorf, which is planned for June 2-5, the concert promoter Barracuda Music announced to the APA on Monday. The federal government had not received any information as to whether major events could be held in June: “A certificate of poverty that makes any further comment superfluous,” the statement said. The next edition is now set to rise from June 9th to June 12th, 2022.
After months of waiting in vain for a decision by the government, today we are experiencing “again one of those days that gives us absolutely no pleasure”. The hanging game now forces the organizer to “make this decision with a heavy heart” and not allow the traditional concert series, with an emphasis on rock of the somewhat harder pace, to take place on the Pannonia Fields in northern Burgenland.
It would be in the hands of politicians “to make these decisions, but on the other hand the assumption is growing every day that it is better to leave such bad news to someone else, namely us. Our requests and demands have been completely ignored to date,” so that Organizing team of Austria’s largest rock festival around Barracuda Music boss Ewald Tatar.
Information on planning and on how to proceed with the handling of tickets that have already been purchased will be approached to the prevented festival visitors as soon as possible. “It will be really exciting to see if and when we will get announcements regarding all July and August events,” the letter says. In countries like England, the Netherlands or Switzerland, there are currently “positive prospects” in this regard.
Headliners such as System of a Down, Volbeat, Seiler and Speer, Deichkind, Billy Talent and Muse had announced themselves for the four days of Nova Rock 2021.
