NDF 2020 HAS BEEN POSTPONED:
The Covid-19 situation in Europe is worsening by the day, and while we would like to stand tall and hope for the best for as long as possible, we currently find ourselves in a situation that would impact too many attendees and bands to a point that they cannot be in Eindhoven in early May. Countries across Europe continue to close borders, so at this point, we don't want anyone to put themselves in a risky situation during this global pandemic, which includes running the risk of getting stuck and quarantined somewhere during this time of unprecedented and ongoing uncertainty.
We felt that it would be best to postpone the event to a later date. By doing so, we will be able to deliver the line-up of bands that you were expecting to see, rather than waiting until the last minute and having countless bands drop off if we keep it on the originally scheduled dates.
The new dates for Netherlands Deathfest V are April 30-May 2, 2021.
Over the course of the last few days, we have been working tirelessly to gather as many of the same bands to play on the new dates, so we're pleased to say that, as of now, 31 of the 37 originally scheduled bands have already committed to play on the new dates. The only bands that haven't been able to commit already are Death Strike, Disfear, The Afternoon Gentlemen, Vile, Rites of Thy Degringolade, and Rebaelliun. Should any of these bands not be able to confirm in the coming months, they will be replaced.
We understand that moving the dates could be a huge inconvenience for many, but as the World is shutting down around us, there isn't much we can do about it. Unrecoverable money has already been invested into the event and the bands that were scheduled to perform, so this postponement is obviously a huge headache and will lead to a loss of money for us. We are just a couple of underground promoters that wanted to bring you the line-up of bands advertised, but this change felt like the only way that would make that possible. We truly appreciate your support and understanding during this difficult time.
All tickets remain valid for the new dates.
Considering that the weekend passes sold out 5 months before the originally scheduled dates and we won't release more, if you can't attend the new dates, we recommend selling it to another interested buyer. Soon we will implement a system that can bring buyer and seller together in a comfortable way, free of confusion and the potential of scammers. More info on this will come soon after we have a bit of time to catch our breath.
Anyone that purchased tickets on Ticketmaster will receive e-mail instructions regarding the next steps.
