We have wanted to talk to you for quite some time, but at the moment the truth of one day is rarely the truth of the next. We are all in this case, blocked for almost a year, waiting on the decisions of our governments.
We are extremely grateful to all of you, loyal and supportive, most of whom have decided to keep their ticket for a future edition without asking for a refund. This has warmed our hearts and we know how lucky we are.
However, in view of the latest announcements by our Minister of Culture, we have decided to offer a refund for all tickets purchased for the 2020 and 2021 editions.
This is for two reasons.
1/ To think that an event like ours can be improvised in a few weeks is a misunderstanding of our profession. How can we organize an event like ours without details on the health measures to be respected (physical distance, number of authorized spectators, constraints linked to the reception of the public, etc…).
Without knowing whether we will be able to open bars or food stands? How can we design a line up when we don’t know if our artists will be able to travel? Same question for our public who come from all over the world…
2/ But also because we are well aware that these decisions impact you as much as us. Knowing that you have such large sums of money out in these uncertain times worries us. So we prefer to refund you all, to settle the accounts as we do between good friends. We’d rather close the ticket sales of the 2020 and 2021 editions without offering to roll them over to the next edition which will take place in 2022, starting again from scratch. Together.
As you can imagine, this is when the Festival needs your support the most, so you can ask for a partial refund or you can decide that the ticket is simply cancelled. Of course, if and only if you are willing and able to help the Worldwide Festival.
(Refund terms will be sent to purchasers in the coming days)
Ps: For those who do not know it yet, we also have some very nice felt for turntables
vinyls in our online shop
However, we also wanted to reassure you on one point.
This refund does NOT mean that we decide not to do anything this summer.
On the contrary, this refund allows us to balance our accounts and start from scratch.
But it also frees us from our usual format, to try to offer you something new, different, to adapt our proposal.
So we’ll still see you in July 2021 (from the 9th to the 11th) for an event that we’ll decide over time, as announcements are made and government decisions are made.
We will adapt, that’s our strength !!!
We cannot spend another year without seeing your smiles.
So we hope that all our festival-goers from all over the world will be able to travel, and that you will be there if you have the opportunity. We will keep you informed in the coming weeks.
For all those who won’t be able to be with us, a little more patience (we know, it’s hard) and we’ll meet again in 2022 to finally celebrate this (F****G) birthday that we’re all waiting for.
