[News] Midsummer Prog Festival postponed due to Coronavirus pandemic

Dear visitors of Midsummer Prog Festival. 

We have bad news to share with you. Due to the Coronavirus situation, we have been forced to postpone the 4th edition of Midsummer Prog Festival to June 26th, 2021.

Although the Dutch government currently forbids all events up until the 1st of June, we fear that this ban will be extended. The situation for the rest of the summer is looking highly unstable. Bands and fans have been asking us what to do, especially regarding travel plans. At least 60% of our fans travel from abroad and we have no idea how different countries will react to the virus threat in the near future.

As music lovers, we organize Midsummer Prog because we love music and we love creating something beautiful together with you. We feel truly sorry that the 2020 edition cannot happen. But of course, health always comes first.

We spoke with all the bands about trying to get 2020’s lineup also in 2021. It seems very likely that we can keep the same lineup but we will know this for sure in a couple of months and we will keep you posted. Of course, we will hold the festival in the same beautiful setting – Openluchttheater Valkenburg, The Netherlands!

Tickets purchased will stay valid for the 2021 event, so please hang on to them, but if you want a refund; our ticketing service (Eventix) will send you a separate email with a refund button.

We’ve made costs (apart from the many hours of work) and although these costs won’t kill us, we do really appreciate if you would like to support us a little. We made a donation button on www.midsummerprog.com for this.

Thank you in advance,

Rob & Ingo

Stay healthy, stay safe & take care of each other.
