Dominator: “This news was to be expected, but obviously hit our team hard”
It has just been announced that all events and festivals are forbidden in The Netherlands, which means that also Dominator has now been cancelled due to the coronavirus. The organisation of the biggest hardcore festival in the world has now responded with a statement.
About 50.000 visitors from all over the world are attending Dominator each year and every edition is also completely sold out. This year, the hardcore festival would have a campsite for the very first time, including a pre-party on Friday, but COVID-19 thought otherwise unfortunately. Art of Dance and Q-dance have now responded to the very sad news.
Today, April 21st, the Dutch government announced an extension of its measures concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. All events scheduled to take place until August 31st are forced to be postponed. So, with a lot of pain in our hearts we have to inform you that Dominator Festival cannot take place on July 18th 2020 and will therefore be moved to July 17th 2021. Our newly launched campsite will return with the same pre-party line-up on Friday as announced earlier.
This news was to be expected, but obviously hit our team hard. Dominator is THE hardcore festival in the world and our team members work really hard year-round to create a home to hundreds of thousands of hardcore souls from all over the world. We hoped with all our hearts that we could welcome you this year. However, the health and safety of you, our visitors, artists, staff and loved ones is what matters the most and therefore we understand this decision.
Even though the situation is beyond our control, we sincerely hope for your understanding. Tickets and travel packages that have already been purchased will remain valid for the edition on July 17th 2021. All ticket buyers will be contacted personally by email within the following days regarding the next steps. Make sure you also check your spam folder.
Stay safe, stay home, together we will DOMINATE! ?
