Current plan for Waves 2021 with Covid-19

4. May 2021

There is still the question of how Waves Festival 2021 will be able to look like in early September, what is the plan, what do we have in mind. In fact, at the beginning of May we can’t even guess now what the situation will be at the beginning of September 2021 in relation to Covid-19. At least financially, we can consider ourselves under the protection of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Regions and Tourism, which has confirmed the “Protective Shield for Events I” for the Waves Festival 2021.
In view of this, we are currently planning a full edition of the Waves Festival for 9 to 11 September 2021. Of course, we are not reassured, but have thought of various safety precautions and also have several alternatives in the planning quiver to be able to react to any developments, including restrictions and requirements, during the summer.

One of them includes a conversion to a hybrid or purely online version of the festival, which we unfortunately already experienced last year. In the course of this, there would also be an offer to ticket buyers to exchange purchased tickets for next year if the alternative variant of the festival does not appeal to them.

So much for the current state of planning. We will of course keep you informed about further developments on the website, via newsletter and on social media.
