The Paradigm feeling. Something we just can’t do without. It has been a trying time since the beginning of the current crisis. It still is, for everyone. But there’s a light peeking at the end of the tunnel.
Believing that Paradigm Festival 2021 would happen is something we kept doing throughout all this. But we have to follow up on decisions made by our government, relevant restrictions and make decisions based on the available information. This doesn’t offer any assurances but we’ve made the decision to work towards Paradigm Festival 2021 in an adjusted form, as we feel the need to share the Paradigm feeling with you once again in a safe manner!
This year’s Paradigm Festival will be scaled down from three to two days: Saturday the 14th and Sunday the 15th of August. The nights will be rescinded completely, as well as the campsite. We are also allowing fewer visitors than previously projected and we’ll have fewer tickets to sell as a result. These are adjustments we’d rather not have implemented, but we don’t have any other options because of the Corona restrictions. We still feel that this is the right choice as we’re not willing to abstain for another year. We intend to break the cycle and turn these rough times into something worthwhile and positive.
These changes have additional consequences regarding our ticketing. We’ll give ticket holders the choice between keeping their ticket for Paradigm Festival 2022 or converting their ticket to a voucher to be used for tickets this year. We’re going to send all ticket holders an email about this later today. Regular ticket sale will start on June 10.
We all want to thank you so very much for your loyalty and undying support. We’d also like to extend our thanks and immense appreciation to the bookers and artists for their flexibility and support in this matter. The following artists have been confirmed:
Saturday: Stranger, Ivan Iacobucci, Perc, Steve O'Sullivan, Afra, Quest, Kosmische Kracht *live, Comrade Winston, Joannes b2b Nuno Dos Santos, Alex Jansen and Gerrit de Boer
Sunday: DVS1, Steve Rachmad aka Sterac, Spokenn (Ferro & Reiss), ROD, Tripeo, Alinka, Joren Edwards, Milena Doudou and Neo Young
