Viele haben damit gerechnet, nun ist auch die gefühlt letzte Punkrocker Bastion gebrochen: Das Booze Cruise Festival hat seine Absage für 2021 bekannt gegeben. Das Booze Cruise Festival VI findet nächsten Sommer vom 24. bis 26. Juni 2022 statt. Die nächste Frosty Booze Cruise ist für den 24. – 25. Februar 2023 geplant – „wenn der jährliche Winterlockdown hoffentlich vorbei ist“. Lest hier das komplette Statement des Veranstalters:
this painful decision has been looming for a while now but we feel it’s now time to make the call. Regrettably, we are going to have to cancel BOOZE CRUISE festival V….once again. As you can imagine, this is not an easy one for us…again.
Again we have done everything we can to make this work but it’s seeming more than ever, impossible for the festival to take place in an environment that is safe for everyone involved. As of today, 60% of all bands have cancelled their appearance, the venues involved will cancel all shows for the next weeks from now, more and more people are refunding their festival tickets. We probably would have to wear masks at the shows and there could be an immediate lockdown once Hamburg’s incidence rate hits the 350 mark. Don’t know about you, but we spell fun differently. As it stands, there is no reschedule date. We will start the refund process for everyone who has purchased a ticket. Although we have applied for some federal culture fonds, we don’t know yet, if we will get enough money to cover all bands’ expenses. We will put a benefit – shirt and pillow cushion in our store in the next days, maybe you can help us out and chip in some bucks. We are so sorry for the bad news Stay safe, stay sane, listen to Dillinger Four and headbutt some Anti-VaxxersKevin
