Imagine: you’ve worked for almost a year, all the preparations are well underway, tickets have sold out, well over 350 artists have been scheduled, stage designs are ready to be manufactured, the festival site has been re-sown and looks amazingly green. Everything is going according to plan and those involved were already counting down to the sunny days of June. The finales were being programmed and we were putting the finishing touches to things. The excitement was tangible… it was going to be magical! We were all set for the "Game of the year". And then, suddenly, everything ground to a halt...
On 21 April 2020 at 19:00 the Dutch Prime Minister announced that the measures concerning events will be prolonged which means Intents Festival is now prohibited from going ahead.
For the past 16 years, tens of thousands of amazing people have been coming together in the first weekend in June with a shared mission: to celebrate their love of the Harder Styles. Both the audience and the organisers long for the festival season. The disappointment is therefore intense and understandable. In recent weeks we have been busy examining the many options. However, we are sad to have to announce that we are moving Intents Festival - Step into the Game to 4, 5 & 6 June 2021.
Sometimes, we – as humans – have to experience the worst, to then be able to appreciate the best. Only if we come together as a community can we beat this virus and win this difficult game.
The tickets you hold will remain 100% valid for the 2021 edition. And, together, we are going to make 2021 the very best Intents Festival ever. Mind-blowing DJ sets, even more amazing fireworks finales and a mainstage you will have to see to believe. At least you won’t get stressed running three computers simultaneously trying to get hold of tickets. All you have to do is put the ones you already have in a safe place.
Intents Festival also supports the saveyourticket.nl campaign. If you don't want to save your current tickets, then you can have them converted into a voucher. The voucher can subsequently be used to buy a different ticket for Intents Festival or one for Karnaval Festival. Please note: this does mean you lose your guaranteed ticket to Intents Festival. You can swap your voucher code as of June 2020.
Our Intents Festival community is tight knit, our connection is deep and only together can we overcome this situation.
