Do you think there will be a true festival in 2021? As we write, work is under way to rescue the 2021 Danish festival season. Festivals and authorities are cooperating to find secure ways of containing the corona virus. Nobody knows what next summer will bring. One thing, however, is certain: we are doing everything we can to ensure there will be a Tønder Festival in 2021.
We can't say yet.
At the moment we are looking at various models for the running of Tønder Festival. And irrespective of the model we choose for 2021, Tønder Festival will still be the genuine music experience with the special atmosphere we are known for, while living up to all the authorities' requirements.
If you bought a 2021 ticket, or exchanged your 2020 ticket for a 2021, then you are as sure as you can be of getting admission to Tønder Festival 2021. If the powers that be cut back on the numbers admissable, then we will have to annul some tickets.
If it comes to that, we have decided on a 'last in, first out' principle, which means that the earlier you bought your ticket, the surer you are of participating in Tønder Festival 2021.
Should you be unfortunate enough to have your ticket voided, you will be contacted by our ticket agents and naturally have a full refund.
The Tønder Festival 2020 program was complete when the corona crisis hit, and all bets were off. The Festival was cancelled, but many of the musicians booked quickly sent word that they would defer their contract until 2021.
It's been heartwarming to see the fantastic support Tønder Festival has received from our audience, musicians, technicians, vounteers, our partners and local society. We know that many of you really miss the music, the atmosphere and the good company at Tønder Festival. We all need to meet for our festival fix next year at Tønder Festival 2021.
The 2020 cancellation means that Tønder Festival is unable to meet its commitments as a non-profit event: dividing the profits among cultural and musical projects in Tønder. Several organisations and initiatives in the Tønder area are hit.
The cancellation has also affected musicians and their crews. All Tønder Festival's partners and suppliers of goods and services have lost income, goodwill and synergy, all necessary for their continued existence.
First and foremost, you can show your support by being a true festival original: wear the Tønder Festival support T-shirt, wear a support wristband, send supportive messages by mail or on Facebook. We appreciate your backing of all kinds!
A new means of supporting Tønder Festival is to buy a donor ticket for the Tønder Festival Association. As a donor, you help provide security for the future of the Tønder Festival Association.
It is important to note that donations to Tønder Festival Association are labelled 'free funds' and as such cannot be handed out as benefits for local initiatives. Both private individuals and companies can be donors.
