Answering your questions regarding AR2021
Lately, you haven’t been getting much information from us regarding this year’s edition of the Audioriver festival. As you can probably guess, this is due to the still unclear situation regarding festivals this year, many unknowns, and issues beyond our control that we have to deal with.
However, we want to reassure you that we assume that the festival will take place. Its form will be adjusted to the current conditions, we are preparing for different scenarios. At this point, however, it is too early to give you more details.
We have decided to answer and summarize the issues that are most frequently mentioned in the questions we receive from you.
Canceling/postponing/changing the festival form – As you know, last year we informed you about our decisions on an ongoing basis. We announced the postponement of the 15th edition of Audioriver in April, which was 3 months before the planned date of the event in 2020. At that time, we were 100% sure that the festival would not take place and you found out about it immediately. You can be sure that we will inform you about any changes concerning this year as soon as possible.
The festival program – so far we have only announced 8 artists of over a hundred, but we have confirmed almost all the artists that are planned to perform at the next edition of Audioriver. Due to the unclear situation regarding festivals, clubs, and other events not only in Poland but in many countries, we are withholding further announcements. We are still in constant contact with the artists’ agents and managers, but whether they will come to Plock depends on many factors. Some of the performers are canceling their tours, the regulations of crossing national borders are still changing, and the form of the festival will have to be adjusted to the current regulations of mass events.
Audioriver organization plan – based on your suggestions, we have been preparing further plans, more entrance gates, and ideas for facilities in the festival area. Since the end of 2019, we have been working on designs for stages, multimedia, and decorations. We don’t know yet how the regulations for mass events will look like for the coming summer, but we are prepared to organize the festival in the best possible conditions, regardless of its form.
Tickets – many of you have left your tickets for the postponed 15th edition of Audioriver, for which we are very grateful. In case of any changes this year, together with ebilet.pl we will keep you informed about possible solutions, including the possibility to exchange or return tickets.
Epidemiological conditions – we have been receiving a lot of questions about whether only vaccinated people or those who provide proof of a current negative COVID-19 test will be allowed to enter the festival area. At the moment, we do not have any clear information about such regulations from the Polish government, the introduction of these solutions at the festival will depend on the current regulations for mass events.
