AFGELAST – NEW METAL FESTIVAL 2020
Dear New Metal Festival visitors,
Slovenian government decided that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, mass gatherings and live events ban in Slovenia from 12.03.2020 will be extended until further Notice.
Based on the Slovenia’s government decision as well as the statement that we received from the National Institute for Public Health (NIJZ) we are left with no choice but to cancel New Metal Festival 2020.
New Metal Festival team has been working intensively on the 2020 edition and all of us are bitterly disappointed for not being able to enjoy New Metal Festival 2020 together with you. This cancelation affects us heavily (mentally and financially) and we will need some time to recover and reorganise. This is a real blow for our company, all the artists in the music industry, whole Posočje territory as well as for our subcontractors, volunteers and complete festival crew and their families.
Nevertheless, we support the decision of the Slovenian government in this difficult situation. Your health and safety are our top priorities, and our responsibility as promoters is a reason more to follow the instructions and guidelines.
We will let you know about postponed dates for New Metal Festival 2020 as soon as we have made our decision, which will be based on discussions with all the Agents/Managements/Artists, and with all related festivals in the same time frame as ours. We hope to be able to give you more information about dates and line up very soon.
We are asking for a little bit of patience whilst we work through this.
We thank you for your trust during these difficult times.
New Metal Festival
