Untold festival just announced that its 2020 edition will not be taking place. It was the last standing major summer festival still possibly taking place.
Even with the overall improvement in sanitary conditions in Europe, Untold fans will have to wait until 2021. The Romanian festival was expecting around 300,000 festival-goers.
Untold has seen this coming. The festival announced earlier in April that tickets bought for 2020 will also be valid for the 3 upcoming editions (Anytime Pass). Therefore those who already purchased tickets can use them for 2021 or swap them for vouchers to buy Untold merch. Refunds can be made between October 1 and December 31 of 2021.
Already 95% of people who purchased tickets swapped them for the Anytime Pass. “We thank you for all your trust and we promise that you will have the most beautiful experiences at any of the next 3 editions you will decide to join.

Romanian Government issued earlier in May, a decision banning cultural, artistic, and sports gatherings held in closed venues. This includes also open-air concerts and other types of gatherings, including drive-in events.
