It was already expected that Rock Herk 2021 would not be able to happen at full capacity. Following the decisions of the government a few days ago, the 38th edition of Rock Herk will be postponed to Friday 15 and Saturday 16 July 2022.

For the second time in a row, since the very first edition in 1983, there will be no Rock Herk this summer which still feels unbelievable. However, in these times we find it our duty to remain positive and to look forward to the future. Postponement doesn’t mean a cancellation.

On the other hand, there are possibilities given to set up events in the summer of 2021. Right now, we are not making any big plans, but we are looking to see if we can set up one or more events as an alternative to the festival. Every alternative will obviously be in the style of Rock Herk. For these events we are looking at the Rock Herk weekend, but also at the period of September and the fall.

We’ll follow the new measures at close hand and we’ll see how the fight against the coronavirus unfolds together with you. More news regarding the alternative events will follow in the course of the coming weeks and months.

What does this mean for the line-up?

A lot of artists have already been confirmed and announced for the 38th edition of Rock Herk. We are assuming that we will be able to retain most of these artists. The negotiations have already started. In addition, there are also many great artists confirmed but not yet announced. This will also be communicated in due time.

What does this mean for ticket holders?

Each ticket holder will be offered the value of their tickets in the form of credits. These credits can be spent during two years on the different Rock Herk products (alternative events / festival tickets / food-drink tickets / camping tickets / ...). In addition, ticket holders are also offered the option of a full refund for the tickets purchased, except for the booking and service fees. The organization calls for choosing the credit-option as much as possible. A lot of costs have already been made regarding the 2020 & 2021 editions and this way they can be partially bridged. By the end of June at the latest, ticket holders can expect an email about all the practical arrangements.

Then there is only one thing left to do: keep following the measures taken by the government in the coming weeks and get vaccinated. That way we can enjoy the summer with friends and family as soon as possible.

In this way we want to express our sympathy to everyone who has become a victim of the consequences of the coronavirus. And we also want to give a big ‘shout-out’ to all Rock Herk fans who are active in healthcare and other essential professions!

Keep it safe and take care of each other. ❤️

Rock Herk Team
