New Metal Festival update!
We share this news with you with a heavy heart; The New Metal Festival is gone forever.
Another festival we are forced to retire to forever due to the impact of a covid pandemic.
There are several reasons for this decision;
- The unpredictable situation related to covid-19 forced us to let go of the idea of organizing this, for all Metal newcomers, especially important festival.
Since we cannot predict the epidemiological situation for the next festival season, and at the same time we have been unofficially told by Authorities that 10 days festival won’t be allowed in 2022, we have no other option left.
Also, from the experience that we have make with MetalDays - The Weekend of Solace, we are not in a position to organize a festival that lasts 10 days.
We all know that the New Metal Festival happens right before the MetalDays festival, and it just adds additional days to the MetalDays experience.
The logistics around testing/vaccinating/recovery are simply too complicated, and that’s why we decided to shorten the festival.
- Construction works for the bypass road will start this year already, and at the moment we have absolutely no idea how our venue will look like. All the contract were signed one week ago, and they will soon proceed with the works on site.
So far, we haven’t get any official answer to our questions, so we have no idea what this means in terms of festival production.
The most important thing for us is a safe and stress-free experience for our visitors, and that is why we are 100% behind this difficult decision.
MetalDays 2022 will be held on July, 24-30. 2022, as planned, but no "Early Arrival” will be possible, nor tolerated, due to the reasons listed above.
Please respect this and don't show up early, as you will be prevented from entering the camp/festival ground.
This is not our wish, it is a necessity, and needs no arguing.
If you still need to spend more time in Tolmin, we kindly advise you to look for accommodation outside of the festival area.
Anyone who requested a replacement or refund for New Metal Festival tickets will be contacted, and the ticket money will be refunded to you.
