Paradise City will not take place in 2020 and will be postponed to June 25, 26 & 27 2021. Although this decision was to be expected, we are heartbroken! We had so many beautiful surprises prepared for you, but sadly the Covid-19 crisis does not allow for Paradise City to take place. Our society is confronted with one of the greatest challenges of our lifetime, and public health is now the priority.
Since the start of the crisis, we have been looking at other dates later this year, but we’ve concluded that we cannot make any compromises on Paradise City. That’s why we prefer to focus all our efforts on 2021 in order to give you the best festival experience possible while maintaining our commitment to limit our environmental footprint.
To be honest this is a very tough blow for our organization, partners and volunteers. It will be a difficult year, as our income will simply evaporate. We realize this crisis will also take its financial toll on many citizens. But our community is strong, and we hope we can rely on your support.
Paradise City has always been and will always be about hope for a better and sustainable future. As a society we need to come better out of this. It is clear, we are all connected, and solidarity will be essential to tackle Covid-19 and other future challenges. Also, the crucial role of culture is at risk, so don’t forget to support your cultural spaces. Let’s ensure there is this joyful and rich life to go back to when this is all over.
Of course, all tickets will stay valid for next year and you can find all the info & possibilities regarding your ticket in our FAQ’s.
TO MAKE SURE WE MINIMIZE OUR IMPACTS, WE HAVE SET A 10 STEPS PROCESS REGARDING OUR ENERGY USE, THE FOOD WE OFFER, THE WATER CONSUMED, THE WASTE PRODUCED, THE TRANSPORT MEANS TO ATTEND THE FESTIVAL AND FINALLY OUR CITIZEN’S AWARENESS.
Any gathering of a large number of people can have a potential negative impact on air, soil, water, resources and people. This includes not only the location where the event takes place but also the impacts beyond. We are conscious about this and have taken sustainability planning into consideration since day one. We are very proud to have been selected as 1 of the 6 most sustainable festivals in the world by A Greener Festival last year and we still want to do better. We promise to minimize the potential negative impacts and to implement even more ecologically mindful ways to enjoy Paradise City Festival.more info →
