The last of the festivals BABYMETAL was announced to play has been cancelled. All of them due to the coronavirus pandemic. This festival had its fate sealed earlier today when the Swiss government banned all events with over 1000 people until September, as other countries have done.
The exact date was never confirmed, but the festival was supposed to take place in Interlaken, Switzerland on June 11th-13th.
Ticket information will be shared next week.
This leaves only the 4 solo shows remaining. Though last week the Netherlands had banned all “major public events” until September, meaning it’s unlikely that the Utrecht show will happen. Spain hasn’t made such a ban yet, but it’s not looking good overall .
Full statement from the festival:
Although we put a lot of sweat and heart and soul into the preparation, and although we cannot imagine a summer without loud music in the Bernese Alps, we have to say goodbye to the Greenfield Festival with a heavy heart this year. In these difficult times, the health of our fans and their loved ones is our top priority.
Due to the situation around Covid-19 and the decision of the Swiss Federal Council of 29.04.2020, the Greenfield Festival 2020 will not take place.
Our booking team is anxious to get the musicians of this year’s line-up to perform again next year.
Next week we will communicate detailed information about the whole ticket handling process.
We wish you and your loved ones lots of strength and health (and your neighbors strong nerves with your speakers bumping all the loud, hard music at home), and we’ll see you all at the Greenfield Festival 2021 from June 3rd to 5th 2021 in Interlaken on the airfield.
