Why is Horst Arts & Music Festival 2020 postponed?

We would have loved nothing more than to be with you this September. However, during ongoing discussions with our team and City officials, it became obvious that this year’s Horst Arts & Music Festival would have to be postponed to September 10, 11 & 12 in 2021. Obviously, this is not the situation that any of us had hoped for, but the well-being, health, and safety of everyone involved remains our first priority.

I can’t make it to Horst Festival 2021 (Sept 10-11-12), what should I do?

If for a particular reason, you can't come to the festival in 2021, we will reschedule your ticket to the 2022 edition.

I had already booked travel and/or accommodation for Horst Festival 2020, can I get a refund?

Horst is not responsible for travel or accommodation. We recommend getting in touch with the companies you booked with.

Impact on the Lab

Due to the Covid-19 measures the Lab will be organised in a different way. The Lab will be divided into bubbles of up to maximum fifty people, including participants and coaches. These groups will each form separate social bubbles during the Lab week. All activities will be organised within this social bubble. Groups won't be put together, except in situations where a larger group is allowed because of social distance (1.5 meter) measures. Within this bubble participants and coaches don't need to wear a face mask.

You are not allowed to take part:

- If you are sick.
- If you have been sick in the 5 days leading up to the Lab.
- If you belong to a high-risk group.

Horst will make sure that everything is clean, there will be sanitizing gel and we'll make sure that indoor spaces will be aired out frequently.

Regarding travel regulations and restrictions we advise to look into the measures taken by your own specific government and act accordingly.
