07. August 2021 / Nuclear Power Plant Zwentendorf, Austria

Welcome home again!

The Shutdown Festival, Austria's biggest Harder Styles Festival starts its engines again! Chances are good that Shutdown Festival 2021 will be one of the first, if not THE first festival after the pandemic in Austria! After 2 years of festival abstinence, the festival will finally be back on Saturday, 07 August 2021 on 4 stages and with more than 40 international acts in the worldwide unique location, the nuclear power plant site in Zwentendorf, Lower Austria.

All of the acts of this years edition of Shutdown Festival are already announced! A significant part of the tickets has already been swapped from 2020 to 2021 after last year's cancellation, so some of the tickets, such as the VIP area, are already sold out. Due to the high demand, we recommend you to get your tickets soon, before it's too late.



Shutdown Festival 2021 - Line Up Phase 4: OUT NOW!

Of course you have questions!

That would be a shame, of course, but if that should be the case again, you have the choice: Refund/Swap, either you exchange your ticket for one for Shutdown 2022 or you get the ticket price (excl. service fees) refunded.

The Shutdown Festival works with a decentralised test concept. A negative test result must be presented at the entrance. (Antigen rapid test not older than 24h, PCR test not older than 72h).

In this case we offer an insurance with our partner Booking Protect ( for 6.5% of the ticket price. If you test positive, you will get the ticket price (excl. service fees) refunded. 

No. If there is no legal requirement, there will be no additional vaccination or mask requirement within the site. Of course, we recommend that you wear an MNS to protect yourself and others. Tip: Even before the pandemic, many incorporated an MNS into their festival outfits.

Great - the perfect protection for yourself. People who have already been vaccinated still have to show a negative test because (as of April 2021) it is not yet known whether an infection of others is still possible.
