VISITOR INFORMATION

Shutdown Festival takes place

Update: 25th March 2020

Dear Shutdown visitors,

the prohibition on outdoor events with more than 500 people, which was announced on 10 March at a press conference of the Austrian Federal Chancellery, initially limited until the beginning of April, has been supplemented by a number of important measures in Austria, Europe and the whole world in recent days, which should help to bring the current state under control. We are monitoring the situation and have complete confidence in the experts responsible and are, of course, implementing the measures to protect the population. 

Especially in times like these, it is only possible if we all pull together! Let´s all help so that the situation becomes calmer, the number of infections decreases, lives can be saved and normality can return.

Music unites, that's what it has always done! And music will continue to do so in the future and contribute to the fact that there is a community, even in bad times! What we have learned over the years as Shutdown Festival is, that most things are most beautiful together! However, we also have a responsibility, a responsibility for you visitors, for our employees, for suppliers, for the location, for DJs and artists and also one towards the whole society. From the current perspective, we still assume that Shutdown Festival can take place in August 2020, but this will only happen if Shutdown can be held safely and health is guaranteed.

Ticket transparency: In case of an officially ordered cancellation of the event due to coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2, we will refund the purchase price of the tickets in accordance with the regulations of our houserules & terms and conditions.

We would like to thank everyone who, in the current situation, are committed to others far beyond their own limits, who sacrifice themselves and do a great job! We wish you all good health, all those who have fallen sick a speedy recovery. Colleagues, clubs, musicians, artists, DJs, suppliers, local organisations etc. that they survive this time in good health, but also that they'll take the cancellations economically well and come back in full strength next year!

Yours Shutdown Team️

Shutdown Festival takes place

Dear Shutdown visitors,

on 10 March 2020, in a press conference, the Federal Chancellery of Austria announced that outdoor events with more than 500 people are not allowed to take place until the beginning of April due to the current situation around the so-called "coronavirus" or "COVID-19". According to this, the Shutdown Festival 8th of August 2020 is not affected, so we currently assume that the festival will take place as planned and that the virus no longer will be a big issue in August.

We are constantly monitoring the situation, trusting the responsible experts completely and, of course, we are implementing the measures to protect the population as far as they concern us.

We will do everything and try to ensure that Shutdown takes place safely and healthily.  

In case of an official cancellation of the event because of the Coronavirus or COVID-19, we will refund the purchase price of the tickets according to the regulations of our houserules & terms and conditions.

We hope that our guests are in good health, and we wish those affected a speedy recovery! Additionally, we wish clubs, football clubs and our colleagues from Tomorrowland and Ultra (which should have taken place later this month), but also the suppliers and the local organizations that they´ll take the cancellations economically well and come back in full strength next year!

Yours Shutdown Team️
