shutdown FESTIVAL

7th of August 2021, AKW Zwentendorf, Austria

The long abstention will move historical events. 7th of August 2021 will go down in the history of the Harder Styles. It will be an unforgettable Saturday of which we will tell our whole life long. The first Shutdown Festival after this challenging time will unite us even more and we will unleash this infinite force again.

We will continue to work on developing and improving Shutdown Festival, including stage concepts. All further information about Shutdown 2021 and the line-up will be presented as you are used to over time.

Questions we received the most...

Shutdown Festival 2021 #InfiniteForce takes place on Saturday, 7th August 2021, as usual at the unique nuclear power plant in Zwentendorf.

Basically no, as in previous years, there are different Early Bird phases, i.e. price levels, which are calculated in such a way that there is no advantage from refunds and new purchases. The final price for festival passes will not be raised and remains the same!

No, not at all! The price phases (Loyalty, Pre-Registration) that have been active for SD20 so far will be adjusted for SD21. In addition, the service fee that is charged by our ticket provider would then be paid twice. The exchange of the SD20 into an SD21 ticket is in any case the most financially attractive option.

We, as well as the majority of you, were very happy with the SD20 line up. We will try to take the positive aspects of the line up into the year 2021. We can't guarantee if the line up will be 100% the same, but we guarantee 100% that the line up will have at least the same quality as the SD20 line up. The genres, as they would have been represented in 2020, will be maintained or possibly extended.

Although we are constantly working on further development, the mainstage will of course remain an elementary part of Shutdown as in the last years.

The division of the festival area is still in progress. As in the last years we will constantly try to improve the quality, comfort and practicability for you - so changes through this process may occur. However, we basically assume that little or nothing will change in the division of the festival area.
