We know you’ve all been waiting for some news about Glitch Festival 2021. We remain hopeful.
The vaccination program in Malta is gaining momentum and has encouraging results. The country is vaccinating at one of the highest rates in the world. We are also very encouraged with the announcement made last week by the Deputy Prime Minister & Minister for Health Dr. Chris Fearne, stating that the country is on course to achieve herd immunity by the end of June with the whole population vaccinated by mid August.
Contrary to what has been reported in the local media, no green light has been given for mass events yet from the responsible authorities. However, we strongly believe that at some point in summer, Malta will be deemed safe for live events to return. As we have previously stated, nothing is set in stone, and that’s exactly why we offer a refund guarantee to all our customers, with an option to keep their tickets for the rescheduled dates – in case of cancellation or postponement due to Covid-19.
A festival of this magnitude requires months and years of work & preparation. Glitch Festival’s 2021 edition has been rescheduled since May 2020. We have to be fully prepared and ready to open when it’s deemed safe to do so. Anyone in the events industry can vouch for this. We condemn any misinformation that has put our festival and the entertainment industry in a bad light. This will not stand.
Unfortunately the local authorities have not been able to give a tentative time frame or roadmap for a safe re-opening. For this reason we have to wait a little longer for some clarity on the summer ahead, before we can announce our 2021 lineup.
Thank you – Our loyal fanbase, everyone that has stood by us in these turbulent times in one way or another. We look forward to seeing you soon, we will dance again.
