In view of the currently existing restrictions in connection with the corona pandemic and the effects that have already occurred on the artistic rehearsal work of the ensembles involved, we had to make a heavy-hearted decision to cancel the Eichstätt 2020 music festival. We comment on the reasons in our press release.
Purchased tickets can of course be canceled and returned. The deadline for this is May 31, 2020. If you bought your ticket online, Reservix will allow you to return it over the Internet. If you bought your ticket at a ticket agency, please contact the ticket agency where you bought the ticket. However, we ask that you keep your purchased tickets and donate the ticket price if possible. This makes it possible to pay the ensembles participating in the music festival a cancellation fee, especially since a lot of preparatory work has already been done. In addition, solo musicians work almost exclusively, particularly in the field of early music, whose livelihoods are directly threatened by the corona shutdown and cannot compensate for the current failures through teaching.
The next music festival Eichstätt will take place from 6th to 9th May 2021. As part of the ongoing program planning, it is currently being examined which concerts from the 2020 music festival can be postponed to the coming year. We will publish information on this here as soon as possible.
