WMD 2021 POSTPONED TO 2022
In view of the rise in covid-cases in Belgium and the recent new guidelines issued by the government this week, the organization of WMD has decided that there is no alternative but to postpone the 3day-indoor festival.
In order to make an ‘indoor’ event like WMD 100% covid safe, everybody would need to be tested before entering. Including the people who have been fully vaccinated. Furthermore, we learned that mounthmasks for indoor events are to be implemented again and the horeca protocol (= consuming while standing not allowed) is in place..
Needless to say, all of this is putting a strain on all involved: visitors, organization, bands and staff. And it makes it impossible to get our show on the road in the way that was intended, in the way it should be organized.
Taking these aspects into account, and after deliberation with every band involved, we took the difficult decision to postpone WMD 2021 to 2022 (9/10 and 11 December). Taking with us nearly all of the bands and line up we had in 2021 and including Spoil Engine (back), Coffin Feeder, Fleddy Melculy and the incredible Mayhem ! One more surprise will be added the end of January 2022 !
Today at noon, the new timetable (and tickets) will go on sale !
WMD has to be a ‘winter blast’; with no restrictions, no fear, no testing, no infections, no no-shows. Only music & fun.
All tickets are automatically transferred to 2022 and can be found into your Emisys accounts.
We all know this situation is not what we want but we have to put the public health upfront. WMD is not a small club-event, it’s a major festival. We have to act accordingly.
Stay well, stay safe and see you ALL in better conditions in December 2022.
