The festival states that all tickets for the 2020 edition will be valid for 2021, and any tickets for the campsite and the night buses purchased directly through the Roadburn site or Ticketmaster (or are valid for 2021.

Roadburn 2021 aims to have the same lineup as 2021. Roadburn 2020 was masterfully curated by Emma Ruth Rundle and James Kent (Pertubator), and was set to feature such great performances as the reunited Red Sparowes; Artists in Residence Full Of Hell and Lingua Ignota; Primitive Man playing their 2017 album Caustic in full, as well as a second set; Primitive Man vocalist Ethan McCarthy's noise project Many Blessings; Full Of Hell guitarist Spencer Hazard's new band Eye Flys; Cult Of Luna guitarist and vocalist Johannes Persson and Perturbator, and way more.


Firstly, we want to apologise for the lack of communication – we know you have questions and we’re doing our absolute best to get answers to you as soon as possible

The next edition of Roadburn will take place 15-18 April, 2021. Tickets purchased for the 2020 edition will remain valid – you do not need to do anything at this time, just hold on to those tickets and show up next April. Our aim is to preserve as much of the line up as possible – we will be talking to bands over the coming weeks to re-confirm bookings, but things are looking positive on that front.

Tickets for the campsite and the night busses (i.e anything you bought direct, via, and are also automatically transferred to April 2021 too.

We request just a little bit more patience for more detailed information. We know uncertainty is stressful, so we are working diligently to get you accurate information as quickly as possible, however, Roadburn is part of a complex industry that is in turmoil at the moment. We are part of a huge group of organisations, venues and others who are awaiting guidance from the Dutch government as to how to proceed. These circumstances are unprecedented in a legal, financial and logistical sense for the whole entertainment industry.

As we said previously, this has been a heartbreaking decision for us, taken in the middle of some of the most uncertain times that the live music industry has seen. What we have put in place here is designed to protect and preserve Roadburn as a festival and ensure our ability to function going forward. Whilst the rush to buy tickets on the day they go on sale has become a rite of passage for many, knowing that you’ve already got next year’s ticket in your pocket is hopefully a small silver lining!
