After much speculation in the recent months and just two weeks before the event was scheduled to take place, amidst much uncertainty, the organizers of Ultra Europe have finally confirmed what has been unofficially reported by Slobodna Dalmacija, the most popular Dalmatian daily newspaper, almost a full month ago: that Ultra Europe Music Festival, which was scheduled to take place at Park Mladeži in Split on July 9, 10 and 11 is officially and definitely CANCELLED.
After several major music festivals in Croatia have already cancelled their scheduled events in the early spring, the management of Ultra Europe have until now remained completely silent on the issue, choosing to play the waiting game with the Croatian authorities.
In today’s press release, Ultra Europe announced that their 2021 event will not take place this year and that the eight edition of the festival is officially rescheduled for July 8, 9 and 10 of 2022. The management promised to keep the tickets purchased for the 2020/2021 event valid for use for the 2022 festival.
Though the management has yet again reiterated their promise of refunding tickets to those unable or unwilling to attend the festival next year, their social media pages have been full with comments from unhappy Ultranauts who are claiming that they still have not received refunds filled after the cancellation of the 2020 event.
As we have previously warned, the Ultra Europe management have remained notoriously quiet on all social media since cancelling their 2020 event, with Ultra Europe’s social media accounts coming to a total halt back in August 2020 which, together with the lack of any lineup announcements, provoked waves of criticism from displeased fans who had not appreciated the recent lack of transparency.
Whether the festival can bounce back from this PR nightmare, remains to be seen in 2022.
