Today, at 4pm, the National Health department of Sweden has decided to ban all events/ gatherings above 500 people in the wake of the Corona Virus (COVID-19).
Challenging times for all involved in the entertainment industry globally and we unfortunately are not spared as our capacity exceeds the limit allowed by Swedish law.
Regrettably we have to postpone The Abyss Festival and we have decided to give some time for this to run its course. We are looking at rescheduling The Abyss Festival for Autumn around November. Exact dates coming soon. On a positive note, due to overwhelming support from you guys we are pleased to announce that we are going to add more bands to the roster!
We have been informed today, that flight companies are refunding tickets or giving out vouchers valid for up to 1 year. Hotels can be re-booked for a later date. So please contact the customer services and hotels and make these arrangements if you don’t already have travel insurance.
We really hope you understand our predicament and are willing to attend The Abyss Festival as soon as we can have a firm date fixed. Our sincerest apologies for everyone affected. Bands and fans alike.
PRE-PARTY SHOW at The Abyss will still take place and there will be another for the postponed date.
Your support for The Abyss and the underground metal scene is exceptional! Keep up the good fight! We will return!
Sincerely – the Abyss Festival Team & Crew.
Maja, Jonas, Marco, Madde, Anton
