LaP 2021 canceled
The current situation is extremely difficult for everyone: for bands, for you fans and for us promoters.
It is with a heavy heart that we have to cancel the Loud and Proud Festival again this year. Until the end we were confident that it could take place despite Corona. Our hygiene concept was approved up to a certain point and also designed in such a way that we could have held the LaP under halfway normal conditions. This point has now been passed. With the current version of the Corona ordinance (Rhineland-Palatinate), it is no longer possible for us to hold our festival. Our concepts are no longer worthy of approval. We take our responsibility towards you very seriously; your health has priority.
In the USA the situation is similarly precarious and for the bands the current situation is also very unsettling. Some bands have therefore had to cancel.
We asked God for advice and after consultation with the bands and within the board of the association, we came to the decision that we can no longer avoid a cancellation. We ask for your understanding.
For all those who have already bought tickets:
We will handle things the same way as last year. You have 2 options.
- you keep your tickets, which are valid for the LaP 2022.
Please be aware that, according to the current state of things, visitors of the Stadhalle Betzdorf must either be
- fully vaccinated
- fully recovered
- or tested (the test must not be older than 24h)
and be able to provide proof in order to enter the premises.
There are several locations in and around Betzdorf that provide official Covid-19 tests. Please keep in mind that the festival will run for over 24 hours and that we cannot grant entry to individuals whose tests are older than said 24 hours – even on the second day of the festival. In some parts of the premises, wearing an FFP2-mask is required for safety reasons.
We will of course keep you in the loop concerning any changes in regard to Covid-19 regulations at Loud and Proud 2021.
Because the Covid situation is quite difficult to predict and regulations can change anytime, we run the risk of having to cancel the festival after all. Should that be the case, you can use your tickets for the upcoming Loud and Proud 2022. If desired, we will of course refund your tickets.
Here is the CURRENT plan, which band will play on which day on the MAINSTAGE (there might be some changes, but we don't assume that at the moment):
From Shadows To Light
I Am The Deceiver
Drive Thru Society
The Letter Black
Presale has started!
