Four years ago, we had a dream. To bring the big festivals’ atmosphere closer to you. To see and listen to our favourite artists here, at home. To put Iași on the international map of entertainment.
Thanks to you we succeeded. We’ve been together in large numbers since our first edition, and, in 2019, our community exceeded 110,000 participants.
You believed in Afterhills and you vibed with the artists on the stages, so we owe you everything: our energy, confidence and strength to overcome all obstacles.
Our first edition was marked by thunderstorms and we proved we can deal with almost everything, but no one could anticipate what 2020 would bring. This pandemic affected our lives, reshaped our plans, and kept us away from family, friends, dear places, and many of our passions.
Hoping for a #happyend, we remained optimistic and continued to work during the last 12 months, to prepare this year’s event. It has also been a good opportunity to reflect on our limits and be grateful for everything we have built and lived in the past years.
We followed the news about the progress of this epidemic and the government’s decisions, and we waited as long as we could, but the time has come to make our final decision: Afterhills 2020 cannot take place in its dedicated format, with social distancing and limited attendance.
We have a major responsibility towards the team, artists, and, above all, towards you, who have purchased tickets and waited for this festival edition with so much excitement. Health comes first, and we will do everything to successfully overcome this pandemic and regather next year. See you back at Afterhills 2021 / We’ll meet again at Afterhills 2021!
We are already working on the next year’s edition, and we promise that it will be worth waiting for it. We build a new concept with exquisite activities, and we already have big international artists on our list. Together, we will write a completely new and spectacular story for Iași.
It will be a challenge to surprise you and make you feel the good vibes and fun, while keeping up with the new safety measures. We took this challenge because we know that everything will be great as long as you, the Afterhills community, stand by us. The Afterhills 2021 edition will make history!
We can hardly wait to meet again, to hug each other happily, to smile with no masks on our faces, and to party all night long, like in the good old days!
All the tickets already purchased for the 2020 edition automatically become tickets valid for the 2021 edition. Those who, for various reasons, cannot attend the Afterhills 2021 edition, may get a ticket refund, according to the details published on www.afterhills.com, the official website of the event. We are keeping in close contact with the authorities, and we will get back to you soon with more details, the line-up and the new date of the sound & safe 2021 festival.
Thank you for your friendship and support!
