Sadly, most events are still cancelled due to the coronavirus and of course this also includes festivals. This is exactly why 13 festivals from all over Europe have joined together to form the European Metal Festival Alliance to enable a festival to still take place – at least online.
Soon you will be able to watch videos of past live shows for free on the website. In addition, you also have the opportunity to watch exclusive live streams during the actual festival from 07-09.08.2020. Here’s how it works: Each festival chooses a couple of bands who will stream 45-minute live sessions from a secret location. You can buy a “Festival Pass” for these shows for €6.66. This gives you access to streams from over 35 metal bands from all over Europe - from home.
You can stream the shows exclusively on the EMFA website during the festival and then watch them online for another four days. If you have a Festival Pass, you will also get a discount on the EMFA "Rebooting for 2021" T-shirt, which helps support the industry throughout Europe. During the festival you can of course also buy merch from your favourite bands. Here, too, all the proceeds go to the bands. You can look forward to festivals like Summer Breeze and Party.San from Germany and Bloodstock Festival from the UK, with bands like Butcher Babies and Primordial. So get ready for a festival weekend in the comfort of your own home and do something good by joining in, so we can rock the festivals in person again soon!
