The Neversea Festival has been postponed for 2022, the organizers announced. They argued that the decision had been taken as the time was too short for the beach event to be held amid the current pandemic conditions.
The announcement comes after, in May, the organizers said that Neversea, which was due in July on the beach in Constanţa, will be rescheduled this year, but without advancing once.
According to a message posted on Facebook on Friday, “due to the extremely short time for organizing the festival in the current pandemic conditions, we had to take the most difficult decision so far. After a careful analysis of our options, including moving to Neversea for autumn, we decided not to force anyone to compromise on their experience – be it a spectator, a member of the technical team or an artist.”
The organizers say they “did everything they could (and even more)” for the event to take place this year, but they had to give up.
Those who have already bought tickets for Neversea 2021 will be informed by email about their options, the message also says.
Prime Minister Florin Cîțu has repeatedly said that, although some of the restrictions have been lifted as of June 1, major festivals, such as Untold and Neversea, will most likely be held after August 1.
In May, the organizers of the Electric Castle Festival announced that the event will not take place this year either, the eighth edition being postponed for 2022.
The only big festival in Romania that will take place this year is Untold, set for September.
