Inferno Fest of 2020, which included headliners Kreator and Mayhem has been cancelled. The reason? All public events in Norway are being banned until the end of April due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Organizers of the festival issued the following statement:
“INFERNO 2020 CANCELLED
We are sorry to inform you that Inferno 2020 is cancelled. All public events in Norway are banned until the end of April, and this period might be extended. The health authorities estimate 4-5 months. So, there are no chance that we can make Inferno happen this year.
We would like to thank you all for your support and feedback in this difficult time. We’d also like to thank all our partners, crew and volunteers for all their work and dedication for Inferno 2020.
So, what about next year?
Inferno 2021 will happen. The dates are 1st – 4th of April. So, mark it in your calendars.
We have been in contact with the bands and offered to move their concerts to next year. So far everyone is positive, but of course they will need some time to verify if they are able to. Some of them have already confirmed. We will get back to you with the first confirmations next week.
More good news!
All tickets bought for Inferno 2020 will be valid for 2021.
We will be back! See you all next Easter in Oslo.”
