Ultra Europe, one of the world’s largest electronic music festivals, will not be held this year either, the organizers finally confirmed.
The popular festival was supposed to take place from July 9 to 11 at the Youth Park (Park Mladeži) in Split, but Ultra fans will be denied the summer spectacle in Split this year as well.
The new date of Ultra is July 8-10, 2022.
Ultra Europe has been held in Split for the last eight years, bringing more than 40,000 daily visitors and a total of 120,000 from 143 countries to the Dalmatian capital for three days of electronic music. The 2019 edition was the first held at Park Mladeži in Split, while the festival was held at Poljud Stadium in the years before.
Record figures, and the millionth visitor at the new location, marked the seventh year of Ultra in Split in 2019. The 8th edition was meant to take place at Park Mladeži from July 10-12, 2020, but was also canceled last year.
“It is with a heavy heart that, due to the ongoing pandemic stemming from COVID-19, the 8th edition of Ultra Europe originally scheduled for 10-12 July 2020 at Park Mladeẑi is being rescheduled to 9-11 July 2021.
The current health crisis is an unprecedented situation, and there is no higher priority for us than the health, safety and well-being of all our fans, as well as all those involved with the production of the event.
Tickets will remain valid and will be honored for use at the rescheduled festival. Alternatively, if you are unable to attend, you have the option to seek a refund. All purchasers will be contacted via email with more information on how to make their choice.
As we continue to monitor the ongoing health crisis together with authorities, we encourage our fans to stay home, wash their hands, practice social distancing and be good to one another. We look forward to reuniting next year in beautiful Croatia for Ultra Europe 2021!” the organizers wrote last May.
