UP THE HAMMERS FESTIVAL 2021: Νέες ημερομηνίες και line-up


To καθιερωμένο festival το οποίο με την προηγούμενη αναβολή ήταν να διεξαχθεί ως Up The Hammers Combined Edition αυτόν τον Μάρτη, ανακοίνωσε πριν λίγες ώρες από την σελίδα του στο facebook πως λόγω των συνεχιζόμενων δύσκολων συνθηκών που αντιμετωπίζει ολόκληρος ο πλανήτης με την επιδημία του Covid19, το festival θα πάρει ακόμη μια αναβολή και θα μεταφερθεί στον Οκτώβριο του τρέχοντος έτους.

Συγκεκριμένα, οι νέες ημερομηνίες είναι οι 28η Οκτωβρίου (Warm Up show), η 29η Οκτωβρίου (Ημέρα 1η), η 30η Οκτωβρίου (Ημέρα 2η) και η 31η Οκτωβρίου (Ημέρα 3η), ενώ υπάρχει και εναλλακτικός προγραμματισμός στο ενδεχόμενο να εξακολουθήσει να υφίσταται αδυναμία διεξαγωγής του festival τον Οκτώβριο, αυτό να λάβει χώρα τον Μάρτιο του 2022.

“It’s been almost one year since the pandemic outbreak forced us to postpone Up the Hammers 2020. It was a very dark time for the festival and for the bands involved, but your continuing and undivided support gave us renewed strength to make the UTH Combined Edition, which was supposed to take place this March. However once again, the covid situation worldwide makes it impossible to get together once again, like we do almost 15 years now.

It is the same support and confidence that you showed us that makes us want to try even harder, now that everyone needs it the most.

We want to try hard and exhaust all the possibilities to have a festival as soon as possible. Therefore, we decided to give 2021 a chance, and postpone the festival until October.

There is no way we will do a festival that it’s not 100% safe for the fans and for the bands. We know it is a long shot and we know that 2021 is going to be uncertain for festivals. But we also know that if there is a chance to make this happen, we are bound to take it.

In the unfortunate event that we will not be able to make the October festival possible, we have a contingency plan in place for March 2022.

Making a steady line up in this uncertain times is a huge puzzle and we try to do our best to keep all the bands already announced but unfortunately some of the them cant just make it for personal reasons.
Quicksand dream, Gothic stone and Shok Paris had to cancel their appearence and we will try to replace them with the best available options at the time. On the other hand we are very close to Return Scald in the line up and Crypt Sermon are confirmed in case the festival will take place in March.
All bands announced now are also confirmed for the back up plan of March.
All tickets bought are valid for the new dates whenever the festival will take place.

Once again we want to thank each and every one of you, for supporting us and for giving us strength, this means the world.

In this world’s darkest hour
Up the Hammers is here to stay.”
