Freshtival 2021 moved to Pentecost 2022

We feel defeated, sad and exhausted…. The government just announced that multi-day events with camping are banned until at least September 1st. Deeply disappointed, we have to tell you that Freshtival Weekend 2021 is cancelled.

We’ve always said that we would never just give up. That we would go on to the bitter end, no matter what. Because this is what we do, what we live for and what we are good at: creating unforgettable moments. Magical experiences at a festival that 60,000 visitors look forward to for a year, where the word camping is redefined and where artists fly to from all over the world. We’re struggling to accept that all our work was in vain. It feels like the holiday you’ve been looking forward to for two years just got canceled during check-in. All the positive energy you’ve been saving, gone in a few moments. But we keep our chins up, because that is what we can and must do.

We were about to start building. Together with our suppliers, artists, caterers and all freelancers, we have pulled out all reinforcements to get it done this summer. And we were pulling it off.

But also for you, as a Freshtival visitor, this is a huge blow. This was supposed to be your festivalweekend, together with your friends in our colourful world at Het Rutbeek. For a long time all the lights were green. We were giving this all we got, because you deserve it. But, unfortunately, this is the reality that we have to accept…


We are resuming our tradition and thus taking place on Pentecost on 3, 4 and 5 June 2022. As usual, carefree and upside down in our crazy world. Tickets from 2020/2021 will therefore automatically be transferred to 2022. Main ticket buyers will receive an email this week with all the information. Of course we hope to see you again next year with your friends. Because phew, we have some catching up to do with each other.

We’ve lost another battle, but we’ll never give up!

See you soon friends!
