Dear festival goers,
As excited as we were about bringing the first edition of Pitchfork Music Festival Berlin to the Tempodrom, we’re now equally sad to share the news that, due to the evolving Coronavirus situation, we must cancel the festival.
There will be no make-up date, and all ticket buyers will be refunded soon, via the ticket vendors where they were purchased. All ticket buyers who purchased their tickets through tickets.de will be contacted proactively via e-mail.
Even though governmental regulations regarding public events in Berlin thus far are only in place until April 19, we feel it is our responsibility to proactively make this decision now, as above all, the health and safety of all festival-goers, artists, and employees is paramount to us.
Alongside health considerations, we are mindful of restrictions of cross-border travels, which could worsen for international ticket holders.
Pitchfork, Berlin promoters MCT, and all the artists on the lineup have reached this decision together. As saddened as we are to take this step, we hope for your understanding in this exceptional and rather unpredictable situation.
In case of any questions, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Stay healthy and take care of yourself and others!
This spring, Pitchfork Music Festival Berlin presents its inaugural edition with an eclectic weekend at the Tempodrom. After establishing beloved festivals in Chicago and Paris, Pitchfork has assembled a bill of innovators, rising stars, and cult heroes honoring Berlin’s heritage and future as a world-leader in underground culture. The lineup divides into two distinct groups. Friday unites the boldest voices in pop, soul, and R&B today, spanning from Hamburg and Berlin to Oslo, London, and New York. Saturday invites the most adventurous producers and floor-fillers of global electronic music to preside over the Tempodrom dancefloor. In addition to sprawling sounds, attendees can explore a boutique vinyl shop curated by HHV, as well as food stalls from some of the best vendors in the local community.
