EMM is postponed

Hope died last..

We’re really sorry to inform you: Eindhoven Metal Meeting is not allowed to happen this year and thus has to be moved again

New date: Friday 9th & Saturday 10th of December 2022

We’ve got no clue yet who will perform, but we’ll for sure do our very best to present you a killer line-up again. We just need some time to get things re-confirmed and/or newly booked.
Your tickets for the postponed 2020 and/or 2021 edition remain valid for next year’s edition.

Ticketmaster will get in touch with you shortly anyhow, as there will also be a cashback and a donation- option, which both will be active until the 12th of January 2022.
We herewith thank everyone involved.

So the fans, the bands, the bookers, the managements and last but not least our loyal volunteers + Effenaar crew who worked together with us on the endless pre-productions.

THANK YOU for your support,
Roman & the EMM team

Line-up update

Our final festival poster is here! Unfortunately Final Breath can’t make it, but we’re excited to have Slaughterday as replacement.

Unfortunately, we also have some bad news. We’ve been informed that Frank Mullen unfortunately will not be able to make it to Eindhoven Metal Meeting. So Suffocation will still perform an exclusive European performance, but with their current, also very strong line-up.

Frank writes: “Hello my friends – so unfortunately I was looking forward to playing the Eindhoven Metal Festival in December but due to the pandemic that we faced and flight restrictions and the like it is with sadness my friends that I will not be able to attend the festival. I hope you can all understand and still come to support the rest of the guys in Suffocation as they will still come to play for you. Take care my friends and stay brutal I wish things could have worked out.”

We’re all waiting now till December 4th to hear if this year’s edition is allowed to happen. Fingers crossed and thanks for your massive support!

Covid-19 update

Dear bands, fans & media,

Things are getting complicated and on our nerves, but we just decided to wait until the 4th of December, before knowing if and how our festival can happen this year.

As you might have heard from the news, the Dutch government decided on a nationwide lockdown of 3 weeks.

Dramatic for us, as the preparations for EMM have already started 22 months ago. Many flights, luggage, ground transportations and hotel accommodations have been booked. Also local staff is hired, volunteers instructed, backline rented and even some of our festival’s merchandise has already been ordered. Many of you already booked their flights & hotel as well, so we’re more than just eager to continue here as planned.

The current pandemic measurements however make proper planning impossible and we now have to wait 3 more weeks until we know more. In case you can’t make it anymore, best to sell your ticket via Ticketswap.com.

Moving the event again obviously became an option as well, but it’s not our first choice and if we do so, we strongly prefer to get this upcoming edition cancelled by the government first. As only then possible compensation payments might apply.

Making things happen THIS YEAR however, is our absolute priority.

We’ll up-date you as soon as there’s any news.

Thank you for your patience & support,
The EMM team
