Germany's EUROBLAST FESTIVAL has become one of the most respected and celebrated international gatherings dedicated to progressive music. Welcoming artists and fans from all over the world, EUROBLAST has become not only an annual pit-stop for enthusiastic fans but also an opportunity for aspiring and established artists alike.
With alumni such as Meshuggah, Devin Townsend, Animals As Leaders, Textures, Sikth and 300+ more brands under our repertoire, we're pushing boundaries every year to select more than 40 of the finest known and unknown national and international bands for our next edition.
Euroblast has seen many ups and downs in the 12 years we have been operational as a festival. We’ve always found a way to keep going, but the fact is that 2020 has crushed everything we’ve worked for up until this point.
It will be incredibly difficult for Euroblast to survive without ticket income and support from the state, whilst all running costs still persist. Our cash flow is non-existent and yet we are still hoping to rise again next year.
Euroblast Festival is a non-profit oriented venture with the sole intention of creating a remarkable experience for Artists, Crew & Visitors alike. Despite what impressions people have about our success, the truth is we have never made a cent from Euroblast. It is a labour of love and we do it because of our love for the music and the family and experience we have built over the years.
The sad reality is that Euroblast Festival is not eligible for any help from the state or government in Germany. This is due to Euroblast not being John & Daniel's main profession or occupation. This means that all the damages incurred to the festival in 2020 have to be completely shouldered by ourselves without any help. The reality is we can't, so we need you, our beloved community to help us!
Many of our regular festival visitors have already approached us and asked if they can help in any way. This is why we have decided to start this crowdfunding campaign. We hope that by doing this, we can overcome this crisis and make 2021 our best Euroblast Festival to date.
We are curious, excited and determined to discover and welcome new artists in 2021. Let’s make sure that we, all together as a family, make this possible!!
We love you,
John, Daniel & the Euroblast Family
