We don’t need to remind you all how tough it’s been for live music over the past two years and we have been enjoying seeing live music return in the form of open air festivals and smaller venues.
As the live scene has been opening up, we’ve been following closely and monitoring guidance from the government. Unfortunately, despite many shows going ahead, we’ve made the decision to postpone Power Metal Quest Fest to 2022.
There are a number of factors that have led us to reach this decision. Although the coronavirus has been a contribution to this, the biggest issue we have faced is Brexit. Travel restrictions and quarantine are still in place for many countries. And with numerous international bands on our bill we have to consider the additional costs and delays that Visa’s and carnets bring.
Although we could have gone ahead with our planned event, we’d have had to make significant changes to the lineup as well as operating at reduced capacity to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our artists, crew and you the fans.
With this, Quest Fest will now take place on Saturday 1st October 2022 and will remain at The Asylum. Those that have already purchased tickets will have theirs automatically rolled over to the new date. Anyone who has purchased a ticket and t-shirt bundle will receive a t-shirt for the new event that can be collected on the day of the show.
We hope that you will continue to help support our independent festival by rolling your ticket over, however refunds will be available on request.
Despite the postponement, we are already planning a special virtual event for you that will include a live Q&A where you will have the opportunity to hang out with us online, ask any questions about the festival and join our community.
We are an independent, not for profit festival with no external backing, so as always we thank you more than ever for your continued support. We hope you’ll continue to keep sharing our posts and spreading the word of our metal community. We can’t wait to return in 2022.
