NEW DATES: 2nd and 3rd July 2021
TRIPPIE REDD, BURNA BOY, SAINt JHN, PIRUKA, NENNY ALREADY CONFIRMED TO THE NEW DATES
Sumol Summer Fest is always synonymous with celebration, the beach, the sun, friends and Music. We are the festival that marks the beginning of your summer holiday and brings you the freedom to be yourself! This year we are all facing a challenge that requires us to look after one another. More responsible, more caring and more attentive. This challenge is also demanding us to do what we hoped we would never have to do – to postpone the 12th edition of Sumol Summer Fest to 2021.
Aware of the uncertainty of current days, we have been closely following the development of the unprecedented situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, that put the world in a context that we had never lived before. Out of respect and responsibility towards our audience and the thousands of professionals involved in making the festival – artists, technical and production teams, our sponsors and partners, and all our staff -, we held on without giving up for as long as possible and continued to work hard for the dates originally planned.
The bill by the Portuguese government to ban large summer festivals taking place this year was passed by the Portuguese Parliament. Therefore, it is with great sadness that we, as is the case with many other festivals both in Portugal and around the world, are forced to postpone the 12th edition of Sumol Summer Fest to the 2nd and 3rd of July, 2021. Due to force majeure, in full compliance with the guidelines from the competent authorities and for the safety and the wellbeing of our audience and everyone involved in the Festival, our top priority. To all of them our heartfelt thanks.
Tickets that have already been purchased will be valid for the new dates without the need to exchange or issue new tickets. We are always available to clarify any questions and we are now waiting for the Decree-law resulting from the discussion in the specialty by the Portuguese Parliament, to be able to give further information.
From the first edition and throughout each year, we put our heart and soul into organizing those days when music brings us together and fills our hearts. That is how we will continue, stronger and more motivated than ever, to make next year’s 12th edition one of the best ones yet. And we can now reveal that Trippie Red, Burna Boy, SAINt JHN, Piruka and Nenny announced for 2020 are confirmed for the new dates in 2021! We will bring you more news soon.
For now, follow all the guidelines of the health authorities, stay positive, stay strong and stay safe. The five-star home of Sumol Summer Fest in Ericeira north of Lisbon will be ready to welcome us and together welcome the summer holiday!
