The Press Release:
Festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents has released the following update about their 2020 music festivals:

There are no pre-existing guidelines for what festivals should be doing during this unprecedented time. Like the rest of the music industry, we continue to assess new information and make the best-educated decisions possible. We know you have been anxious for updates from us and we are at a point where we can answer many of your questions about how each of our festivals may be affected by COVID-19.

We are crushed to say that Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple are being canceled due to the governmental restrictions on mass gatherings. We respect these directives and recognize they are in the best interest of the greater good, as well as the health and safety of our fans, musicians, partners, and staff. Before accepting this fate, we worked really hard to try to reschedule the festivals. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts, venue availabilities and a number of other factors out of our control made postponing impossible. Make no mistake, each of these festivals will return in May 2021 bigger and stronger than ever!

70000TONS OF METAL 2021: 10th Anniversary Voyage of The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise Sets Sail from January 7 – 11, 2021

At Sea and in life, unpredictable storms can arise and you have to stand your ground and wait for the high winds to pass. The 70000TONS OF METAL crew did this last year and will once again confront the winds with the loudest Heavy Metal growl imaginable. They are ready for their 10th Anniversary Voyage and together with their trusted Sailors, they are confident that they will guide their ship through any stormy Sea.

A Headbangers Paradise on board a luxury cruise ship… and that for ten years in a row! What to many people seemed like an unlikely and unrealistic combination back in 2011, when 70000TONS OF METAL first set sail, is now 10 sold out events later. This one of a kind festival proves how cruising and Heavy Metal do in fact go hand in hand. Indeed, what’s not to love about enjoying your favorite Heavy Metal bands under the hot Caribbean sun from a jacuzzi with an ice cold beverage in your hand?
