Dark, forward thinking music with an attitude in one of the world’s most fascinating cultural locations, the legendary, natural Cave of Balve (“Balver Höhle”) in the heart of Germany. Prophecy Fest in the label’s 25th anniversary year is proudly announcing a birthday party and opening ceremony on Thursday, September 9.
Prophecy Fest can also gladly announce that the festival’s hygiene concept has again been approved by the competent authorities and is in correspondence with the latest “Corona regulation of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia” from August 17.Prophecy Fest is therefore still on course to take place under the current Coronavirus Acteffective until September 17.
We are working at full steam on the running order for Friday and Saturday, September 10/11 and will inform you about the complete programme as soon as possible.
On Thursday, September 9, PROPHECY FEST will celebrate the 25th anniversary of PROPHECY PRODUCTIONS in style with an outdoor birthday bash at a location within walking distance to the Cave of Balve and the camping area. The label will provide free beer and free food as long as stocks last – but you will also be allowed to bring your own beverages and snacks.
It is impossible to have a proper bonfire without acoustic music, which will kindly be provided courtesy of NEUN WELTEN, VRÎMUOT as well as MOSAIC and ZWISCHENLICHTEN performing “Nordwald Music”.
Covid-19-restrictions by the authorities mandate that all party guests will have to wear their official festival wristbands in order to attend. Prophecy Fest will therefore open the booths to exchange tickets for festival wristbandson Thursday 9 as early as 12.00 at noon to avoid queues.
Martin Koller comments: “We sincerely hope that everybody is looking forward to the Prophecy Production birthday party on the Thursday of the festival as much as we do”, says the label founder. “It has been extremely difficult to create a final running order due to the many complications created by the pandemic. Thankfully cooperation and communications with the local competent authorities have been excellent and most helpful. We are working hard to present you with the final programme as soon as possible. In the meantime, we ask your for your understand in this difficult situation and a little more patience.”
In additional news, the competent authorities have updated their pandemic requirements for visitors. The most important change for everybody who is not fully vaccinated or able to provide valid documentation of having recovered from an infection with Covid-19 is now legally required to present a valid negative Covid-19 PCR test (quick antigen tests are no longer sufficient) that is not older than 48 hours prior to the official festival start on Thursday, September 9 at 12:00 noon. Furthermore, the wearing of face masks on site is at present no longer mandatory.
