Are you ready for 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 shifting into a higher gear. The stage is nearly completed, and all over the cave helping hands and crew are busy setting up the festival.
We would like to take the opportunity to give a preview of what happens on arrival. Those, who have registered in advance and uploaded their proof of vaccination or a certificate of having recovered from a Covid-19 infection or a PCR test not older than 48 hours before Thursday 9, 12:00 CEST may proceed directly to the check-in and exchange their tickets for a festival wristband. In addition to the wristband, every guest will receive the Prophecy 25th Anniversary Book & Programme and a cup – on Thursday for the free beer waiting at the party.
Those, who have not registered in advance will first have to join another queue to enter their registration and present their proof of vaccination or recovery or PCR test. Only after registration, guests can proceed to the check-in. We therefore strongly recommend to register in advance to avoid delays and queues.
As previously announced, Prophecy Fest will provide online streaming covering the entireindoor part of the festival taking place in the Cave of Balve. Streaming is free, but those who want to contribute a donation are welcome to do so. Those, who donate 40 Euro or more will receive a copy of the Prophecy 25th Anniversary Book.
Online streaming will start at 12:00 CEST on Friday, September 10. The live stream will be filmed from multiple camera angles and edited and broadcast in real time. Festival streaming will be offered on various platforms and can be accessed via the following website: https://fest.prophecy.de
Prophecy Fest is on course to take place under the current Coronavirus Acteffective until September 17. Tickets are limited to 999 festival passes, of which a few are are still a few available that will be sold online until Thursday 9, 11:30 CEST. If any tickets remain after this deadline, they will be offered at the ticket booth in front of the Balver Cave, but registration rules will fully apply and the required documents will have to be presented.
As recently shared, Prophecy Productions will offer local PCR testing at the Cave of Balve on Thursday, September 9, from 12:00 to 16:30 CEST as a service for festival visitors (as mandated by the official authorities for all those guests that cannot provide official documents about either being fully vaccinated or a recovery from a Covid-19 infection). The label is subsidising these local tests that will therefore be offered for only 20 Euros per visitor. Results will be provided before the festival begins indoors on Friday, September 10. It will be possible for all ticket-holders including those waiting for their test results to attend the outdoor birthday party on Thursday, 9. Only one PCR test that either must not be older than 48 hours prior to the start of the event (Thursday, September 9) or the local PCR test is required – and one PCR test will be valid for the duration of the entire festival. Those fully vaccinated or recovered do not need a PCR test.
The festival’s hygiene concept and the confirmed official rules can be found in the current version of the festival’s Pandemic FAQ, which is provided below and online: https://fest.prophecy.de. Pleaseread the FAQ to ensure the health and safety of visitors, bands, and crew.
