After all the bad news about yet another festival that is canceled due to corona, there is now also good news to report: After an absence of eight years, the festival returns Rock Ternat is back with a vengeance!
With the return of the festival, they also return to where it all started, namely on the grounds of Sportcentrum Ternat.
After a long absence, the festival organizer started to itch again and so it happened that another edition of the festival is on the agenda. On August 27 and 28 the festival should take place in the Belgian municipality of Ternat (under the smoke of Brussels), with the corona measures in force at that time. In addition, the festival takes into account three scenarios:
1 – The situation is bad, which makes it a small-scale festival for up to 400 people on August 28 only.
2 – The situation is reasonably under control and a festival can be organized in a safe way. This means there is room for 1000 people per festival day.
3 – The situation is well under control and there is room for 1500 people on Friday and 3000 people on Saturday.
The organization of Rock Ternat pulled the plug from the festival in 2013 after 22 years after it turned out to be no longer financially feasible and the organization faced setbacks.
Nothing is known yet about the programming of the next edition, except that only bands from Belgium will perform. Nothing is known about ticket sales and ticket prices either.
