Free festival Appelpop is unfortunately also canceled this year. Appelpop 2021 was scheduled for Friday 10 and Saturday 11 September. Appelpop is one of the largest free festivals in the Netherlands. Many tens of thousands of people enjoy many great national and international artists every year on the Waalkade in Tiel. According to organizer Stichting Muziekstad Tiel, the business risk is too great to continue with the preparations for Appelpop 2021, especially because the guarantee fund set up by the government does not apply to free festivals. The next edition of Appelpop is now scheduled for September 9 and 10, 2022.
There is also good news: next year Appelpop will return to a renovated Waalkade in Tiel. Thanks to good consultation with the municipality of Tiel and the efforts of the Municipal Executive, the layout of the site is carried out in such a way that the logistical layout of Appelpop remains guaranteed. The organization and the municipality will stay in touch about the details and adjustments.
“Of course it is a new challenge,” said Chairman Kees Van Keulen. “But in any case, we will return. We started preparing in good spirits and are not going to summer sleep now.
As soon as possible, we will meet again with the same fighting spirit and energy to make plans. We are already looking forward to seeing everyone – loyal volunteers, partners and sponsors, artists, organizers and visitors – again in 2022 and making up for the two lost years! “
It goes without saying that we will keep you informed of all the Appelpop 2022 news at Festivalinfo!
