Summer Darkness Festival takes a sabbaticalPosted on 11/02/14
The Dutch festival Summer Darkness will not take place in the Summer of 2014. In a message on the festival's website the organization says that "after 11 successful editions of the largest Dutch dark underground lifestyle festival it is time for a moment of reflection." And they continue by saying that the festival has always had an eye for innovation, "but innovation obviously doesn’t just happen, the festival will now take an extra year to find new interpretations for innovation." There are several conditions that made the organization decide to do so. In the summer of 2014, the Dom Square, the heart of the festival with the market, stage and terrace, is unavailable due to excavations. Add to this that the German Amphi Festival decided to move their fest to the last weekend of July, which for years has been the fixed festival weekend of Summer Darkness.
In further news, Summer Darkness also says its farewell to the Tivoli Oudegracht as location with the winter edition, which is set for February 21st with Hocico, Aesthetic Perfection, Faderhead, Terrolokaust, Winterkaelte and special guest Johan van Roy of Suicide Commando.
Note that the various Summer Darkness presents concerts, like May 18th Näo, Puin + Hoop & Distel and June 14th The Cruxshadows, and the dark undergound club night Cyberia will continue.
