Boom 2022 Artists Cancellations

Names & statements from artists who'll no longer be present at the 25th anniversary edition.

For reasons that go beyond the organisation's control, some artists have had to cancel their acts for Boom 2022. Unforeseen events happen and the Covid-19 pandemic has mirrored this irrefutable truth. It has brought us inevitable changes on a global, but also personal, scale. The world has changed; the lives of each of us, in one way or another, too.

And that means changes and cancellations in our program as well. Please check below the artists (and their statements) that will no longer be present at the 25th anniversary edition of Boom Festival.

  • Bluetech // The Gardens

“The music industry has gone through a massive shift because of Covid-19 basically destroying all touring income and making it next to impossible to survive as a musician. I have taken a full time job with a company and no longer have the freedom or days off to travel to Europe to play a gig”.

Statement by the artist

  • Drrtywulvz // The Gardens

"Nothing is the same as before. Europe schedule cancelled. Flight tickets prices have risen lately even more over the Russian Ukraine conflict (…)”.

Statement by Drrtywulvz team

  • Fabio Leal // Alchemy Circle

Statement by the artist

  • Farebi Jalebi // Dance Temple 

“Farebi Jalebi and wife got pregnant and their first baby will come in the summer, so he cancelled his travel to Europe”.

Statement by the artist’s manager

  • Fideles // Alchemy Circle

“Fideles changed booking agency and their management wants them to take over all bookings which can not happen before 09/2021. I have to officially cancel this booking and can not confirm the date in 2022”.

Although this is all sad news, we must remember that change is inevitable and that, above all, we must respect each other's choices.
