We hope you are continuing to remain safe and well during these challenging times. If you have been able join us via our Virtual Festivals, it has been our pleasure to connect with you, albeit virtually. To be able to reach millions around the world from the safety of our homes is an incredible feeling. The response has been overwhelming. Thank you.
These are clearly difficult times and we will continue to be transparent in our decisions relating to our events. Our events and festivals are where we come together with you, where we unite on the dancefloor. The culmination of everything we aspire to do at Defected. The decision to change events is not one we take lightly; we do so with your safety and worldwide national health services in mind.
Defected Croatia is very much the pinnacle of our year. It’s the one event that brings together our global community, we understand it’s a huge commitment to travel and attend an event for 6 days and how much it is anticipated, not only by you, but also by our DJs, artists, performers and staff. It is very much with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone the festival from 2020 to 2021 (5th to 10th August 2021 – dates confirmed).
We will continue to support and protect our community, staff and DJs, ensuring we play our part in keeping the world’s population as safe as we possibly can through our actions. Therefore this decision is made with everyone’s best interest in mind and is of course completely inevitable given the circumstances.
We hope that all ticket buyers opt for an exchange of ticket, although refunds will be made available. We also hope that you simply defer your travel from 2020 to 2021 so we can all party together as originally planned, albeit 12 months later. We are informed that this announcement will give you the time and opportunity to obtain vouchers for your flights up to and including 31st December 2021, and that selected accommodation may entertain a change of date (please contact your accommodation provider directly). If you do experience complications with exchanging flights or accommodation, please email your ticketing company, airline, accommodation provider or email@example.com to request a refund on your festival ticket. We hope to see you in 2021 in the sunshine at The Garden Resort.
Stay safe, stay indoors and we’ll see you on the other side!
