Due to the consequences of the pandemic, MetalDays 2021 is canceled.
As of now Slovenian Government has not provided any sufficient information if larger events will be allowed or not in Slovenia this summer. At the moment, gatherings to 50 people only are allowed, and this left us with no better option.
Even though we are sorry, it is a relief to be able to provide a clarification to everyone who has been waiting for it. We’ll roll up our sleeves and start all over now.
MetalDays has gone through many ups and downs and have always managed to provide the right answers, thanks to the honest and flexible approach.
Covid is the greatest challenge of our recent history, but as always our goal is to fight all the obstacles, and to send a positive message of hope to all our visitors, bands, friends, fellow festivals and our crew!
And the most positive message we can send is pretty simple: MetalDays will survive and will happen again year after year!
We thank every one of you for your patience while we held our line until the last possible moment to make an informed decision.
We would also like to thank all the bands who did put themselves forward and we know that they all share our regret and frustration at the situation.
MetalDays 2021 & 2022 all your questions answered
MetalDays 2022 is planned to happen in Tolmin, at the same location, and at the same size and setup.
Based on the latest informations, the work on bypass road shall not influence MetalDays 2022.
Considering the vaccination process at the moment, we can be positive that MetalDays 2022 will take place between 24-30 July 2022.
In the unlikely case of having to postpone the event due to a sudden change of the Covid situation across Europe, we will give you additional informations.
It will be revealed at some later point. It seems like most of you would like us to repeat the lineup of 2021, and we will keep this in mind.
Anyway, many bands from the 2021 lineup are not available for 2022, so there will be definitely some changes.
Your MetalDays 2020, and 2021 tickets are not valid anymore.
But don’t worry you can exchange them for MetalDays 2022 tickets.
New (exchanged) tickets will be valid also in very unlikely situation of changing the location or dates.
You can now choose from 3 options:
a) exchange your 2020 or 2021 ticket for 2022 ticket
b) re-sale your ticket at the TicketSwap.
This option is valid only for MetalDays 2022 tickets, so please use this option after you have received your new (exchanged) ticket.
c) Asking for refund
Exchanging of MetalDays 2020/2021 tickets with the MetalDays 2022 tickets
To be able to get everything under control, we have no other option than to work with new tickets only.
Your old tickets (2020,2021), regardless of being Hard Copy or electronic ticket, and regardless of where you have bought them, will be exchanged with new electronic tickets.
You can do this option until 01.09. 2021
After this date your old tickets are loosing the value, and will not be replaced for the new ones.

All add-on tickets for MetalDays 2020/2021 like Parking, Electricity, Comfort Zone remain valid for MetalDays 2022.
You just need to have them with you when you come to the MetalDays 2022. No additional actions needed.
Refund (option C)
*Those that already applied for refund don’t need to do any additional action.
Due to the devastating influence of the pandemic on our business we are not in the position to refund your tickets at this moment.
Unfortunately, there was no help from the Government, and that made our operation almost impossible.
Though, we can offer refund after the festival 2022.
*Refund can be applied until 01.09. 2021 only.
