While they did not clarify if ticket holders will have the option to request a refund since this is the second consecutive year that the festival has had to be cancelled or as they choose to call it “postponed” by an entire year, they said they will contact them directly via email.
Stating that,” Tickets will remain valid and will be honoured for use at the rescheduled festival. All ticket holders will be contacted via the email used for their original purchase with more information regarding their tickets and refund conditions.”
While festivals such as Tomorrowland and Ultra Miami have not given fans the option to refund their tickets in spite of two years of back to back cancellations due to the pandemic, others like EDC and Coachella have. How Ultra Europe will address the issue remains to be seen.
The rescheduled Ultra Europe is set to be hosted from July 8-10, 2022.
