Time Warp has been forced to cancel its 2020 edition as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
In a post shared on social media, the festival’s organizers said: “Unfortunately, the developments on the coronavirus have seen drastic change here in German in the past 48 hours. We are very sad to tell you that today the administration of the city of Mannheim has informed us due to the decree from today (Thursday 12th March 2020) that Time Warp DE on 4th April 2020 cannot happen and is prohibited. As many of you have been looking forward to Time Warp for many months this is a very devastating and frustrating experience. As well for us, as we put nearly one year of work into this event to make it an as good and great experience as you know it from previous Time Warp editions.”
The festival says it intends to return in 2021.
Ticket holders for 2020 will be contacted soon with further information.
