And that's why I can now tell you that the vast majority of headliners have promised us to postpone their performance to the next year. We are currently working on new contracts with them for the 2021 festival’s edition and we will inform you about specific names as soon as possible. We believe that we will be able to move all already announced performers as well as those who are still in secret to next year for.” comments the whole situation the CEO of the festival, Kamil Rudolf.

The organizers also explain why they need help from their fans: “Is your heart beating for Beats for Love? If so, please let’s support the festival together. Postponement of the festival is a huge economic and organizational burden for our entire team. Few people know that we have already had to pay most of the performers’ fees when signing contracts and due to the postponement, the money won’t be returned. We also have year-round costs regarding the preparation of the festival, we have invested in expanding the program, in technology, in the visual side of the festival and also a large sum has already been paid for marketing purposes” - Rudolf explains festival costs.
The organizers also stated that due to postponement of the festival, they will suffer losses which will amount in tens of millions CZK. “These are running costs and costs associated with the postponement of individual headliners. We are trying to reduce these losses to the lowest number possible and we hope that the Government will help us as well”, adds Rudolf.
“ I would like to ask you, our amazing and incredible fans, without whom this would not be possible, for a help. Please keep the already purchased tickets, they remain valid for 2021. It will be a sign of a great solidarity and amazing support, for us, which we enormously value and which we’ll repay you in the coming years in form of the highest quality of organization and program. Many thanks to all those who do so and will help the festival overcome this difficult time. At the same time, thanks to those who are still buying tickets. And there’s a lot of you.
