For example, Dance Valley, Milkshake, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Suzan & Freek, Thalia Lounge, De Jeugd van Today and Vunzige Deuntjes are on the bill. The online festival lasts from 4 p.m. to 5 a.m. and can be visited free of charge via 40 streams from the living room.
Due to the corona virus, all festivals in the Netherlands were removed from the agenda last year. With Goodbye 2020, the year is therefore said goodbye and the initiators hope for a better 2021. The organization promises ‘the ultimate form of home entertainment’. On goodbye2020.nl, the visitor is ‘the director of his or her own party’. After the choice has been made for a particular stream, you can contact other partygoers via Zoom.
The idea of Goodbye 2020 comes from Maarten Schulz, founder of online festival platform Follow the Beat. He says: ‘With the increasing number of infections, I wondered how we can motivate people to stay at home in a positive and inventive way with our platform and with the festival sector. That is how the idea arose to bring together as many artists, festivals and clubs online as possible. ‘
