No CaDansa in 2020

27 June 2020

Unfortunately we had to make the hard decision as well: this year there will be no CaDansa. The Dutch government has cancelled all big events, most likely until there is a vaccine. If there will be big events allowed before that, it will probably be while having to keep 1,5 meter distance.

This way we can’t guarantee you the CaDansa you love so much: the wonderful balfolk festival full of crazy bands, funny games and beautiful connections. That’s why we decided to cancel CaDansa 2020. We expect to be back in full force for CaDansa 2021, to make an amazing 9th edition with all of you. Of course we’ll keep all the wonderful music and lovely dances, just like you’re used to.

In the meanwhile: stay healthy, keep distance from each other and don’t forget to support Balfolk in these hard times. You can do this several ways, listen to Balfolk on Spotify, watch a livestream of and/or donate to your favorite artist if you can. And let them know you’re not forgetting about them 😉 . We hope to see you all in good health at CaDansa 2021! As soon as the date for CaDansa 2021 is set, we’ll let you know in all the usual ways.

Of course we’ll make CaDansa 2021 a great edition. In the meantime you can support us – we don’t have a festival this year, but unfortunately we do have expenses (like this website) – by donating. You can find more information about donating on the donation page.

We haven’t been posting a lot lately. We miss you all terribly, and the corona pandemic is keeping us pretty busy. We’re trying to figure out a lot of questions. Can our dancers and musicians from abroad come to the Netherlands in October, what will the world be like then, could we make a balfolk event possible in a society where we have to keep 1.5 metre distance?

To give us a little more time to respond to the big changes in society, we’ve decided to move the start of the ticket sales. Instead of on May 16th, it will start on Saturday July 25th at 12:00 noon CEST.

Of course, we hope that we will be able to make CaDansa 2020 happen in the way you’re used to, while following the guidelines of the Dutch government. We’ll keep you posted! In the meanwhile: stay healthy, keep distance from each other and don’t forget to support Balfolk in these hard times. You can do this in several ways: listen to balfolk music on Spotify, watch a livestream and/or donate to your favorite artists if you can. And let them know you’re not forgetting about them ;). We hope to see you all in good health at CaDansa!

Do you guys miss CaDansa as much as we do? If so, we have great news: our website archive is completely done, so you can enjoy all the past years! 🎉
