THANK YOU so much for your kind and supportive messages! We are pretty bummed out that we won’t see you this year, but we will survive, that’s out of question.
We have just coordinated the details with our ticket office (okticket.de) who sent an automated email to all buyers. Please send a message with your details (name, order number, ticket number and either bank account number or paypal address) until 31.05.2020 (latest!) to booking@chaosdescends.com to have your ticket reimbursed. Many of you have asked if they could keep their ticket for next year, but as we have no idea what will happen and how things will work out, we decided against this option. Please allow us a couple of days to handle each request! Thank you!

Hey friends, as many of you may have guessed, Chaos Descends will not take place this year. We have been in touch with local authorities, to define what “major event” means, but honestly, even if there would be a small chance to do it, it would be with strict requirements and “too hot” for us to further plan something that could be cancelled last minute. Also, we care too much for our audience, bands and crew to take any risk. So… let’s get even more wild in 2021!
We will talk to our artists and hope to have most of them aboard next year. Regarding tickets, we will send you a refund and we will post an update on how to proceed next week.
So yeah, put a MIDNIGHT record on you turn table, turn to max volume and get drunk with some strawberry punch on July 16th!

Presale tickets will be available at www.okticket.de from December 16th, 2019, 6pm.
