Lowlands, together with the public broadcaster, will organize a free digital event on the weekend that the festival should have taken place, on August 20-22.
During the Lowlands weekend, archive footage and recordings of bands that were to come are shown. In addition, a side program with yoga, philosophy, visual arts and literature is being set up. ‘We receive a lot of emails from people who say, for example, that they are now going to sit with grandfather in the orchard with fifty festivalgoers during the Lowlands weekend. Things like that, ”said organizer Mojo.
The concert organizer will announce more details later this week.
Festival director Eric van Eerdenburg (59) complains in the Volkskrant that his sector is broken due to strict corona measures. ‘The number of infections is out of proportion to the suffering caused by the measures in the culture sector. There is great arbitrariness and we are being sacrificed. ”
Mojo, the company he works for, just had to fire a third of its staff.
