THE END OF THE LEGENDARY FUSION FESTIVAL
Is this the end of the Fusion Festival? Right now it seems to, that the great and legendary Fusion Festival based in Germany will come to an end after two decades of great experiences .
The Fusion Festival is based on an old Russian military airfield just in n the middle of nowhere in northern Germany.
The Fusion had been the biggest electronic holiday camp in the northern hemisphere! Thousends of Techno lovers came around to celebrate an independent happening around he motto: 4 days of ‘holiday communism’.
Music of all kinds, theatre, performance and cinema, and a wide spectrum of installations, interaction, arts and communication had been fixed components of the festival.
But right now we become shocked and we have very sad news for the independent Festival community.
After the Festival 2016, the main promoter Martin Eulenhaupt, announces to suspend the Festival for one year, to allow themselves and all the helping people, a creative cool-off period to gain time to make some important structural modifications on the festival and the area itself .
So the Fusion collective had just published the next date for the upcoming Fusion Festival in 2018. In all info sheets for the festival this year you was able to find the announcement for the next Fusion Festival which will be on 27. June. to 1. July. 2018.
After some financial crises in the past and after 20 years of running the festival it seems that collective of leading people can not resist any longer the pressure of the local government and police, the rising costs for artists and at least, defy the competition of a constantly growing EDM festival market itself.
So the collective had be hustled into a decision for the future to keep the festival alive.
We have now evidences that prove the Fusion Festival will be finally sold to a Major Event agency, which we do not know right now.
We will keep you posted for further news and the next steps of the Fusion Festival in 2018.
