Afrika Festival 2020 Cancelled

Dear Afrika Festival visitor,

In light of recent events regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the Afrika Festival Hertme 2020. Even though the event would take place after 1 June –the date until which the government restrictions are in place – we had to make this harsh and difficult decision. In doing so, we have considered a number of factors, including the following:

  1. Being a non-profit organisation that relies heavily on a large number of volunteers, it is not possible to responsibly organise a large event as ours in the first week of July.

  2. The Afrika Festival is an event with international artists and visitors. Current restrictions have made it difficult to travel and we cannot predict whether this will have improved in July. For this reason, there is a chance that some of our performers and/or visitors will not be able to visit this year’s edition.

Once a year, we want to immerse Hertme in Africa’s vitality and atmosphere and give every visitor a fantastic experience. We are proud that you have grown accustomed to the high standards that we try to surpass each year. This year we had also proudly planned a fantastic event. Still, we have to be realistic and are not able to guarantee this standard.

With much sadness and regret, we have agreed that the Afrika Festival Hertme 2020 must be cancelled.

What’s next?

For those of you who have already bought a ticket, your tickets will automatically be deferred to the Afrika Festival edition of 2021. We have already received your payments, so you can sit back and relax and visit our lovely festival next year!

For those who do not wish to defer their tickets, we have the following options:

Option 1: Repayment

Please send an e-mail before the 4th of July 2020 to with the subject: ‘tickets refund 2020’. Refer to the reference number(s) (REF number) and the name + e-mail address with which the tickets were ordered.

Option 2: Donation

Please send an e-mail to, with the subject ‘Donation’ if you have a soft spot for our amphitheatre and consider donating the entrance fees to the Stichting Theater & Cultuur Hertme. Do not forget to mention the reference number(s) (REF number) and the name + e-mail address with which the tickets were ordered.

Next year we will again organise a fantastic event and we hope to welcome you on 3 and 4 July 2021 in Hertme!

Kind regards,

Organisation Afrika Festival Hertme
