The Wheels and Waves Team dreamt it, nurtured it, it was within their reach, but due to the current health situation and the latest implemented measures, they have been forced to cancel the Wheels and Waves “Hors Serie” edition that was to be held from 3rd to 6th September 2020.
The Team knew that postponing the festival from June to September 2020 was subject to the evolution of the health situation. They have been reminded of it every day over the past few weeks. But the Wheels and Waves decided to try. Boosted by your encouragements, and the unfailing support of local authorities and their partners working alongside them, they did all they could to offer you an event of a slightly different format but just as exhilarating as always.
Yet the evolution of the health crisis over the past few days, the increasing number of unknown elements, and new restrictions which have been legitimately enforced upon them, began to plant seeds of doubt. Today, the doubt has been replaced by a foregone conclusion: the intensification of the situation has made it impossible for them to continue to prepare the “Hors Serie” edition as they imagined it at the beginning of June. And even if they were to bring the project to fruition, where would the pleasure be in coming together without the spontaneity, coolness, craziness and freedom? What is the point in holding an event based on exchange and sharing at a time when everywhere we go, they have to keep our distance? Confronted by the highly restrictive health measures currently in effect, and because they have a responsibility to take part in keeping everyone safe, they feel duty-bound to cancel the event.
To preserve the founding values of the festival, so that Wheels and Waves remains for ever more a time of sharing, celebration and freedom, Wheels And Waves will be back in 2021 for our 10th anniversary which, can be told you now, will be Extraordinary! Until then, stay connected. The Team will continue to bring you wonderful things to discover and to share…
For all ticket holders, no worries! Check out the conditions for exchange/refunds in your personal account on their website.
